I've loved working with kids for as long as I can remember. I've learned a lot about childcare through my little sister, who is now 3 years old. I babysat elementary age children during Junior High. During my freshman year of high school, I participated in an after school program in which each high school student in the program is matched with one second grader, and spends two hours a week playing games and doing group activities with him or her. I completed the Counselor In Training (CIT) Program at a Camp during Summer 2013. The ages of the campers ranged from 9 to 12. I currently work with kids in Portsmouth.
