Gracie R. - Seeking Work in Pocahontas

Hourly rate10.00 / hour
Years of childcare experience1 yrs of experience

Hello, my name is Grace but most people call me Gracie. I have always wanted to work with kids but not really into the idea of being teacher. I absolutely adore babies and young kiddos. I have taken many CPR and first aid classes with girl scouts and school and with my church. I am a Christian and I think that love and respect for everyone is something with world is in desperate need of. I have experience working with special needs children(mainly mental needs) and have been around them since I can remember (especially with my mom running a counseling agency and all). I am very patient and loving however I know when to take action and when to calm them down a bit too. I am good at finding creative and imaginative way for kiddos to put their energy to use too.
