I have babysat ever since I was 12 years old. Jobs started out few and in between as a babysitter at that age, but as I grew older, I began to realize how much of a passion I was beginning to develop for kids. I soon became a summer camp counselor and did that for 4 consecutive summers. During two summer in college, I became a soccer coach, traveling around the U.S. coaching kids from the ages of 4-14. Traveling around to different states was awesome, but I was sad when I had to leave the kids I was creating relationships with. I am an elementary education major and currently finishing up student teaching 4th grade. I am loving it! I love interacting with kids and impacting them in special ways.
