Lauren C. - Seeking Work in El Cajon

Hourly rate20.00 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I started working with children when I was 15 1/2 years old at an after school program. There, I was an aide to the teachers. I really enjoyed my work and I looked forward going there after school. As years pass, I found other jobs working with children - I was a camp counselor , I volunteered at childcare centers, I tutored children from an elementary level to a high school level, I became a nanny and babysitter, and I taught at a preschool level. Its difficult to describe my experiences with children since there has been so many and they all brought in something different to myself. When I was nanny, I relished the days we could go to the beach, the park, the museum, and anywhere in between. As a camp counselor, I taught them the value of taking care of animals and teamwork, as well as, humanity and empathy. Every job brought in a different child, but they all wanted one thing - to learn.

I have worked with multiple children ranging from infants, toddlers and even a few needy teens. I love the feeling of being able to help someone weather its just feeding them, changing a dirty diaper, giving them a nice bath or simply just reading them a book. Growing up my mom ran a daycare and did foster care out of our home which has led me to doing what I know best but also what I love and that is taking care of children.
