I was lucky to be a stay at home mom for many years and understand the importance of consistency in a child’s life and the presence of caring individuals. Later I became a single mother and though the trials were many I embraced the challenges. Due to my extensive involvement with my children’s elementary school I was asked if I would be interested in making a living from it. I thus became a childcare provider. I found a family that needed care for their newly born triplets, and their six year old son. One child, Rachael, possessed an auto-immune disease that left her with many various mental and physical handicaps such as deafness. Her inability to communicate encouraged me to return to school and learn sign-language. I have become fluent in the language and my goal is becoming a certified interpreter. Being fluent in three languages has taught me the importance of breaking language barriers with children. Signing to Rachael gave me the confidence to communicate and teach her siblings and other children with speech impairment at Burton Valley (Lafayette) I have grown tremendously from my experiences with all the families I have worked and I know establishing moral values, imbuing confidence, and emphasizing academic achievement, especially through language acquisition are important characteristics to foster in children. I do not establish a set of guidelines for discipline or treatment of children because I believe that each situation deserves and demands separate consideration. Each child and family is different and thus different methods and approaches can be taken. Children respond and grow in the parameters that best suite them. My role in the family is dependent upon the needs and wants of the parents and I will maintain the boundaries the family establishes. I only maintain that a patient and kind heart with the children with which I interact.
