Hello my name is Maria and I get a lot of inspiration and fulfillment from working with children and youth of all ages and backgrounds. I have had extensive and varied experience working with youth, from babysitting for neighbors and friends on and off since I was 16, being a personal care assistant for diverse clients with disabilities for over 5 years, and also working with youth in communities in Minneapolis, Colombia, and Argentina. I also have taught Spanish locally at Wheeler for kids ages nursery theough 5th grade and have babysit for families with kids of all ages. I am very passionate and not only making sure that kids are having safe fun and properly supervised and cared for according to the families requests and instructions, but I also look for the "teachable moment" in many situations that can spark interesting conversations. I like to let youth know that Read more the world is theirs, that they each have talents and strengths that are important to recognize. I am very independent and have worked a variety of jobs in different countries. Do not hesitate to contact me please! PS I also SPEAK SPANISH!
