Throughout my educational experience at Georgia Southern I worked as a nanny for several different families. For one family, I cared a for young boy (age 4) with severe autism and a young girl (age 7) with emotional issues. During this time I creatively developed fun activities to encourage participation and interaction. For another family, I cared for a five month old child and encouraged engagement in activities related to the development of motor skills. During the final year of my education at Georgia Southern University, I cared for three children ages 4, 8, and 10. I took them to and from school, church, and extracurricular activities. I helped the children with homework and school projects, encouraged reading, and tutored the children when necessary.
I have a true passion to help better the lives of children that come into my life. My belief is that all children can learn and grow when provided with the necessary support and encouragement. My work experience as a nanny shows my dedication to helping all children grow.
