Mercedes’s Bio

My name is Mercedes. I'm from Spain and I have lived in the US since 2000. I graduated with a psychology degree from Loyola University Chicago, where I took several classes on child development and became fascinated by it. I'm currently looking for a full time or part time. I have an intensive experience with newborn and toddlers. I'm a kid at heart. I'm a fan of Lego and blocks, and dolls, and I love playing with action figures, puzzles and read books. I also love cooking, as well as baking cookies and cupcakes with the kids. I also like to spend time outdoors, play in the park, go to museums and sports. I'm a very healthy person and I don't smoke or drink. I've had my driver's license for over 15 years, I have a clean record, and never had an accident. I would define myself as educated, patient, organized, friendly, punctual, reliable, and responsible. Thank you for your time.
