I graduated from college with my degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have babysat since I was in junior high school. I nannied for a family with 3 children (1 toddler, preschooler with special needs, and an upper elementary age child). During two (2) of my college summer breaks, I created and directed a summer kids camp at my church. During another summer break, I helped a family homeschool their children. They follow an all-year school calendar, and the mother was starting to work part-time, out of the home. She needed some extra help with their schooling. These are just a few of the many wonderful experiences I have had working with children.
