Alissa W. - Seeking Work in Purcellville

8.57 / hour

I am a down-to-earth Mother of a wonderful 4-year-old boy and have recently moved to Purcellville from Fairfax County. I am looking for some part-time work for after-school care, M-F, 3-6PM (consider time before 3 if needed i.e. pick up from school etc..). I have a Masters Degree in Education Counseling from Virginia Tech (undergraduate degree in Social Work) and have 8 years of experience working as a Professional School Counselor at Bryant Alternative High School in Alexandria, VA. Prior to that, I worked for Fairfax County Government, Department of Family Services as a Youth Specialist/Case Manager for Workforce Programs. Most recently, I took care of twin 6-year-olds (boy and girl) for after school care, including pickup/dropoffs. Ideally, I would like an opportunity to care for a child/children in a setting where I can also look after my own son (he currently attends preschool in the mornings). I have a real passion for working with/caring for children and young people as proven by my education and work experience. Education-wise, my personal model of counseling communicates to each student/child/youth that they are unique and talented individuals. Part of my profession is to help unlock their potential academically, career, and personal/socially. Mother-wise, our children (my son and fur-child, Franco the bulldog) are so special to us and want only the best for them; keeping them safe, healthy and loved.

In brief, I have been in the childcare field since I was 15 yrs. old as first a Counselor at the YMCA, then I received a Degree in Recreation which led me into programming for Childrens Programming for one of the largest Recreation Depts. in the nation. After 10 years, I opened my own state licensed daycare for infants to 12 yrs. of age for the next six years. Following this, I was offered a position as Supervisor for Before/After School Programs for the next 7 years. That led me into the field I am in today, Mental Health. I am currently self-employed as a therapist specializing working with children with autism. I also have worked part-time as a Nanny for families with children with special needs or on week-ends.

I have been nannying for the past two summers for a family of 2 (ages 3-5). I love working with kids and I always make sure they are active. For example, I love doing outdoor activities! I made all three meals for the children and put them down for naps. I can drive the children wherever they need to go: appointments, lessons, the park, the pool, etc.
