I love children. I am also looking for something new and challlenging! I would love the experience of being apart of someones development. Teaching children while the are young the correct manners as well as life skills and goals should be an essential part of any family. I understand that a lot of parents these days have their own careers and have families and sometimes it's just a bit much to juggle both with all of their undivided attention! I would love to be that person to help!
