I am 31 years old and have worked with children since I was 16. Most recently, I was a teacher's assistant at an independent school for 3-4-year-olds. I have extensive knowledge and education with this age group regarding social, academic, developmental, and emotional development. I also have a large amount of experience with other age groups, infants through 12. Currently, I am in grad school for counseling, and have class on Monday's and Wednesday's from 5:30-9:30 p.m. , which would be my only conflicts. My philosophy in taking care of children, is there is never a need for time out, other methods such as talking it through and explaining why an action is inappropriate, can be more effective. I believe there is no benefit of sitting a child in front of a TV. The occasional movie or TV show is OK, but other activities are so much more beneficial. Children Read more at all ages have brains like sponges and that should be taken advantage of. I like to have fun at work and I don't sit still very easily, which makes me a perfect fit for working with children. Of course I would not be the child's parent, therefore I will talk at great length with the parents to ensure I am taking care of their child exactly as they were if they could be home. If you have questions or concerns, please contact me. I would love to hear from you!
