I started babysitting when I was in high school for many families in my town. Sometimes it was just for a few hours and other times I spent the weekend with the kids and drove them to activites and cooked meals for them ect. I am an art teacher and have worked with all ages of students. I nannyed for a family one summer with a boy with autism and a daughter, I really enjoyed spending time with them. I also tutored the daughter in english/language arts.

A career path I am considering is teaching (per the human development major), and I am passionate about working with kids. I have had professional experience, working in the restaurant business as well as interning in the corporate world. I can provide references if needed.
