Penelope’s Bio

Hello, my name is Penelope. I'm a college graduate of Rutgers University, processing two baccalaureate degrees, one in Psychology and one in English. I'm 36 years old, live in South Jersey and have a 5 month old baby girl. I've had lots of experience with
children, students & families.

Currently, I work for Source 4 Teachers and Mission One, as a long term substitute teacher in South Jersey schools. I work with kids of all ages from grades K - 8; those with disabilities and those without disabilities. And I have no problem or difficulty with either subset of child. My career goals are as follows: I want to secure a solid career in the early childhood education, elementary education &/or special education fields. I plan on going back to school, taking the alternative route, to obtain my teaching certification and to simultaneously, complete my Master's Degree in which I am half way complete.

While I enjoyed most of my jobs, working with children has bern the most enjoyable of all because its fulfilling, worthwhile & I know that I'm making a difference in young people's lives. When working at the Academy for Early Learning in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I worked on the baby/toddler side of the center with children as young as one month old up to children as old as 3 years. It was a very rewarding experience.

I am extremely patient with children, allowing them to explore and learn at their own pace. Likewise, I enjoy playing games with them and keeping them entertained.  While taking care of your child, preparing meals is not a problem at all. I'll thoroughly clean up messes after meals, snacks & play time.

While I don't have my own vehicle at the moment, I do have reliable transpiration via a cab/taxi service that I utilize.
