I have always had a passion for working with children, evidenced by my job experience during the summers of 2014, 2013, and 2012 as a sleep-away camp counselor. During this time I worked closely with 10, 11, and 12-year-olds, however during the day I worked in the art room with children ranging from 7-14. This job required that I step into a surrogate parent role for these children 24/7, and as such I gained real life experience in childcare. Being a sleep-away camp counselor taught me how to command a child's respect while still having an awesome and fun time with them. Before entering Undergrad 4 years ago, I babysat for a family for 2 years with a young girl and boy. Before that I had sporadic babysitting jobs. Additionally, I just graduated in May and I'm going on to Graduate School to receive my Master's in Childhood Special and General Education so I can follow my love of teaching. This past year, I had a 2 month full-time internship as a teacher's assistant in a 2nd grade classroom where I was able to establish close bonds with the children and give them the attention and dedication they deserved while at school away from their parents.
