I am a certified elementary teacher. I love working with children and teaching them in a way that allows them to enjoy what they are learning. I love incorporating songs, movements, and manipulatives into my teaching. I am currently a teacher. I have had lots of experience working with children with disabilities in my field. I was employed as a therapeutic support for a child diagnosed with autism in a summer camp setting. I also was employed as a paraprofessional for a first grade student diagnosed with ADHD and autism. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked as a nanny for a family in Oregon. They had an amazing 2-year-old daughter that I adored greatly. We'd visit the museum and zoo often and would go for walks to the park a lot. I enjoy the outdoors so we'd always go for long walks, visit farms and orchards and explore nature. She was involved in a lot of activities to allow her the opportunity to socialize with other children her age. I would take her swimming, mommy and me classes, music classes, library activities, and gymnastics. We were always busy. I also worked as a nanny for 2 boys, ages 2 and 4 in Pennsylvania. They were very active, smart boys that loved to play. These boys loved to learn and I would often make posters to track their process in letters and numbers they had mastered. We did so much together. We were involved in t-ball, gymnastics, mommy and me classes. Needless to say, I have worked for countless families growing up. I babysat children from infancy to 12 years old. Working with children makes my life fulfilled and I love all of the experiences I have had.
