Children have been an extensive part of my life for almost 10 years now. When I was younger, I would volunteer in the nursery and at children's church on Sundays at a church in Rockwall, TX. Over the years, I have babysat for multiple families as well as for my own family. The most recent work which I have done was at the xx, I was with them for 6 years. I was the aquatics program coordinator for swim lessons. This job had me taking on multiple roles.
