Child Care Experience
I babysat a 5 month old boy from May to November 2006. I assisted in all general childcare duties such as feeding, entertaining, bathing and putting him to sleep. I babysat a 9 year old child from February to April 2017 on weekends and after school. I picked the child up from school and assisted with homework. I worked at a preschool from June to July 2017 taking care of children ages 1 to 2 years old. I made sure the children were eating during breakfast, participated and assisted in activities such as changing diapers, muscle training, listening skills, coordination, concentration activities and story time.
Sports, Interests and Hobbies
Art, photography, poetry, sketching, writing, recording music, hiking, walking, jogging
I am patient, with a laugh-with-life sense of humor. One cannot take themselves too seriously when surrounded by cheerful kids. It is impossible (do not try this at home). Being an au pair would broaden my knowledge of different cultures and as I would be teaching English in Asia after my time in America, this will help me greatly. This will also allow me to be immersed in a different culture and support these future endeavors. Caring for them would be bliss (on most days). Children have a courageous, natural style to life. A trade I can be certain will shape me into a stronger person and an even better artist.
