As a young teenager starting at the age of about 13 or 14 years of age I began babysitting for family friends as well as family members, and younger siblings. At the age of 14 I got my first job at an after school program in my town as an after school job taking care of children ranging from grades k-4th grade. At the age of 18 I got a job at a daycare working with children ages infants to 5th grade. I was at that daycare for 3 years. After leaving the daycare I became a nanny for summer vacation taking care of a school-age boy with Aspergers. When he went back to school I found a full-time position at a state hospital.
