Meet Trina

  • Speaks Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets

My mother has been an incredible Special Ed teacher for 25+ years and has shared with me her love, respect and knowledge of children. I have childcare experience in many fields -- babysitter, camp counselor, teacher, theatre director, nanny, mothers helper, and mentor. My substitute teaching experience is at a school for children with special needs, including working with many students with Autism, Aspergers, ADD/ADHD, SED, and other development or learning delays. Being a camp counselor taught me the fun of playing with kids and the responsibility of being a child's mentor, teacher, and primary care giver. I believe that building trust and respect with the kids i work with is essential--this means a relationship that exists somewhere between the rule enforcer and the playmate. It involves a lot of creating and playing crazy new games, making new things, trying new activities together, and teaching new skills. It can mean Read more both getting messy and cleaning up. It also means enforcing homework time, generally healthy eating (with the occasional treats), getting off the computer/TV/game system and getting outside when possible, and bedtime. Setting boundaries like these help to create structure and trust. I'm also very open to addressing specific wants and needs of individual children, as every child and family is not the same. I am conversational in Spanish and love pets, especially dogs and cats!
