I am an experienced child care provider who has a degree in Early Childhood and Childhood Education. My experiences with children cover a wide array of setting and populations. I have worked as a babysitter, camp counselor and was employed as a full-time live-out nanny to a family of three children (ages 4-6). This was a wonderful experience that I loved; especially because I was able to form a strong and caring relationship with both parents and children. Following these experiences I graduated SUNY Cortland with honors and a Bachelor’s of Science. After graduating I accepted a position as the Lead Pre-K teacher at a private child care center. After an exciting year at this center I sought out an opportunity that would allow me to continue to grow as an educator and child care provider. In order to fulfill this desire I accepted a position in a residential living facility caring for children with disabilities, mental illness, and/or a history of trauma. This experience exposed me to a whole new side of child care and ignited my passion to learn more about mental health and how to help children burdened with mental health issues succeed in school. During this time I was offered a position as a Universal Pre-K teacher in one of xx Elementary Schools. I took on this role and continued working part time in the residential home. I applied to graduate school and was accepted into program that would allow me to incorporate my passion for education and psychology; as a School Psychologist. I left my position as xx teacher to pursue graduate school, and just finished my first semester. I am AED/First Aid Certified, Choking Prevention Certified, Medication Administration Certified, done Confidentiality Training,and many more.
