Taylor Klein

Desk Attendant - CSU Chico, Academic Intern - Boys & Girls Club, and Student Coordinator Intern - Wildcat Leadership Institute

Summary

As a Chico State student, I have been educated in the fundamental and conceptual material in the Child Development and Sociology fields. As a professional, I have practiced my time management, organization, punctuality, communication, teamwork, public speaking, and networking skills and abilities. As an intern in the child care field, I provided exceptional care, versatile supervision and implemented developmentally appropriate curriculum. I am a recognized mandated reporter by which I am able to recognize causes for concern, report any suspicions,  and keep confidentiality. As a role model and mentor I demonstrated consistent appropriate behavior and actions, gave guidance and assistance, and presented myself in an approachable and friendly manner.
