Margo M. - Seeking Work in New Washington

8.57 / hour
Full-time hours

I often joke that I have been a babysitter since I was 8 years old. (I'm the oldest of 7 children.) I have cared for children who range in age from infants to 8 years old. I've worked with twins and children who are very close in age. I have also worked with children who need extra care. I have worked as a tutor and teacher's aide in a small private school. I worked closely with children in Pre-K through the third grade. As the care provider for after school care, I watched over the children who stayed at school until they were picked up by their parents--keeping upwards to 30 kids happy after a day of school was sometimes challenging. My goal each time I meet a child is for that child to be happy to see me again. I think children need to be held when they cry, to be fed when they're hungry, and to nap when they're tired. I relish the company of children and enjoy their views of life.
