I'm a recent graduate from Ashland University with a bachelors degree in Child and Family Studies. Last summer I had an internship at a foster care agency. This was a great experience and I really enjoyed being able to work kids from diverse backgrounds. I babysat for a family while I was in High School who had two elementary age children. I babysit for my cousins, they are 2 and 4. I also recently joined a local after school tutoring program.
