Caring for children is something that has always just come natural for me. It's something that I truly enjoy doing. I've worked as a preschool teacher for three years. I've also worked in a daycare center as a teachers assistant for one year. Most recently I ran my own home daycare from home for ten years. All of these have been very rewarding, fun experiences for both myself and all of the families I've come to know.
