Maria  H. - Seeking Work in Plano

10.00 / hour
< 1 yr of experience

My name is Maria, and I enjoy taking care of children! I am currently attending Aurora University and my majors are Psychology and Criminal Justice. Since I am a full-time student I am available Tuesdays, Thursdays, weekends, and all summer long (May 3rd to August 20th). However, classes do tend to turn into work days towards the end of the semester, so I could possibly be able more days of the week. It would just be a manner of talking through it. As for my experience in high school I was a part of Educators Rising and volunteered to help kids (ages 5-7) in the district with their reading skills.
I was also a CCD teachers assistant for two years, for the age groups of 6 through 12. And I am currently a CCD teacher of 34 incredible second graders. I enjoy playing outdoors, swimming, doing arts & crafts, playing instruments, practicing language(s), helping with homework, and reading with kids. The main reason I enjoy taking care of kids, is when I was little and had to be taken care of my babysitter was amazing. She always took us to parks, the library, practices, and would show us new things as well. She was transparent and I never had to guess what she needed my behavior to be like. Even though she was fun, she was also strict, but it was all in a healthy balance and I believe is what kept me feeling safe and loved by her. However, when I was old enough I started taking care of my siblings; my mother could not offered to pay for a caregiver anymore. There ages when I started taking care of them where 2, 5, and 7. My goal for whenever I am responsible for kids is making sure they have fun, feel comfortable/safe, and that they make memorable memories. I do take whatever the child says and asks seriously, and most of all I love getting to know a child's personality. To me taking care of kids is not just a job but an adventure, there's never a dull moment!
