About Me

Working with children has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Making a connection with a child and doing something positive for them can be such a rewarding experience, and I see myself working with children for the rest of my life. I have taken classes towards a degree in education, and I would love to continue pursuing that goal.

Over the past ten years, I have had the opportunity to work in many different facets of childcare. From volunteering for religious education, to a full time assistant in a daycare. I have truly loved all of it, especially my most recent position as a nanny. I have gained experience with infants as young as six weeks to kids in their pre-teens. Last year, I worked and an arts and crafts specialist at a summer camp for children with special needs. That molded together my two favorite things: working with kids and art. Not to mention working in a brand new dynamic that I really enjoyed. I love to help children learn and express themselves creatively – it’s fun for me, too!
