Melissa S. - Seeking Work in Cornish

11.42 / hour

I have over 7 years of babysitting/nannying experience with kids from ages 8 months to 12 years old. I was responsible for supervising the kids, meal prep, light housework (laundry, organizing, vacuuming, etc.), planning fun activities, occasionally driving them to extracurriculars, and caring for pets if there were any. Also, I've worked with kids in school settings in grades K-12. Much of my in-classroom experience includes supervising, coordinating and guiding activities, helping with homework/classwork, and for three months I taught English in a private school in Mexico. As an EFL teacher in Merida, Mexico I specifically taught English to students grades 7-12. I coordinated activities focused in crafts, dramatic arts, dance, sports, team-building and many more yet all allowing the students to practice their language skills. Additionally I have worked closely with kids and their families through the Make A Wish Foundation both as an office aid and wish granter volunteer.
