Eliza C. - Seeking Work in Ocean City

I am 25 years old with lots of childcare experience. In high school I worked at a Daycare where I divided most of my time between the nursery (working with infants), the three-year-old room, and the school-aged room. I graduated early from Salisbury University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Spanish; there I worked primarily in Kindergarten classrooms in local Elementary Schools. I ultimately did half of my student teaching in a Kindergarten class, and half in a First Grade class in the Virgin Islands (yes, it was amazing!). After Graduation I worked for a short time for a family with three children, ages 2, 4, and 6, as well a daycare at which I co-taught a class of two-year-olds. For the past three years, though, I have cared for two boys, now 6 and 7, on a full time basis. In addition, this past year I have worked part time at their school as a member of the before care staff, and a substitute teacher.
