I have been working in preschools for the past six years and love working with children. I started in a center when I was high school as an after school and summer job. I was an assistant teacher and would work throughout all of the rooms. I love working with all different ages. I would also often work as an one on one aid with some of the special needs children in the school. When this center closed, I started at another preschool as a teachers aid and have been there for the past four years. During the following two summers, I worked as a group leader for a group of school age children, and earned my EEC teaching certification. In addition to that, I work there as a teacher during the school year part time when my class schedule allows. I have a lot of experience with all of the age groups. I have also nannied for the past two summers. This included scheduling lessons, planning activities, transportation, meal prep, errands and light housework.
