I have extensive experience caring for children between the ages of 0-13. Here's some information you might want to know about me and my qualifications: * A passion for youth. My experience includes over 10 years of caring for children of all ages from newborn through junior high. In addition to caring for children one-on-one, I have also helped organize an lead several community children's programs. I have taught four introductory Spanish classes covering grades 3 through high school. I am also a social dancer and have had a few opportunities to teach teenagers various forms of swing dancing. Currently, and for the last three years, I am involved with mentoring through Big Brothers Big Sisters and help out with the children's program at a church in Springfield. In my current job, I am a GED Instructor/Case Manager where I help teen parents get their GED. * Creativity. I believe children should have fun and explore their imagination. I am a huge advocate for outdoor activities when appropriate. My methods are fun, hands-on, and I am not afraid to get on the floor and play games or make up activities (I even bring my own!). Some of my past exploits with various ages have included making forts and pirate ships out of blankets and furniture; making homemade play dough; creating musical instruments out of coffee cans; enjoying musical fun with my personal collection of shakers and hand drums; acting out stories; and using flash cards along with playing simple games to encourage learning colors, numbers, and words (for the younger children). I am an avid reader with a large collection of children's books (over 500), so i always try to slip in the fun of reading whenever possible. I also love animals which means pets are no problem at all. Despite my many experiences, I consider my greatest creative achievement to be mastering the game of pretend. Through one-on-one child care, I have learned to travel to enchanted forests, storm castles, sink pirate ships, free the princess, and find the buried treasure. * Responsible adult, reliable transportation *Competent swimming supervisor. *Willing to become CPR certified
