Natalie C. - Seeking Work in Farmville

14.28 / hour

Since a young age I've been around and helping to care for younger children. While in middle school my mother began teaching and would often use the afternoons for parent meetings, leaving me to help out in the Pre-K/Kindergarten after school care programs. I officially began by caring for the children of close family friends (ages 6 to 9) whom I knew quite well and would be comfortable with. Around high school, I became my neighborhood go-to for babysitting, including children of all age ranges from 2 to 11, including one with autism. I believe that it was all this exposure to and love of interacting with children that led me to change my major to Elementary Education while in college. I am currently in my last semester of college, finishing up my student teaching. Currently, I am placed in a Pre-K 4-year-old classroom but was in a 6th grade classroom just a few weeks ago. I am quite confident and capable of interacting with children of all personalities and ages.
