Melody E. - Seeking Work in Kearneysville

11.42 / hour
Full-time hours

A 32-year-old mommy of a 4 and 6-year-old and 11 years as an elementary school teacher have given me the tools to teach, grow, and love kids while having fun doing it! I love fun... enjoying trips to the park, walks, bike rides ( even with my baby seat behind me ), singing, crafts, laughing, reading, trips to the library, and just enjoying being silly together! I also love structure, enjoy reading to kids, and teaching children even through day to day activities. I would love to take that energy and use it to benefit small children who simply need a happy, caring, safe, and educational environment in their earlier phases of life! I would love to provide that pet free, smoke free, extremely clean, safe, fun, and even educational atmosphere for your child while making them laugh, giggle, and learn! Years as a camp counselor, church nursery worker, babysitter, teacher, tutor, coach, among other things give me skills to work with many types and age children to their benefit!
