Kira’s Bio

Full Name: Kirstin Rae Tuttle     Nickname: Kira
Age: 24 years of age
Years of Experience: 11 years of child care experience
I've also worked for The Discovery Center from March 2013-June 2013 for the Spring season with 4th, 5th and 6th graders.
Reccently I was working at Marlborough Elementary School for their before and after school program [MECCA] from 7:00am-8:30am and from 2:15/45pm until 5:30/6:00pm Monday through Friday.
I worked all summer (from 2010-present) at YMCA camp Mohawk as the Unit Leader for the Senior Unit (Ages 14-16) a senior counselor, trip leader, life guard and assistant horse back riding staff. I have worked for two years as a teachers assistant at an elementary school in Virginia Beach, VA called Betty F. Williams Elementary school.
A little about me: I have a mother named Sharon and a step father named Steve who live in New York with our lovely black lab Jack. I also have a father named Don and a step mother named Elaine they in Connecticut with my eight year old brother Jake, and two pets Max and Maverick. I have a sister named Kelsey who just graduated from Unity College in Maine. We are very close and I am so very proud of her.
Here are some things that my campers have said about me:
 "I think it's fantastic that you know the names of every single camper in your Unit and that you truly care about every single one of them. You amaze me."  Natalia
"You always make me feel better when I am down." Cayla
 "You are an awesome counselor, and I love how you care about your campers." Emily
"You are an amazing person. You are so nice and sweet. This summer you are making an impact on so many girl's lives, including mine. Thank you!" Lauren
"You are my role model, friend, and counselor all-in one. Everything you do makes me want to be a better person. You're funny, charming and sweet. Thank you for being there and being somebody I look up to. Love you forever." Em
Here are some of the other counselor's quotes:
"It was great meeting you this summer. You're so sweet and you were always willing to talk to me no matter how busy you were." Sara
"You are one of the lovliest, most genuinely kind people I have ever met." Leah
 "I couldn't have gotten through this summer without you." Emily
"You are always so nice and friendly!" Nora
"You have such a great way about you, people arre so comfortable around you. I am so glad to have gotten to know you, I feel very lucky." Sam
 "You are the sweeest person at camp. Always postive with something nice to say. I always cheered up when you were around." Ashley
"Your always so happy and full of spirit!" Katie
"From the start you were always super open and welcoming, and it's great! Your girls obviously love you and so do all of the staff!" Alison

If you need any more references I would be more than happy to give them to you.
