Corina R. - Seeking Work in Burlington

14.28 / hour

I'm an educated, polylingual, child-adoring 32-year-old woman living in Burlington, Vermont with my husband and four cats (our surrogate children!). I have a couple decades of experience tutoring, providing social services to, volunteering with, and caring for children (including working as a baby-sitter and part-time nanny). I am seeking a somewhat flexible part-time nanny position to supplement my freelance tutoring work, my volunteer work with underprivileged children living in Burlington, Vermont, and my biannual volunteer work with children (two weeks in April and December). Some of my favorite activities to engage in with children (depending on age) are reading; making art (I am an 'advanced amateur' visual artist and photographer and enjoy cultivating creativity and self-expression in children); co-writing and co-illustrating stories; singing songs; playing age-appropriate board games, including but not limited to Scrabble, chess, checkers, Chinese checkers, Connect Four, and Parcheesi; playing outside (I don't mind getting dirty in 'mud season', and I have a very warm winter coat for inclement weather!); going for walks; going swimming in the summer; teaching foreign languages (I speak Russian and Spanish, and it's incredible how quickly and easily children can learn foreign languages!); helping with homework (yes, really!); baking cookies; organizing birthday parties and other events; facilitating play-dates--and many other activities. I value education greatly and endeavor to make every interaction a learning experience--often without the kids even knowing they're 'learning' (a word that doesn't always have fun connotations for children)! I received my bachelor's degree (summa cum laude) from Indiana University in 2005 and did graduate work at Columbia University (2008-2010). I am CPR and First Aid certified, and I have experience working with children with developmental/neurological/learning disabilities (including dyslexia, dyscalcula, autism spectrum disorders, Down's Syndrome/mental retardation, and cerebral palsy) as well as emotional or behavioral issues (including ADHD, conduct disorder, oppositional-defiant disorder, anger management problems, reactive attachment disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety and panic disorders, phobias, and depression).

I have over 8 years experience caring for children of all ages. I am a recent UVM graduate with a science degree in speech pathology and linguistics, with a concentration in child psychology. Through my time at the xx Center (an organization that provides services to disabled children and adults), as a personal care assistant, full time nanny and through my coursework in the communication sciences and disorders department at xx, I believe that I have really evolved the knowledge and skills it takes to be great caretaker for children. I also have previous experience as a camp counselor for two summers, and as a peer mentor for children at the Shelburne Community School. I have extensive experience with infants and toddlers, and with families of multiple children. I have experience in crisis/intervention training, tutoring, healthy cooking, and have qualified organizational skills. Most recently I was a full-time nanny for a two year old boy. My duties included meal preparation, light housekeeping, running errands, and creating a stimulating and engaging environment.

When I was 10 I started working at the church nursery with infants. I also helped care for family member's children. At 13 I began babysitting regularly, and continued through high school. During college, I was an after school nanny for two school aged children for over a year. I had a wonderful relationship with both children and their parents. For over two years I was also a Lead Research Assistant for a social study where I worked with middle school children. I received my Bachelors in Psychology with a minor in childhood development from The University of Texas at Dallas. The summer after I graduated, I worked for the DFW Center for Autism. I worked at the preschool as an individual therapist and group teacher after I received my fourth level certification in Applied Behavioral Analysis Therapy. The preschool was a mix of autistic and typically developing children. I also worked as a substitute teacher for a K-12 private school.

I have been working in a childcare center for two years now. This past year I have spent the majority of my time in the infant room caring for children from eight weeks old to one year old. Most recently, I have been covering the maternity leave in the one to two year old classroom. I began babysitting at 13 years old and was a summer nanny for a family with a ten year old for three years. When I began my college career to get a degree in Elementary Education, I continued to babysit. I also was working in schools as part of my student teaching requirement. I have planned and taught developmentally appropriate lessons from preschool to third grade. I enjoy planning hands on lessons that allow and encourage children to explore their surroundings.
