Most recently, my experience with children was through my position for a Montessori School. A weekly creative arts enrichment program was both planned and implemented by myself through 9 classes each day, which catered to children ranging in age from 18 months-6 years (Kindergarten). Classes taught were Art & Art History, Yoga & Meditation, American Sign Language (basic), Interpretive Dance, Cooking, and Interactive Story Acting. Previous to that position, I was a nanny for a family with three children, ages 2, 4 and 5 years. My responsibilities included engaging with the children in creative and educational indoor activities, outdoor play, preparing meals (breakfast, lunch and a snack), laundering the children's clothing (and occasionally the parents' clothing as well) and very light housekeeping. I also cared for a family member's child on my weekends from the time he was 6 weeks old through his first birthday.
