I attend Eastern Michigan University, Currently I am social work major. Originally I imagined a career in education but I think being a social worker I can reach more children in need. Whether that be working directly with children or with parents and guardians to be the role models and the inspiration that people need. I am creative and very crafty. I like to keep children active starting as early as three months. I have tons of age appropriate activities for so many children. My experience working with children began when I was 12. I started babysitting for my neighbors two daughters 7 and 8. I sat for them for them for 3 in a half years until they were old enough to watch themselves. During the summer, (2009-2017) that I was a camp counselor for 18-24 five, six, seven, and eight year olds. I supervised them on various field Read more trips including camping,boating, and swimming. After the day camp was over a few of the moms hired me for care for the rest of the summer. I worked part time for three families. I provided care in my home for a 8 month old, 2 year old, 2 6 year olds, and an 8 year old. Staggering hours of course. I also worked voluntarily for single mothers who couldn’t afford care while working intensive hours not even for a nap. I go through my experience to show potential families, you, that I am versatile in many age groups and quantity of children. I’d love to be an important factor in your child's development.
