I have been taking care of children for as long as I was given the chance to. I have two younger sisters, 15 and 10, which I basically raised due to both of my parents working full time. I have dedicatedly babysat since I was 10 with jobs from a few hours at night to every day after school for over 20 different families. I have taken an American Red Cross Babysitter Certification program as well from which I received a babysitting license. When I was 12 I worked as a counselor at a summer camp for a group of 15-30 children (depending on the week) between the ages of 3-6. At 16 I worked at a summer camp for children ages 3-12 with special needs such as autism, down syndrome, rett syndrome, ADHD, apraxia, etc. At 17 I volunteered at an after school program for 6th graders to guide them through individual and team confidence building activities to prepare them for the change to middle school.

I began a babysitting at the age of 12. Through my experience as a babysitter I've cared for children between the ages of newborn to twelve. In addition to this experience, I have the experience of working with various special needs children. At my current job, I work at an elementary school in Fairfield, Connecticut. My job title is a special education paraprofessional. One of my key responsibilities as a paraprofessional is primarily working one-on-one with three special needs students. These three students range from autism to medical impairments. Other additional experience included working as a direct care counselor in residential homes for special needs children. The ages of the children ranged from 5-20. Most of the children in the homes have moderate to severe medical/health impairments. The responsibilities of this particular job were but not limited to feeding, changing and bathing the children; preparing and cooking food; grocery shopping,laundry and bringing the children out on outings.

I took care of children with autism also. Being a preschool teacher,it gives me great experience on this age group: 2 to 5 years old. School age children are fine also. I like pets and don't mind caring for them too. I keep my cpr/first aid updated and have the best references.
