Meet Rachel

My name is Rachel Denton and I am from Portland Oregon. I am 23 years old and am the oldest of five children (I have a twelve year old sister and three brothers ages eighteen, fifteen and nine). I love the great outdoors, especially hiking and camping (which is kind of hard to avoid when you grew up in Oregon!). I also love to dance ballet and am a big runner. But mostly, I love spending quality time with my family.   Currently, I am a senior at Brigham Young University studying Early Childhood Education specialized in Child Development. I know you are receiving many qualified applicants for this position, but if I may, I would just like to share with you what sets me apart.   Children are my life and my passion. They truly are. I started babysitting for other families when I was eleven years old, and Read more haven’t stopped with children since. The knowledge and skills that I have gathered over the past ten years through my education and experience have become incredibly valuable to me. As I am planning on pursuing a degree that requires is so consumed by children, I really feel as though I have the experience and qualifications you are looking for.   Over the past 12 years, I have babysat for a wide variety of families. I have experience with children ranging from four weeks old to fifteen years old. Throughout my youth, I had a babysitting job at least every weekend for these different families. However, when I grew older I began to nanny. My first nanny job was with a family with a three year old and a one year old daughter. Although I was a part-time nanny, I was able to form a close bond with both girls and grew to love them as my own children. Unfortunately, the family ended up moving to Singapore for work-related issues. On an academic level, I have taken a number of Child Development courses such as:   Infants and Toddlers: Explores ways to foster normal development of infants and toddlers including physical, cognitive, social and emotional domains of development. Application to parenting and other caregiving situations. Foundations of Early Childhood: An introductory course for those who will work with children in preschool or after school settings. This course will provide an overview of work in these areas, historical foundations of working professionally with children, curriculum
