Dayna G. - Seeking Work in Oakton

11.42 / hour

Starting at the age of 15 I would 4 to 5 days a week volunteer at an orphanage about 30 minutes from where I lived in Mexico. I was home schooled so I lived at the orphanage most of the week. I would watch after the girls and boys. Read to them, play with them. I loved them ad my own even though some were just a few years younger. Also during that time I worked in the nursery at my church and babysat at times. After moving out of Mexico and back to where I was from in the states I still did lots of nursery work and also lived with a couple and helped take care of their two kids ages 3 and 2. I wasn't a nanny I lived with them and when the wife was busy I would watch the boys or when I got home from work I would play with them, feed them and put them to bed.

I started working with children at the age of 13, by doing some babysitting in my neighborhood. At 15.5 years old I began working at the kids club in Regency Sport and Health. I recently finished working with a family I worked for over a year. Unfortunately they moved out of state.

I speak both Spanish and English. I love outdoor activities (walks, parks, etc.), arts and crafts. When I’m not with a family you can find me at my other job as a caregiver or at a park reading a book!
