I began working with children by volunteering at my church at the age of 11, at which time I also began babysitting. In the summer of 2008, I began working at my xx as a camp counselor and have worked there every summer since. I worked with 10 kids, ages 6 to 17, so I am comfortable working with multiple children. In the fall of 2010, I worked as a tutor/mentor for the local school district's program for 7th to 12th graders, so I have experience with older kids as well. I spent May to November 2012 working at a special needs camp in Texas for ages 6 years and up (our oldest I believe was 89 years). There, I began as an activity director where I lived and worked in a cabin as well as planned and implemented lessons for my activity area. I then progressed in the fall season to the camp photographer position which also includes "support staff" responsibilities. In the winter of 2012/2013, I worked at a resort daycare in Colorado where I spent 4 months running a classroom - most often the 3 year to 6 year age group but also worked in the infant room and toddler rooms occasionally. While attending Baylor University (2007-2010), I took 6 credit hours (two courses) in RLS (recreation, leisure services); specifically, Outdoor Adventure Activities my first semester and Wilderness Leadership my second semester. Camping, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, spelunking, mountain biking, road biking, etc. were all a part of those programs. I have worked as a supervisor at a girl scout camp (summer 2013) and love to go camping as regularly as possible. I substitute taught in classrooms in western Texas September 2013-Feb. 2014. I have also worked at a xx.
