Hi! Thank you for taking the time to review my page! I have worked with children my whole life. My mother has always watched children in our home and I feel extremely comfortable working with children of all ages. I also worked in a daycare for 3 years and a personal nanny, so I am great with groups of children as well as multi-tasking. I also worked as an activities coordinator in a few resorts which invovled running activities with groups of children such a beach games/sports, pool games, arts and crafts and so on. I have a bachelors in Family and Consumer Scieneces with a concentration in Hospitality Management and a minor in Business Administration. I also studied Elementary Education for 2 years in college. I moved back to Illinois from Florida and am in the process of changing my career. In college, I did complete in a CPR course but I believe the licence only lasts a year. I am also extremely pet friendly and have a dog of my own, I do not mind taking care of animals along with the children! Overall I am a extremely positive person, friendly, outgoing, loving, caring and I absolutely love working with children and they love working with me! Feel free to contact me with any questions! I have plenty of references so please feel free to ask. Currently I am looking for a summer job but I would be willing to stay with a family long term as well.
