My job experience is solely based on child care. These jobs have put me in positions where I had to learn how to be responsible, kind, caring, mature, yet fun-loving, and patient. From an early age I took care of my younger cousins. I always looked after them, kept them clean, and kept them distracted by playing or watching TV so that they wouldn't become bored or restless. During the Summer of 2014, I worked as a student counselor at a camp that I myself attended as a child. I mainly worked with children of 4-11 years old. After the summer ended, I began working at an elementary school's after care program during the 2014-2015 school year. I helped many kinds with their homework. took them to the bathroom to wash their hands, gave them snack, and interacted with them by playing games, either outdoors or indoors. And during the Read more Summer of 2015 I returned to the summer camp to work as a student counselor, however this time around, my job was full time. I worked almost every day of the week. I feel that the experience I've gained and lessons I've learned from babysitting and working in child care make me qualified to work in this field. I believe that working with children is something I do best. I am also CPR certified. Most recently I have babysat for two different families, one per semester of college. Those experiences have each been very beneficial as they've added on to my lost of experience and they also taught me knew ways to be the best sitter I can be.
