I've been working with kids of all ages for as long as I can remember. I began working in a daycare at 16. From there I grew to another school and was a lead teacher of my own class. Teaching children is as much a learning experience for me as it is students. I've also had experience nannying,which I liked because it was a personal experience. I would like to eventually get back into school teaching because I'm very organized and enjoyed making weekly lesson plans. I'm outgoing,communicative,open-minded,and creative. I’m also able to provide impeccable references. In total, I’ve been working with children for the last twelve (almost thirteen) years. I’d really love to connect with a family and give much more information on where I’ve come from. Oh-and I’m a mom!
