Kimberly C. - Seeking Work in Theodore

7.54 / hour

My name is Kimberly, I am 20 years old and I love kids! I currently live in Mobile. I am attending college and majoring in elementary education. I have 5 younger siblings, ranging in ages from 4 to 14 and I have taken care of them on numerous occasions from the time they were babies up until now. I have also worked in a day care at 2 different churches, caring for children ranging in ages from 12 weeks to 12 years. I am a not a smoker and I have my own reliable car, as well as, a clean driving record. I am also a dog owner so I would definitely not mind being around pets if you have them. I am a clean and organized person so I am willing to do some housekeeping also. I am available everyday except for Friday because of school, but I am available some Friday nights. I’d be happy to provide references as well as meet or chat on the phone.

My mom had a daycare and so I have been around little children for as long as I can remember. I started working in the nursery at my church at the age of 12, and continued working there until I left home for college. Throughout the years I have baby-sat for a few families, with the largest family being 5 children all under the age of 6 (with two of them being twins). I recently graduated from a university with my teaching certificate for junior high and high school--so needless to say, I am completely comfortable around older children as well! With my degree, I have some basic training in working with children with learning disabilities or challenges. I believe that children should play outdoors more, and watch TV less (if at all). Going on walks, playing outside, going to the park or library on a regular basis--these are the things that should fill a child's day up.
