I love kids! I recently just graduated from high school and I have been looking for a summer job that I would enjoy. I played volleyball and soccer all 4 years of high school, so I like to be active! I will attending UTRGV in the fall of 2018 to major in biology and minor in chemistry because I plan to follow the path to one day becoming a physicians assistant. I am available 7 days a week at any time! I am fluent in English and I can understand Spanish, but I have a difficult time communicating it. Since I have a huge family with plenty of cousins, I babysit quite often so I’m very familiar with taking care of babies/ children, even kids with special needs is something that I am familiar with as well.
