I have spent the past four years teaching preschool in Austin Texas. I worked in every classroom at my center and spent a majority of the time as the lead teacher of the toddler room. As a lead of my classroom I was in charge of every childs day to day well being, helping them reach social and emotional goals, as well as physical goals. I loved implementing music and art activities into my lesson plans and really making learning fun! Before that I worked as a nanny part time for a family of three in Colleyville Texas as well as an after school site aide for the xx. I've been babysitting for on and off for ten years and have a large family.
