I AM AVAILABLE SUMMER '17 As a camp counselor: I was responsible for the safety and recreational needs of children ranging in ages from 4-10yrs in a camp setting.  I helped the children to adhere to a rigid schedule requiring them to be on time. I taught a developmentally delayed child to 'tell time' on a 'face clock'.  I planned recreational activities that were educational and those which included movement and encouraged physical and self esteem growth and creative activities including music/singing and arts and crafts. Full time childcare in private residences: I was involved in all aspects of two children's lives for a 10day period while the parents were away.  I was responsible for all of the household management, including keeping the environment neat, attending to all of the children's needs with regard to transportation, nurturing, entertaining, providing nutritional meals, all within the family's budget.  These children's ages ranged Read more from 11-15. Residential/Residential School setting: In these environments I worked with adolescents,upholding the disciplinary requirements as well as being consistent with regard to limits.  Within the residence, I was responsible for dispensing medication, supervision and counselling of the residents while staying acutely aware of their emotional needs, selecting appropriate activities keeping within a tight budget, all meal preparation, supervising chores, food shopping, homework assistance, overnight supervision and for clear communications (including log book notes) with other residential staff members. Within the school setting, I was responsible for some lesson planning, tutoring two high-level math students (algebra, geometry), assisting the teachers with all subjects but most especially with low level reading students.  For these students, I created reading games/puzzles which helped make reading more exciting and motivated the students.
