Mariah  A. - Seeking Work in Wilmington

Hourly rate11.42 / hour

I have a great passion and desire to work with kids, and I have seven years of experience doing so. I enjoy helping them learn, building forts, and playing games that enhance their skills for learning in school while having a great time with them. I enjoy both outside and inside activities, and I believe that every child can learn and I believe strongly in the importance of a great education. In addition, I have several hobbies; one of which is playing the piano with which I take great pride in as well as other instruments. I enjoy helping children play the piano as well as other music because I believe that music helps to enhance their skills for a positive learning environment. I have experience working with kids where I worked as a counselor for two years. I worked with kids helping them build confidence teaching them arts and crafts, skits, and talent shows to help them express themselves. In addition, I feel it is very important that children feel safe in the water. While certified swimming instructors were teaching them how to swim, I was there in the water with them to help them feel more comfortable as well as to help them feel safe going under water. In addition, I love sports, and I enjoy going to their games to help be there to support their interests. I believe that every child should go after their interests and dreams no matter how hard they have to work to achieve them. I have a great desire to work with children to help encourage them not to give up, and to be as supportive as I possibly can to help their dreams come true. I am currently a student at UNCW, and my classes are in the mornings and I would be available any time after school. I have a clean driving record, and I have reliable transportation. I enjoy light cooking, and I also enjoy showing kids how to cook, and working with them to help prepare meals that they might otherwise not have tried. I believe in eating healthy and making and creating meals for kids as well as the meals that the whole family can enjoy. I have references available upon request.
Katie O. - Seeking Work in Wilmington

Hourly rate14.28 / hour

My name is Katie and I will be graduating from UNCW with a degree in psychology and a concentration in child psychology this December! After graduation I plan on applying for a masters in elementary education as well. I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself! I am EMT-B certified, CPR/AED/BLS certified, CNA 1 certified and work in the emergency department at NHRMC! I have worked with children over the past 9 years coaching a summer swim team. I coached children ages 2-18 and worked one on one with several swimmers giving private lessons. During my high school career, I spent 2 years participating in a "PEPI" program (Physical Education Pupil Instructor) in which I would travel to various elementary schools and teach several fun and exciting games and activities in order to get children active! I have also tutored for several years and participated in a very selective program at UNCW teaching under privileged children in the Hillcrest community how to read. As you can probably see from my profile picture I am extremely out going with children and will practically do anything to please them whether it is dressing up in a goofy costume or being there to give them a hug when they are hurt or upset. I would LOVE to meet your family and look forward to hearing from you soon!
Ashley C. - Seeking Work in Wilmington

Hourly rate8.57 / hour

My name is Ashley C. and I just moved to Wilmington, NC from Northern IL. Back in IL, I studied early childhood education with a minor in foreign languages including Spanish and German. Also in IL, I worked for a school called Olson Park Elementary in Machesney Park, Illinois. I was a teacher's assistant for two semesters and working with fourth graders. The previous semester, I worked for a Day Care at the local high school and I was the caregiver to a 4-year-old girl with special needs. Other than the two schools I worked for, I have babysat numerous times for various couples for a few years until the child was old enough to care for themselves. As I settle into my new apartment (hopefully as next semester rolls around), I plan on enrolling back into online classes at CFCC in downtown Wilmington. Also, I can provide my resume and letters of recommendation from previous employers and the teacher I worked - I will bring those during the interview process! I prefer to not do live-in care, but if it's close enough to my home in Wilmington, I most definitely would consider it!
Cynnamon W. - Seeking Work in Wilmington

Hourly rate11.42 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

For about 4-5 years I was a nanny for a little girl named Maddy. I watched her from when her parents left work & then back from work. I watched her grow into a smart adolescent. Also, I babysat two children from the ages of 2-7 when their parents just needed a night out. I learned what children need from a nanny/babysitter with a wide variety of childcare classes taken in high school. I also took a 3-day course & became a certified baby-sitter and CPR certified at the age of 13.
