Rachel R. - Seeking Work in Lytle

20.00 / hour
Full-time hours

Hello, My name is Rachel and I have been taking care of children of various ages in various settings my whole life. I grew up in a family of eight children, three of my brother's grew up with autism and aspergers syndrome. I would assist in caring for and babysitting my siblings on a regular basis which would include meal prep, cleaning, and other daily activities as needed. In addition to helping with taking care of my siblings I also began a part-time job taking care of children ages 3 months to 2 years in a daycare as a young teen. My job was to look after the children and feed them, clean up after them, play with them, and put them down for naps. After that, I began taking short babysitting jobs and I started to help out in my church's nursery each Sunday on and off for several years, looking after toddlers. I was also a teacher for the 3 year old Sunday school class for about a year where I taught a pair of lovely twin girls. At the start of 2014, I was a substitute teacher for a short while before finding another job. I taught pre-k to 5th grade and got along really well with each age group. Taking care of young children has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and although my professional experience primarily lies with the infant-3 years old age group, I have had the opportunity to take care of children of several ages throughout the year.
