Grace F. - Seeking Work in St. Charles

My family has always told me I work well with kids, I do love them, and I have helped close family members out by giving them a hand on multiple occasions with their own kids, or even local daycare centers from homes. I used to only help out when I had the chance, but now I would like to make it my primary occupation. I love kids, and I used to dream of being a teacher so I would love to help out with homework if need be. I'm good with communication, I work well with others, and I follow instructions nicely. I have always been told I grew up so fast due to my level of responsibility that I know I can handle, and I would be happy to help shoulder any of your own.
