I have been an elementary school teacher for three years, worked in a pre-school for almost a year, and have worked with infants and toddlers for almost 7 years in a church nursery on Sundays. I just graduated from Columbia with a Masters in Social Work. I graduated from undergraduate with a major in History, and a double minor in Education, and Psychology.
I have babysat infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary aged children for over 10 years. I am responsible for taking care of their physical needs, including changing diapers, playing with them, as well as preparing snacks and meals. I love to get on the floor and play, as I am not a person who just sticks kids in front of the TV. I have helped with play dates, pick-up and drop-off at school, transported kids using the subway and bus, as well as taken kids to the park. I have also worked in an after school and summer camp for a little over 3 years, working with students in K-5. I taught swimming, tennis, and created art and craft activities for the campers. I am a very energetic person, and I am great with kids. I play tennis, and I am an excellent swimmer.
Also, I have my CPR and First Aid certification, as well as Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor (WSI) certifications. I enjoy working with children of all ages. I have references available on request. I have my NC Teaching License for grades K-12. I also have my Basic School Age Care (BSAC) certification, as well as my Gifted Education certification. I have my Infant, Child, and Adult First Aid and CPR certifications. I am a certified Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor (WSI) also.
