1 yrs of experience

My name is McKenna Kolesar. I am 21 years old and a senior at Radford University. In May 2018, I will be graduating with a BS in Psychology with a minor in Business Administration. I have always had a passion for working with kids. I began babysitting when I was 12 years old. For 2 years in high school, I was a full-time nanny for a toddler, who suffered from Cystic Fibrosis, and his older brother during the summer months. While in high school, I also attended the Chesterfield Technical Center, where I worked in a Kindergarten class at the elementary school as a teacher's assistant. The class I assisted in was an inclusion class setting, which means that some of the children in the class were special needs. Upon the completion of this program, I became certified to assist in teaching children Pre-K through 5th grade. Last summer, I was also a full-time nanny to a 6 month old little girl.
