I have had quite a bit of experience with children in my life... -I started babysitting around middle school. -My mom teaches 1st grade so I've worked in her classroom doing everything from tutoring to art projects for years. -I owned a hair salon for 5 years but a couple of years ago God opened a door for me to be a live-in nanny in Guam,for a USAF commander and her 4 yr. old daughter, Reagan! Since I am young I took the opportunity, and I'm so glad I did. It was an unbelievable experience! Other things I've done... -My first job was a birthday party hostess for kids of all ages(setting up and serving so the parents didnt have too.)I guess that's why I LOVE b-day cake soo much now! :), -I worked a couple of summers for 2 different camps for special needs children...one was more about arts & crafts, and the other taught swimming lessons to those chikdren who were able to learn and played in the water with those who couldn't.
