Rebekah M. - Seeking Work in Volga

I began caring for children on my own at the age of twelve. I had helped my older sister care for children prior to that beginning at the age of nine. I have cared for children ages infant through age 10 throughout my child care experiences. Throughout my many jobs I have cared for twins, a young boy with behavioral issues, sisters who are 13 months apart in age beginning when the older was 3 months old and began caring for the two of them, when the 2nd was 6 weeks old. Last summer I was a nanny for three children, ages 2, 5 & 7, in Sioux Falls, SD. I was responsible for their care for 8-10 hours a day. I drove the children to swimming lessons and other activities. We spent many hours playing in the local park. I also enjoyed doing crafts with the children, that I had arranged on my own. I prepared two meals a day, while keeping one of the children protected from his peanut and diary allergies. I maintained a 3.5 GPA throughout high school white keeping a very active extra-curricular schedule. I have been admitted to Black Hills State University as an Honors Student. I will be pursuing a degree in nursing or accounting.
