Teacher Assistant

USM Childcare Services
  • Worked alongside day care teachers to entertain, feed, and keep toddlers safe. 

The most influential people I worked with while at the Childcare Services at USM were the kids.  Spending so much time around 2-3 year old's has taught me not to take myself too seriously.

After working at AAA, I realized that sometimes communicating with toddlers is easier than communicating with adults.
