My past childcare experience: I have worked with children all my life. As a young girl, I was always looking to babysit the neighbor's children or my own nieces and nephews. In regards, to my nieces and nephews, I have spent numerous hours working with them as they have grown up. Right now, I have 11 nieces and nephews, ranging from 2 years old to 24 years old. Through high school, I continued working with children by volunteering to teach Sunday school and summer VBS. In college, I worked for 2 years in a childcare center as the afternoon preschool teacher. After college, I have spent many years teaching in private schools through the Church of the Lutheran Confession (CLC). I also spent a short time working as a nanny when I did not have a teaching position. I lived with the family and enjoyed them immensely. Currently, I have resigned from my work as a teacher in the CLC, and I am looking for a full-time nanny position. My experience with children has varied widely throughout my teaching career. As an educator, I have been required to manage multiple priorities and maintain organization in a fast-paced environment. In my relations with students, I have resolved situations involving conflicts while initiating character development techniques. I have made decisions while maintaining a professional standard and following school policies. Throughout my career, I have adapted curriculum and used alternative teaching methods to integrate students with special needs into my classroom's educational program. I have a deep love for helping children find success and fully develop their unique gifts. Initially, I feel that children simply need to know someone cares about them. Discovering their characters and desires in life, definitely is the key to building a relationship of trust and growth with them. Children need to know you are consistent. Children need to know that they may make mistakes, but that you will be there to help them figure out the mess they have made. Children need to be able to see that you have time for them. Children need to have someone that just listens and cares. I do believe that children should have high, yet obtainable expectations set for them. They need to be taught to respect the authority figures in their life. They also should be guided in the pursuit of the character qualities of self-control, kindness, honesty, and generosity. I feel they should be taught the difference between right and wrong, and learn to apologize to those whom they have wronged. While training children, I have also sought to help them see the importance of helping with tasks while experiencing the joys of a job well done. I have 11 nieces and nephews, ranging from ages 2-24, who I have had the privilege of working with over the years in addition to my teaching experiences. As they have grown up, I have found that taking time out for them means more than any expense gift I may present to them. I often hear them reliving the times we spent together camping, hiking, horseback riding, etc. Creating memories with children is so important. In conclusion, I feel the establishment of teamwork is a priority when taking care of the needs of children. I enjoy developing successful professional working relationships with parents in providing attainable goals for their children. These strong relationships can only help in the successful development of the children.
