Hello! My name is Cassie and I love working with children, I have three brothers at home whom I take care of for my single mother. I have a newborn niece who I also take care of on a regular basis. I have experience as a camp counselor, pre-school teacher, and a kindergarten teacher. I recently graduated from Northern Illinois University with a teaching certificate for High School English. I have spent my entire working career at jobs with children. I began working as a swim instructor for ages 2-12 for two years. I continued to work as a camp counselor for ages 5-12 for five years. In this experience I have spent over 8 hours a day with the children, planning theme days and activities. During the school year I have worked as a preschool teacher for two year olds, kindergarten teacher, and an after school teacher for grade school children. I have been certified in CPR, First Aid, Blood Pathogen, and AED for five years. In addition, I have spent numerous hours babysitting my infant nieces. At the present time, I have a niece who is two months old whom I take care of four days a week. I understand the responsibilities of changing diapers as well as soothing infants in times of distress. I am excellent at multi-tasking, especially when working with multiple children. I can start working the second week in August.
