I graduated from Southwest Baptist University with a bachelor's degree in Children's Ministry in May 2008. For this major, I did several field experiences with children ages 4 months to 6 years old. During one of these practicums I cared for up to 8 infants and toddlers for three hours a week while their mothers participated in a Bible study. During another, I helped teach a children's mission class on Wednesday nights. I also have worked at two summer day cares with ages 5 to 12 years of age. During these summers, I, along with other teachers, led the students in Bible studies, crafts, music, and recreation activities. I also had to supervise up to 15 children on my own while at the day care sites and also on field trips. I also became the director of one of these facilities. For this position, I planned all the activities, managed the budget and accounts receivable, supervised the teachers and substitutes, as well as handled all the major discipline issues. I have also worked at a daycare facility in Dallas, TX where I was the lead mobile infant teacher. The children in my room ranged from 7 to 15 months, who were crawling and walking. Presently, I work as a nanny for a family with twin girls. I have been with this family since the girls were 3 months and they are now almost 3 years old. In addition to these experiences, my sister has 5 children (1, 4, 6, 7, and 10), and on several occasions I have babysat her children for long periods of time and overnight.
