My favorite job was working in an elementary school for three years. I interacted with the kids in both a one-on-one, small group, and entire classroom setting. In addition to facilitating reading, writing, math, phonics, lunch and recess, I enjoyed teaching them about social norms and how to treat others. I also spent time working one-on-one with a child who has special needs. In addition, I have experience working in a daycare.
