At my old high school, Cypress Woods High School, there was a program called the Wildcat Den where we took car of three and four year olds and taught them the basics of preschool in preparation to start in kindergarten. I was also a part of a PALs organization where I helped special needs kids (as well as troubled middle and elementary school children) with their studies and progressional attitudes in a day to day basis. I have taught Vacation Bible School to a group of kindergarteners for an entire summer. I self-taught myself Chinese to speak to a four year old and teach him English in the process. I am limited in American Sign Language as well. For my church, I have also been a daycare teacher where I take the kids during service hours and feed them and teach them about God as well as hang out and Read more have fun. I am CPR certified, I'm trained in AED/First Aid. I speak minimal Spanish, Sign Language, and Chinese. All of the preparation I've had in education has been for three or more years.
