Child Care Experience
From June to July 2019, I watched Ashley (10 mths) for about 45 hours a week. I fed her changed her diapers, put her to sleep, played with her, bathed her, and provided general care for her. Additionally, I babysat Santiago (newborn) from December 2012 to August 2015 for about 28 hours a week. For him, I was responsible for changing his diapers, bathing him, playing with him, and introducing him to music. From January 2014 to 2018, I worked 20 hours a week as a music instructor with children ages 3 to 7 years old. Here, I taught them music, planned activities for them, played with them, did crafts, met with parents, organized concerts, and taught them values such as sharing and respect.
Sports, Interests and Hobbies
Listening to music, watching movies, reading books, playing board games, cooking, going to the movies, doing yoga, hiking, biking, walking, spending time with friends, going to music concerts, going to operas, going to the beach, going to museums, dancing, football, volleyball, basketball, rhythmic & artistic gymnastics, and water-sports.
I love to share and play with children, as well a get to know new places and people, so I want to be an au pair because it will offer me the opportunity to do both. Additionally, I want to develop my teaching skills, learn about and share with people from other cultures, and improve my English. I have experience caring for children with special needs, have previously taken pedagogy and methodology workshops in order to teach music to children, and have both a first aid and swimming certification.
