My favorite job was working in an elementary school for three years. I interacted with the kids in both a one-on-one, small group, and entire classroom setting. In addition to facilitating reading, writing, math, phonics, lunch and recess, I enjoyed teaching them about social norms and how to treat others. I also spent time working one-on-one with a child who has special needs. In addition, I have experience working in a daycare.

When I was 13 years old I became a certified babysitter and have been babysitting ever since. I have sat for a family with a little girl since she was three and have been sitting for her ever since. She is now 11. Also when I was 13 (I am now 22) I have been caring for my younger sister. Since she was three months old I would watcher her everyday after school from 3 to 530 and even when my parents came home I would continue to care for her.
