My name is Alexandra Stringer and I am 23 years old. I graduated from the University of California Santa Cruz with a Bachelor’s degree in Feminist Studies. Following my studies at UCSC, I returned to Mira Costa community college to complete my 12 Early Childhood Education credits. I come from a family of four girls, 2 older sisters and one sister four years younger than me. Growing up, my mother worked at a day care center while I was in elementary school through middle school. I assisted her in watching the children younger than me including bottle feeding, reading to younger kids, and helping with other activities. Throughout high school, I volunteered at the Carlsbad library reading program and at St Thomas Moore Vacation Bible School. During the 2 week long bible school I was responsible for supervising groups of 4-5 preschool aged kids. I also worked as a babysitter for family friends and neighbors throughout high school, with experiences babysitting up to four kids at once. When I turned 16 I started working at the Carlsbad Monroe Street pool and taught swim lessons there for five years for kids ranging from 3 to 15 years old. In college, I interned for a Kindergarten classroom at a school for children with autism and gained one-to-one instructional experience. I am very passionate about working with children and I am currently working as a paraprofessional for students in special education programs. I am certified by the American Red Cross in Adult CPR/AED, Infant CPR, & First Aid.
Due to my experience as a paraprofessional I am happy to work with children with disabilities. However, if your child has a disability I expect full disclosure BEFORE watching your child (for any developmental, social/emotional, or behavioral special needs). This is for my safety and the safety of your child. If you do not disclose your child’s disability and I learn about it while I am watching your child I will not hesitate to call and ask you to return home. Once again this is for my safety and liability and the safety of your child.
