I have been a Vacation Bible School instructor for the past few years dealing with 1st graders. I have also been an xx Coach for co-ed kindergarteners. I spent multiple summers helping coach the younger children on my swim team and absolutely loved it! My mother has been teacher for the past 20 years and I have frequently sat in her classes with her, playing and teaching children from preschool to elementary school. I love children and have always wanted to be a teacher. After I graduate with my Bachelors of Art History, I am planning to get my Masters of Elementary Education. I enjoy doing active things with children and have played sports my entire life. I also love art and enjoy arts and crafts. I am CPR and First Aid certified and am willing to prepare meals and perform housework. I was a full-time nanny last summer for 2 children and absolutely loved it!
