I have been a babysitter for children in infancy to pre-teen ages. I have worked in a preschool and have also worked with children with a variety of disabilities, such as Down Syndrome, Autism, ODD, ADHD, and history of trauma. I currently work as a Special Education Para Educator for Vancouver School District; I work in a behaviorally-focused day-treatment setting, with all grades between kindergarten and 21 years. I have experience with a variety of behavioral and emotional crises in the classroom and home settings. I am comfortable with multiple children, being around pets, and driving with kids. I have a BA in Music and have a passion for sharing physical activity and the arts with kids. I have been known to do stretching or yoga, write poetry, and practice reading with the kiddos in my care. I am Crisis Prevention Intervention certified, trained in deescalation techniques, and just love Read more working with kids! I am in the process of getting certified to teach special education.
