Dallas S. - Seeking Work in Cedar Lake

Hourly rate11.42 / hour

Hello! My name is Dallas Swan. I am currently a junior in college studying Elementary Education with minors in Reading and Child Development. My passions include music, playing games, and being active. I do have my own car and a clean driving record. If wanted, I could provide you with a copy of my driving record. I have been living on my own at college, so I am comfortable in the kitchen cooking meals, as well as running errands and cleaning up. I grew up always having a dog as well as other various pets throughout the years, so I am comfortable around animals. I am CPR/First Aid certified for Infants, Children, and Adults. I was the nanny for a six month old boy my freshmen year of high school, and since then all of my jobs have involved working with children. I worked as a summer camp counselor and Sports Camp director for a local Rec Center for four years. Most recently, I was the director for xx Summer Camp for children aged 6-12. This job entailed planning activities, handling registration, preparing snacks, and overseeing discipline and medication matters. I would love the opportunity to speak with you more about this position and to give you the chance to get to know me better, and if all goes well, the opportunity to work for you and your family.
