Leah’s Bio

I recently completed my graduate degree in Social Work and moved back to the area to be close to my family . I am looking for part-time work while studying for the licensing exam. In addition to studying child development both in graduate and undergraduate school, I completed multiple internships where I worked with children in various environments and capacities. My goal is to help disadvantaged children, and children with  disabilities such as autism.

Responsible, empathetic, caring, fun-loving, and creative are words which describe me. I enjoy engaging children in activities such as imaginary play, art projects, reading, and baking. I find helping children with homework to be rewarding because not only have I taught them something, but they have taught me a lesson as well. I have personal experience working with children who have learning and developmental disabilities.

I am available to start in January and can provide references in addition to the ones I have listed on my profile upon request.
