Karen Z. - Seeking Work in New Milford

11.42 / hour

I have been babysitting since I was ten years old for children around my neighborhood. I have also worked as a mother's helper during the summer for a family with four children. Their ages ranged from two-ten years old and I loved every second of it. I helped the children get ready for their activities such as: hockey games/practice, arts and crafts, baseball games/practice, and also summer reading. I am now a freshman at Lesley University in Cambridge, Ma. I am studying Early Childhood Education with a specialization in Sepcial Education and I am now a student teacher for a third and fourth grade class at a local elementary school in Cambridge. I have also just become apart of a Assocation and I now work with a second grade girl once a week. I act as a mentor to her while we play games, do arts and crafts, and talk about our week. I enjoy working with children and it is something that I have aspired to do since I was a child.
