I am a stay-at-home mother of two: 2 yr old daughter and 6 yr old son. During high school, I assisted as a voluntary teacher's aid at xx. I was responsible for helping the preschool teacher design curriculum to teach the children (infant-4 years) as well as create fun ways to keep the children's attention focused on learning in a positive environment. I also took part in the Older/Younger Program which allowed me to work with 5 & 6 year olds 3 times a week for a year. I was responsible for teaching them the basics of reading, writing, math, and proper classroom behavior. I worked with 2 children as opposed to just one which was the requirement for the class. We took the children on field trips and outings to places like the Children's Museum in Portland and the fire station in Battle Ground. I have also provided babysitting services to friends and family members since I was 8 years old.
