I currently work as a HCA and during this time I worked for
the Boys and Girls Club of America as a Youth Development Professional. Prior to this I was employed by Associated Recreational Counsel as a Child Care Counselor. These involved working with children whose ages ranged from 5 to 13 years of age. The children come from a variety of diverse backgrounds. I have been a summer sports fitness camp counselor (ages ranged from 6-12 years) for 5 seasons. I have worked with children that are afflicted with behavioral and physical issues and find this atmosphere challenging yet extremely rewarding. I strive to bridge the gap during a teaching moment by finding ways to connect with the child or children to understand what is being taught and the best way that they can comprehend the concept. I have my bachelor‚Äôs is in Psychology and a master‚Äôs in Elementary Education. My priorities regarding children are safety, consistency and laughter in a learning environment. I am dependable, flexible with hours and timely. I own a car and have an excellent driving record.
A little about myself, I love the outdoors, long walks, cooking, music, reading, going to the beach and all animals. I have excellent references.
I thank you for your consideration,
