My name is Natalie Ernst. I majored in Child Development at Chico State University. I am going to share with you some of my assignments and documents that I have completed as a Child Development student. These assignments will hopefully help you get to know more about me and my views and opinions as a Child Development professional.
I have had the opportunity to be involved in many professional internships through my Child Development major. These were at the Chico State Lab school, or the Child Development Lab and at Mi Escuelita Maya Preschool. I have also had experience working with children in camps as a counselor and lead staff member. My other work experiences include being as after school care leader for elementary school children in Durham, CA a tumbling teacher in Durham, CA, and working with children at the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito, CA.
