Well, I have always loved children. When I was young, I babysat for all the neighbor's kids. After moving to Chicago after college, I tutored a little girl for 5 years. Then my actual job entailed running an employee tutoring program, which was highly successful because of my efforts and thorough enjoyment of the students. I have six nieces and nephews who I have helped to raise, including one with special needs. They especially enjoy me because I love doing all the activities they do, like playing on park equipment, playing with toys and just having kid fun. Yet I make sure they are always learning and working on their manners etc. But I am young at heart and children love me and I love spending time with them.
