I work at xx School. I am the Health Aide. I work with more than 300 kids. I have taken a CNA (certified nursing assistant) program. I have also gotten the opportunity to work with children that have special needs, and that have disabilities. I also have experience with taking care of my younger brother and my nephews for a couple of years now. I have my CPR certification, and I also have my fingerprint card. I love working with kids. I love it when a child comes up and gives me a hug because then I know that I have done my job correctly. I am studying to be an elementary teacher in college, and I hope that one day I can achieve my goal. My past childcare experiences have always been very fun, and I also get the opportunity to learn new experiences everyday with kids.
