Mary S. - Seeking Work in Grapevine Southlake Surrounding

14.28 / hour

My interest in childcare began with my 3 sons, now fine grown men. Now my grandchildren keep me in shape! I love to research, study and learn what I am involved in. I studied childbirth, delivery and infancy development during my child bearing years. My desire to learn led me to become a newborn specialist and continue to study children with special needs. My research now goes up to age 13. As my sons grew up I worked my way into a Marketing position with a Fortune 500 Corp. and stayed with them over 15 years. I took an early buy out under unique circumstances and decided reach back to my love of children, holding 3 positions long term. I am a Texas State Lisc Respit Care Provider. This requires extensive courses in child care, safety, first aid, CPR, behavior management, vehicle insurance, safe drivers record and background checks. I will provide the agency registered with.
