I am excited to continue my work with children. I am seeking a position that allows me to grow and share my talents and gifts with others.
I have a passion for teaching children, and helping out where ever I'm needed. I enjoy music, outdoor activities, arts and crafts. I like being creative and resourceful with the tools I'm given.
Aug 1996 - Jul 2013
Started as a contract worker providing childcare for masses and other events. Was offered a position in the preschool in 2001 and accepted. I continued to do childcare in the center as their coordinator as well the preschool work. I eventually worked my way up to a full-time salaried employee.
I worked with children from Early Learners thru Pre-K teaching them about the Catholic religion and the religious-based programs affiliated with our church. I had over 80 children that were in the school that I saw and taught.
During my tenure there, I studied and acquired certifications from the Phoenix Diocese for the advancement of teachings associated with Catecheses of the Good Shepard, safe environment, fingerprint clearance and CPR. I lead the music program and P.E. for the students as well as assisted other teachers in their needs.
