When I was 15 years old, I began investing in the future by working with children. My first experience was working in a church nursery with babies from newborn to 24 months old. I have also worked with multiple groups of underprivileged children for three years, as well as special needs and mentally handicapped children for 2 1/2 years. A job that I thoroughly enjoyed was working at a daycare with 12-month-old - 24-month-old toddlers, where I worked for a year. I was a head junior church teacher to a group of 4-year-old to 12-year-old children from 2011-2013. I was also a nanny to a wonderful family with a 6-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl from August 2014 to March 2015. I also worked for a lovely family with 4 children, 1 of them being a special needs child.
