I love doing new things daily, there's never a dull moment with me! I love looking after children and getting the opportunity to be apart of their lives and see them grow! My past experience with children would be through the daycares I have worked for in the past 5 years being a lead teacher with all ages along with occasional babysitting for families I'm close with.

I am currently an assistant teacher for toddlers through jr k students am I love every minute of it. I have worked with and loved children since I was about 12 years old. My mom was a single parent with 7 children and I am the second oldest. I have been around and taken care of kids pretty much my entire life. I have been a live in nanny for two different families. The family that I started with began with me taking care of 1 little girl, and as time went on her mother had two more children a boy and another girl, which I took care of also. The second live in nanny job was for a mother with one daughter. I have also done child care in my own home, where I took care of two little girls everyday and their brother a couple times a week. With each job I had the children from the time they got up in the morning until the time they went to bed. I bathed them, dressed them, cooked and fed them, took them to school, and spent the day doing different activities and educating them, etc.. I love children and they love me, they are one of my passions.

I am a teacher and have always enjoyed spending time with kids. My first job after my undergraduate studies was as a K-3 Literacy Tutor for xx. My job was to plan one-on-one literacy sessions with students who were below grade reading level. I loved that position because I got to know my students really well and was able to create lesson plans for their specific needs. The next year, I worked in Istanbul, Turkey as a Kindergarten teacher. I was in charge of my own classroom and planned creative and engaging lessons. I learned a lot about patience, time management, and creating a fun atmosphere while still learning. I became a part of my student's lives and got to know each of them on an individual level. This past year, I have been working as a substitute teacher. I have worked in a number of different classrooms and subbed for grades Junior Kindergarten through High School. I love the energy and enthusiasm of elementary age students.

I have over 15 years of experience working with children as a babysitter and nanny; and over 12 years experience working as an Early Childhood Teacher at an accredited Early Learning Center, working with children from 6 weeks to 13 years old. I am familiar with all the physical and cognitive milestones of infants and toddlers, as well as the educational goals of preschoolers. I also have previous experience working with children with learning disabilities and Autism. Practicing Creative Curriculum has been a highlight of working in professional childcare. It is so amazing to guide children in learning through their own sporadic interests, turning active and imaginary play into developmental lessons. I now have a 4-year-old step daughter and I am so enjoying teaching her all I know and watching her explore her world.
