Growing up in a family that owns an outfitting company: http://www.highlandsunlimited.com in the San Juan Mountains in Colorado, my Mother literally carried me on horseback into hunting camps when I was six days old. Along with the outfitting business, my parents farm hay and have worked in the ski industry during the winter. My childhood revolved around being with the family and helping when I was able; in the woods, on the farm, following classes around the ski area, or riding in a snow cat at night. I can ride a horse, pack a mule, start a fire, change a tire, make coffee, weave bracelets, sew a button on, weed a garden and plant one too. I can ski and snow board, build a quinsy and play Lacrosse and ultimate Frisbee. I have an expansive amount of experience in the outdoors and living in the Southwest and a passion for history, being physically active, and interacting with diverse cultural populations.

Hi, my name is Karin. I recently have graduated from Fort Lewis College last May with my degree in Elementary Education & minor in Spanish. I am not ready to be a classroom teacher just yet and prefer focusing on 2-5 children at a time! I am a lifeguard and swim instructor at a xx & have all the certifications required. I am looking for an after-school pickup sort of job with maybe some private swim lessons included. I am very outdoorsy person (local raft guide) and love to spend afternoons out in the fresh air, yet I also know when it's time to come inside and do homework. I have over 8 years of experience teaching swimming lessons and 5 years in the classroom. I have lots of babysitting side jobs since the age of 15.
