Throughout highschool I babysat multiple times a week for families with one to eight children. I graduated with honors with a degree in Elementary Education in 2005. I spent several months working in after school care and daycare teacher positions. I taught in a school for four years as the 2nd grade teacher for the first year and 5th grade teacher for the other three years. I was then a nanny for two years for a family with three wonderful children. The children were 1, 9, and 12 when I started with them and 3, 11, and 14 when I left. I have also volunteered for many different types of child care positions in church and my neighborhood.
