Iva’s Bio

Hello, Dear Families.
I have an Associate Degree in Child Development. My training as a child care professional was enriched by many classroom observations, practical activities, and great instructors. In the summer of 2012 I did my student teaching at Truman College Lab School. After that, I worked little over a year as a teacher in a preschool classroom (ages 3-5) at Christopher House, Uptown.
I attended numerous trainings and workshops regarding children’s growth and development. I also have experience working with children with special needs.
During my studies I occasionally took care of family friends’ children and pets.
I speak Bulgarian, English, and Bosnian.
I have Bachelor Degree in Philosophy, which I obtained in my home country - Bulgaria.
I've been living in Chicago since 2006..., and I love it!

Loved Iva

We interviewed with Iva on the phone and had her over to the house meet the babes. She is a very honest, genuine, and warm soul who I would have trusted with my kids in a heartbeat. She has a real understanding of what is important to a preschooler and connected instantly with my 7 month old. Unfortunately, due to scheduling for the most part, we weren't able to make it work with her, but I would highly recommend you giving her a shot if you are looking for someone who is mature/responsible, with early childhood background, really genuine, (very clear English as well), and all around a sweet animal and people loving person.
