Sarah  A. - Seeking Work in Orland

11.42 / hour

I currently am finishing my time with a nursery at a church where I took care of 6 children regularly and also took care of any surprise visitors. Services were anywhere from an hour to almost three hours each Wednesday and Sunday night. I would prepare lessons for the kids; I would develop my own crafts and games for the kids to participate in; I would manage behavioral issues with the students; I also developed a positive reinforcement system for the kids to follow. Not only did I perform these daily duties, but I built fond relationships with my kids. I also worked at a camp for the past two summers. I worked specifically with high school students, but we were a service team, which means we worked with all areas of camp. I worked with many students with special needs during this time as well, and these summers are some of my fondest summers. I love my kids very much and still keep in contact with them. I am also an English Education major and have worked with many middle school and high school students. I have also worked with a Christian youth organization and worked with many middle school students after school, building relationships with them. I also have done some babysitting for multiple different families, especially while in college.
