I have been babysitting since I was about 13. I have been on multiple mission trips with my church working specifically with children. We were expected to guide and teach them through different obstacles throughout the week we spent with them. I have also volunteered for a number of years at my church in the nursery and childcare programs. This includes being head of the Alpha Service Childcare were I taught and managed the program. I attended Bethel College and majored in Elementary Education. Second semester of my senior year I student taught at Darden Primary Center.
