About me

Welcome to my VisualCV! I would like to invite you to explore my experiences and coursework that involved working with children and families. Below you will find internships, jobs and coursework material that allowed me to graduate from the Child Development program at California State University, Chico. I have also received my Associates of the Arts degree in Elementary Education. I have been working with children for almost 10 years and have had many opportunities to develop and grow into a professional childcare worker. Throughout my education as a college student, I have gained experience while working in culturally and developmentally diverse classroom settings. I have had experience with special needs children and am aware of the Common Core Curriculum values and standards. My strong work ethic and exceptional organizational skills, have helped me develop into a young working professional with a commitment to children. Over my years of experience, I have been able to work with children and families effectively while maintaining a professional and compassionate demeanor. My two degrees in Child Development and Elementary Education, have helped prepare me to become an efficient and creative educator.
