Carly M. - Seeking Work in Vail

11.22 / hour

I am 24 years old with a degree in Elementary Education. Throughout high school I babysat for a number of families of all ages. When I began college I also began working at a daycare that provides care for 100+ children a day. In my 4 years there I have worked with every age and have gone through required childcare, first aid, CPR and other training courses. After I graduated from college I began substitute teaching and have had a lot of hands-on experience in classrooms. Following that, I was a co-teacher in the school-age classroom at the daycare and got to plan and execute daily field trips for the students that provided an educational and fun experience. After moving to Colorado 2 years ago, I began nannying and nannied for a family for a year. I maintain a friendship with the family but have moved on to work in an elementary school, specifically with a child who has a behavior disorder. Between the daycare and the school setting I have had a substantial amount of experience with children.

During the summers I have worked at a camp for teenagers in Wyoming for the past 7 years, which involves working and interacting with them on a daily basis as well as living in a cabin with them. I have enjoyed doing this very much and if I could do it for the rest of my life I most certainly would. I have also babysat for different families on and off from the time I could drive until now.
