I am a recent graduate of Plymouth State University with a Bachelors degree in childhood studies with an option of teacher certification k-8. I recently began working in an elementary school.I have a true passion for working with children of all different ages. Past employers have included multi task job descriptions. I have cared for children as young as six months to as old as 13 years. With dog caring, house sitting, organization, cleaning, homework, cooking, scheduling, and car pooling included, I have been in charge of continual supervision on airline flights, family gatherings, skiing trips and vacation getaways. I have had an array of experience to enhance my experience for working with kids. For the last three summers I have been employed at Top Flight Sports Center as a camp counselor. Each day I work with 30-60 children between the ages of 5 and 13. This camp allows me to help create a comfortable environment for children as their parents are at work. I am an extremely caring, flexible and dependable person.
