Matia’s Bio


I have about 10 years of experience working with children, and 6 years of experience working with special needs including Autism and Down Syndrome. I also have experience working with behavior issues and disruptive behavior disorder. I've worked for the public school system as a substitute para educator, in summer camps as a para educator and a counselor, as well as a nanny, babysitter, substitute teacher, and personal care attendant. Most of my experience is with ages 5 years old - 12 years old but I feel more than comfortable working with all ages. I am avid about keeping kids engaged and encouraging independence and creativity. I always incorporate outdoor activities and avoid the use of the television and technology. I am very flexible with my schedule, and I have a reliable car as well as a clean driving record. I am also comfortable with all sorts of animals as well as with cooking meals for kids. After I graduated in May, I spent the summer of 2012 in Wyoming working at a dude ranch as a "Kid's Wrangler". This meant that I was the wrangler selected to give the kids visiting the ranch riding lessons, plays different games on horseback with them, and take them on their rides all week. Later in the season, I was promoted to Assistant Head Wrangler as well and took on a supervisory position over the barn. This summer (2013) I returned as the Head Wrangler. If there are any questions or further information is needed please feel free to contact me.
