Additionally, I was a Valedictorian for my High School, and served as Secretary and Student Body President for College from 2009-2010.

I was the master preschool teacher at a Childcare Center, until my school got bought out. Now I'm going back to my passion of being a nanny. Prior to being a preschool teacher, I was full time nanny for a family with three children. Prior to that I was in school getting my BA, and was also a residential counselor at a group home for at risk youth. There I was in charge of six emotionally troubled girls. I have worked with all ages of children, male and female, and am great with any age or gender. I also have a lot of volunteer experience. My three main ones are being a Sunday school teacher, being a tutor for underprivileged children, and working with homeless families. I have my site supervisor certificate in early childhood education. I am CPR certified, and have extensive training in working with kids. I got my babysitting license the second I turned 13, and have been extensively working with children ever since. I also have a BA in business management and a minor in Non-Profit management. Working with children, is where I want to be.
