I began babysitting when I was about twelve years old. I have taken care of newborns, infants, as well as children all the way up to the age of 24, several of whom were special needs. I taught religious education classes for 12 years, a pre-school class while in high school for 3 years, and was a Group Leader at my local township's Board of Education for the Before and After School Program for approximately 6 years. In addition, I worked with a little girl with a muscular disorder for roughly 2 years, I also worked with a 24 year old autistic man for several years helping him retain life skills for day to day living. For almost three years, I worked for a family whose youngest daughter was born with CDH (Congenital diaphragmatic hernia) which was accompanied by a slue of medical problems. She required a special diet, several special medications, and overall tender care. Last summer, while the children I nanny for now, were spending their summer vacation with their mother, I had the privilege of attending the Special Olympics Day Camp with another autistic young man. I was his aide, and would guide him to interact with other students, as well as learn the rules for whichever activity they were learning that wek.
