Courtney R. - Seeking Work in Topsfield

22.85 / hour

I have babysat for multiple families since I was about 13 years old. This includes infants, school age children, and preteens. The past two summers I have also worked at a summer camp in New Hampshire. This job included caring for children from ages 6 to 17. I worked as a day camp counselor the first year and a resident camp counselor the second year. Therefore, I have tons of experience with planning activities, cooking meals, playing games, doing arts and crafts, as well as putting children to bed. I am studying early childhood and elementary education at Hofstra University on Long Island. This gives me the chance to work with children in classrooms. I have had the chance to work with preschoolers through fourth grade. I also take many classes regarding child development, special education, child art and movement, as well as general education classes. In addition, I am CPR and First Aid certified with an impeccable driving record and my own car.
