From September 2008 to August 2009 I held a job at a daycare center called Adventure Club. I cared for children ages 6-12 from 1:30 to 5:30 in the evening. At this job I learned how to relate with the kids, developed problem solving skills through mediating disagreements, and developed the ability to keep track of 30+ kids while on field trips. I think this job benefited me greatly, but I had to take a temporary leave due to my freshman year of college at Bemidji State where I am majoring in Elementary Education with hopes of becoming a teacher. Along with Adventure Club, I have sporadically taken jobs at different educational programs such as Environmental Camp, which is camp held one week out of the summer that focuses on helping kids learn about the environment through detailed activities and field trips to nature centers. This past summer I also nannyed a family with two kids, one by the age of three and the other by the age of five. This experience was beneficial because I got to see how nannying works through a fun, healthy environment. Also, within my last four years of high school, I attended two mission trips, one to Montana and the other to Mississippi. Both trips I worked with my group at the Boys and Girls Club where we spent hours playing with the kids and taking their minds off of the stressful situations that they lived in.
