My name is Maya. I've been working with kids for just over 4 years, ranging from day care, summer camp, and nannying. I've worked with children ages 6 months - 14 years old. I prefer to focus on smaller groups of 1-4 children, however I have experience teaching groups of 30.
I am passionate about teaching and creating activities that get kids excited to learn. I am an artist and believe it is important to give kids the opportunity to express themselves creatively.
My goal is to help create happy productive children by being a positive and supportive role model in their lives, and to help them live up to their full potential.
I recently moved here from Seattle and was heartbroken to leave the family I had been with. I worked with them for over a year and half and really felt like a member of the family. The Seattle gloom and gray finally won, so here I am!
Some of my favourite activities include: Theater, Singing, Acting, Dancing, Arts and Crafts, Puppet Shows, Reading, Writing, Story Telling, Costuming, Sewing, Ukulele, Guitar, Some Piano, Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, Swimming, Face Painting
I also provide: Cooking/Meal Preparation, Basic Errands, Laundry, Grocery Shopping, Light Housekeeping, Help with homework.
I am American Red Cross CPR/ First Aid Certified for Adult, Child, and Infant and have a Valid Driver's License.
