Babysitter, Teacher, Child And Youth Counselor,Caregiver


I am a Child and Youth Counselor in which I was able to work with families individually with their children to achieve certain goals, for example for the child to develop independence. I have also taught at a Preschool so I do in-cooperate this when I work with kids on a whole. I will teach them to read, learn their abc's and also get the kids involved in arts and craft along with any creative activities to help promote healthy cognitive ability and motor skills.
