Sara S. - Seeking Work in Mill Spring

I have cared for children from the time I was a teenager, babysitting neighborhood children. At seventeen, I began working as a Direct Care Educator for children with severe developmental disabilities. I did this for over seven years, working with a child with Cerebral Palsy and Mental Retardation. I was responsible for providing extensive physical, educational, and recreational care: bathing, dressing, cooking, feeding, going on outings, working on individualized personal goals, and navigating serious behavioral difficulties. Five years ago, I moved into working with adults with mental and emotional disorders. After my time working with adults, I miss the joy and satisfaction that comes with spending time playing a meaningful part in children's lives. I have extensive experience with newborns and toddlers, sometimes one in each arm, and am comfortable caring for multiple children at a time.
