I am a junior college student at James Madison University looking for summer job and I have a very flexible schedule! My major is teaching with a focus in special education. During my childcare/role modeling experience I drove the children, one 6th grader and one 9th grader, to their practices and games for their sports after school. I picked up the house upon request of the guardians. On occasion when the parents worked late, I would prepare meals for them. I also helped them with their homework while I did mine. I also did laundry and cleaned the house. I loved to be around them all of them time and be there for them when they need advice. I also love to do things outdoors and I am always up to play games and do crafts! I am always up for adventures, going to the pool, or just hanging out when the kids want. This past year I also was a tutor and companion for a 5th grader with aspergers syndrome. We would do various arts and crafts and played outside every chance we could. I taught him various social and life skills. I am CPR & First Aid Red Cross Certified.
