In high school I took 3 years early childhood education and completed CPR certification and was registered to be able to work at a daycare.

I grew up the oldest of 4. Responsibility fell on me very early in life when my step mom was diagnosed with cancer. Having two half siblings that were very much younger then my sister and I, I had to step up in place of my step mother and care for them. I cooked, cleaned, bathed, took to preschool,and helped with homework most of my teenage years. Before moving to South Carolina, the past three years I have worked at a before and after school age program in Germany as a lead provider. I planned and conducted weekly lesson plans with children ages 5-12,supervised field trips with 40+kids, conducted parent events, planned community projects,and face painted at birthday parties.
