I grew up in a slightly large family filled with kids. I have a handful of cousins, half of whom are younger than me. I've babysat each of them at least once and more than one of them at a time. I have a brother who is 8 years younger than me and who is also my best friend. I grew up helping out with him and watching over him. I had a neighbor who had three children whom I cared for. They ranged in ages from newborn to 10 when I cared for them. During my high school career I attended a vo-tech school and my area of study was early childhood education. I did this all 4 years of high school. After high school, I was hired at a preschool agency by the name of Cen-Clear Child Services. I worked there for 4 years as a para-educator. My daily duties ranged from getting the child off of the bus, to making sure that the child was ready for daily activities and routines. At the end of the day it was also part of my job to fill out paperwork on the days activities. I currently work in retail and one day out of the week I watch a friends two girls while she works. She has two girls, 7 and 5.
