Courtney C. - Seeking Work in North Topsail Island

11.42 / hour

I am the oldest of four children so have been helping out with kids since I was able to change a diaper. I also have cousins ranging from different ages and have been helping out with them as long as I can remember. I had my first babysitting experience with pay at the the age of twelve and I am now twenty-two so have had many years of experience with children. I have worked and helped with children ranging from infants all the way to adults with disabilities. I have also worked with children that have disabilities or just behavior problems. Kids are all unique and some have their own different way of being dealt with that and I understand that each child is very fragile and should be treated all equal but at times shown different types of attention. I have helped children with homework, just been a person to keep them busy and occupied with things that interest them, have done the cooking and cleaning before, and children with disabilities we set goals for them to accomplish on their own to feel as though they can succeed on their own. Kids are my passion and the reason I am going to college.
