Hi, my name is Chloe and I'm 25. I'm originally from France and I have a degree in English. I'd like to become an French teacher. Since September, I've been volunteering in High school (in the French Class) I've started working as a babysitter when I was 16 and I then became an Au pair, I worked for a year in the UK. I took care of a 12-year-old and 2-year-old, the following year I took care of twins girls ( 3 months old) in Pennsylvania; I just finished my two years contract with a family in Benicia, I took care of 2 boys who are 3 and 7 now. I always enjoyed being around children. Being a nanny or a babysitter is a very fulfilling job, I love to teach to children but I also really enjoy learning from them. I consider myself as a very creative person. I love to do arts and crafts, I often go online and try to find new ideas that I can recreate with children. I'm a very outdoorsy person, I love to go to the park or just play in the backyard. Physical activities are really important to me. I enjoy reading stories, playing boardgames, hide and seek, or any made up games children love to come up with. I also love to bake, and children are usually very happy to help me bake delicious treats. :)
