Full-time hours

I have been working with young children since I was 14 years old working as a mother's helper. I knew from an early age that teaching and guiding children was, and would be, my passion. I graduated from Bridgewater State with a degree in Early Childhood Education and English. I continued my studies and will shortly receive my graduate degree in Literacy and Language. I have had many years caring for children. For two years I was a nanny for a family with two young boys. Daily fun/ engaging activities, meal prep and transportation were part of the job. I was also a nanny for a family with two teenage children. This consisted of homework help, emotional support, household chores and daily errands. In 2012 I began my teaching career as a paraprofessional in grade 2 and grade 3 classroom. Most recently, for the past two years, I have been a kindergarten teacher of 21 students. I collaborated with colleagues and families to ensure student success.
