While working on my B.A. in Child Development, I was working with infants and toddlers (for about 4 years). Occasionally, I'd work with school-aged children during those years and more recently (the past 2 years) I work with school-aged boys on the Autism Spectrum. I love working with children and having an opportunity to be a positive figure in their lives.
