Full-time hours

My past child care experience was various babysitting jobs within my church family and since I am the oldest of 9 (both parents working; 1 day shift and the other night shift) I was going to school full time, working part time on weekends, and during the week included pick up and drop offs to practices and games, making dinner, helping with homework, giving baths, laundry, and making sure they got to sleep at a decent time. In high school, I also was apart of Kiddie Campus which was an addition to my vocational experience and I had completed two internships working with a preschool class and a second grade class. My major at the time was Education my first 2 years of college and I switched to Psychology which is what I got my Associates in. I then, transferred to Western Illinois University and took some time off babysitting to focus on my studies and work full time. Now I am graduating this May with my Bachelor's in Psychology and double minor in Law Enforcement and Sociology.
