Malia R. - Seeking Work in Longview

15.00 / hour
2 yrs of experience

Hello, my name is Malia.

Working with children is my passion! In fact, I am currently attending LeTourneau University for this sole purpose of being able to work with children in the Counseling field for the rest of my life.

Growing up in a family of five children from various parts of the world (we're all adopted from Haiti, South Korea, Pakistan, and USA), I have to say that I got my love from babysitting from that experience. I am the oldest and therefore was the one who would be doing babysitting whenever my parents needed to step out of the house.

During all of these big sister baby sitting sessions, I also worked for this big family of 8, where some of their children were also adopted for 2 whole years.

Their children ranged from twins of 14 years old, to a 10 year old boy, to a 7 year old, twin 3 year old girls (not biologically - but the same age), and 1 year old boy. Needless to say, I had my hand happily full with the Kenisons!
Loved working for them.

I have also worked for this school, Living Waters Christian School, for a year. I was a preschool teacher there. I did duties ranging from teaching alphabets, to simple math, to potty training, and taking care of new born in the nursery. ALSO LOVED that job! Those babies were super adorable.

Why am I not still working for those places anymore? Sadly (but also excitingly due to what is happening right now) I've moved since then. As stated previously, I am attending LeTourneau University where I strive to get a Master's in Counseling Psychology so that I can then concentrate my studying to my first love, Children!

I wish to be a counselor for children and their parents. Navigating those few precious years of a child's life is crucial for a wholesome and complete adult individual who will make positive impact in this world. Sometimes parents find themselves at lost as the wake up one morning to a completely different "child" then the one that went to bed.

Some lose hope and allow those trying times to influence their relationships with their children in a negative way. It does not have to be that way. It's all about knowing what is really happening on each stage of a child's development and knowing how to approach each one of those phases as a parent.

My future job is to help parents learn how to navigate those conversations that are crucial for the family dynamic to thrive and be a holistic process.

I look forward to working for you and your family. Cannot wait to meet your delightful children!

I sometimes watch kids for my friends, family and church family and am elated for an opportunity to do more childcare.
