Faye B. - Seeking Work in Westfield

Hourly rate20.00 / hour

For my entire life, I have worked and interacted with children. My mother is a clever pre-school teacher, I grew up watching her create ingenious lesson plans and age-appropriate interactive science experiments to instill an enthusiasm for learning. As I got older, I assisted her in some of those creations, and attended her classes on "Take Your Child to Work Day". Through my adolescence, I babysat, acted as a mother's helper and volunteered at my church's in service day care and an afternoon childcare program held in the School, where my mother still works. Additionally, I have experience working with and counseling troubled teens.

I have been babysitting since my freshman year of high school and I have never had a bad experience. Being around children is what I love, and what has inspired me to go to college as an education major to become a teacher. The children I have babysat for kept me energized and enjoying life. They always kept me on my toes and have even taught me a few things. Being a babysitter is a great experience for becoming a teacher and I would do anything in my power to help a child.
