I started out working at a daycare in the infant room when I was 18 years old. From age 18-21 I attended Duquesne University for 1 year and Marywood University for 3 semesters. My field of study was Early Childhood & Special Education. During that time I spent time teaching and working with children in Head Start, Montessori, early intervention and at a school focused on children with dyslexia. I have not received a degree in education but I do plan on re enrolling to finish my degree. I did continue college but switched majors to Petroleum and Natural Gas in which I obtained 2 associate degrees. I spent 2 years out in the pipeline industry before giving it up to return to my true passion of childcare. I recently worked at a daycare in the toddler room where another teacher and I were in charge of ten 1-2 year olds everyday. During this time tasks such as feeding, diaper changes, nap preparation, writing and implementation of age appropriate lesson plans, and caring for the safety and development of the children were worked on daily. However I wish to work more one on one with an individual or smaller group of children which is where my interest in being nanny stems from.
