Kristen W. - Seeking Work in Moodus

14.28 / hour

Since my early teenage years, I have spent much of my free time working as a Mother's Helper or Babysitter. I have strong experience with children between the ages of 5 and 17, but have also babysat for infants and toddlers. During summers in high school and college, I worked as a camp counselor at an overnight camp in my home town. From my work as a camp counselor, I love to sing songs, do crafts, teach skills about nature and outdoor living, play sports and real or made-up games, spend time outside, and really explore the things that children are curious about. I have additional experience working with a variety of special needs children, including those with Downs syndrome, Autism, and developmental delays. In May I will be graduating from Roanoke College in Virginia with a double degree in Psychology and Spanish.
