About me

Hi there! I'm Katie Cepeda and I am a freelance journalist and a substitute teacher at Fieldston Lower School. I've been working with kids since I was 15 years old and I absolutely love it.When I was 15 years old, I volunteered as a bible school instructor for children ages 5-8.During this time, I enjoyed creating dynamic hands on activities that fully engage children into the lesson and I continued to be a bible instructor until age 18. This experience is was made me realize my passion for working with kids.

Throughout college I was in an after-school program and worked with kids and pre-teens. I'd assist them with homework, help them finish projects and study for upcoming tests. In the summer I had the opportunity to become a camp counselor. This experience helped me learn to adapt to new environments and individuals because I'd work with different age groups and backgrounds.

I began babysitting when I was a sophomore in college and I've primarily worked with kids ages 6-8, but I love children of all ages. When working with kids I try to be very creative and engaging while maintaining a safe and secure environment. If it's nice out I like to take the kids outside but if not, I love doing arts and crafts, baking tasty treats, assisting with homework and watching movies with them. In my free time I enjoy working out, writing blogs, and playing my guitar.
