Destiny H. - Seeking Work in East Hartford

14.28 / hour
Full-time hours

I've worked with children for a very long time. Either being paid for it or just volunteer work. During the four years that I was in High School at Medical Professions and Teacher Preparations Academy the upperclassmen like myself would go down to the Pre-K and teach to them, play games, prepared snack and lunch and much more. When my youngest sister was born and my eldest sister was not there and when my mother would work. I would stay home and take care of her. The same with my eldest sisters two kids when they were born. Along with friends of the families and cousins infants when they were born. I worked as a Camp counselor for two years with the ages 6-9. With that I got my CPR/First-Aid/AED and Epi-Pen certifications. I worked with all kinds of kids and even some with disabilities and several with food allergies. Even now as my niece and nephew grow I watch them and provide for them when it's needed.

I love working with children. I've worked with infants to older children between the ages of 7-10. I like to play games, be outside, do crafts and have lots of fun. I follow the parent's rules so the kids have structure and guidelines but I'm someone they can still relax with and be comfortable around. I enjoy cleaning and cooking. I can read bed time stories and get kids up in the morning or ready for bed at night.
