Child care is what I have been doing in one way or another for over 10 years. It started in high school taking the infant and toddler class, which provides day care to students and teachers. Babysitting for many teachers most days after school and weekends. I spent 5 summers working at a summer camp. My group of kids were kids going into kindergarten up to 3rd grade. My last year at summer camp I had kids 3rd - 5th grade. From there I went to Boston for a year of school and babysat a girl age 3 two afternoons a week. When I came back home to Maine I was a substitute teacher for half a year subbing. The following year I had an one year position as an ed tech in a life skills special education class.
