I absolutely adore being around children and am always the person at family functions running around or engaging in silly games with the kids. I spent several summers during college working at an infant daycare and was in charge of mutiple infants. I also spent a summer nannying for a young boy. I was an AmeriCorps VISTA at Head Start preschool. While at Head Start I learned developmentally appropriate games and activities for young children. I also have knowledge of activities that are appropriate for infants to increase motor and cognitive skills. I was in the classroom daily and was in charge of creating literacy projects for the preschool children using the 40 develomental assets. I learned the importance of play but also of having boundaries and age appropriate set consequences for young children.
I have experience with older children as well and have been a volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters for the last 5 years. I also spent much of my professional life providing healthy relationship trainings to young adults and put on many teen based events.
I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in English and am an avid reader and love reading to, and with, kids. I am in the process of learning Spanish and have a basic foundation of the language and am also taking an online course to be a certified Teaching English as a Foreign Language teacher where I have learned great language acquisition skills. I will be relocating from Montana and am a huge fan of the outdoors. I love hiking, fishing, camping, really any outdoor activities. I have also been involved with theatre throughout my life and love singing (albeit poorly), dancing and coming up with fun games. I am currently taking online nutrition courses and love to cook and share new recipes. I am happy to help clean around the house and do laundry as well. My schedule will be flexible so I would also be available for evenings or weekends.
