Hi! I'm Lara, (Laaarrr-a)! I've recently completed my California Teaching Credential program specializing with early education. I performed my student teaching in Torrance, California in the third and kindergarten grades. I have been a nanny throughout my college education for a family that now has 5 children ranging in ages 10- newborn. They moved a couple years ago and am now watching her sisters' children, a 3-year-old and twins that are 10 months old.

I was an art student and LOVE to teach kids through arts/ crafts and through new experiences. I am more than willing to take kids outdoors and to museums, or the library. I love reading to children and doing activities to aid in their reading fluency and comprehension development.

I have also had experience with young adults and individuals with special needs through my education as well as teaching.
