Skills

Babysitter/Child Care

I have been babysitting since I was a sophomore in highschool, and continue to do it whenever possible. While I was in highschool, I took part in the vocational program; Early Childhood Studies, which is explained above. I worked at First Start Daycare in the summer of 2005, where I worked with infants under one years old, to children up to the age of twelve. I then proceeded to Plymouth State University, where I'm majoring in Childhood Studies and will obtain my teaching K-8 certification in the fall of 2010. I love interacting with children of all ages, and am always excited to meet new ones.

Interest

From growing up in the restaurant business, I have become very fast paced and can multi task well. I am good with numbers, and have learned to care for people's needs well. I understand the customer always comes first, and have taken interest in how to please customers to the best of my ability.

I am always very motivated to meet and work with new people, as I've noticed this is how I learn best. Watching others and experiencing different environments helps me learn, and I'm eager to do that.
