I am a recent college graduate with a bachelor’s in education. I am endorsed in dance, and social studies, but have also studied music extensively. I have a valid CPR certification. I am fluent in French. Mostly, though, I love working with kids!

I have a wide range of experiences that have allowed me develop skills necessary in working with kids. I provide childcare that prioritizes childrens safety, development, and creativity. I believe in creating experiences for children that will allow them to grow and learn in a variety of ways, providing them with opportunities to explore and discover while engaging with their imagination along the way.

My time working as a day camp counselor for children ages 6-14 offered me opportunities to engage with kids in imaginative and creative outlets, tapping into their imaginations in order to build connections and help them discover. I monitored childrens safety, communicated with parents, built and executed fun activities, and frequently resolved conflicts between kids.

My experiences working as an English as a Second Language teacher gave me skills in patience, versatility, and adaptability. Teaching full-immersion method for language learning to ages 2-6 years old, I relied on my ability to make the kinesthetic and visual senses available in my teaching. Students were able to connect to English by entering the material through common contexts of dance, music, and visual arts. Teaching ESL to such young kids trained me to be in tune to how kids are responding and be flexible with activities I had planned.

When working with diverse populations in a rehabilitation facility, I fostered skills in behavior management, dependability, and self-reliance. I learned to consistently provide boundaries that will ensure childrens safety in day to day, and learning activities. Working with at-risk youth provided me with real life experiences in conflict resolution problems and how to apply critical thinking in highly tense situations. I have the ability to diffuse and deescalate violent or emotional children. I aim to always establish safe, and effective communication in my childcare.
