My name is
I’m from the United States but have been living in Beijing, China for the past three years and would not be available to relocate until November. Because I have spent so much time living abroad I would probably request a week or two throughout the year, when convenient for your family, for me to visit home.
I have spent a long time working with children and as such have my own ideals when it comes to communicating with children in my life. I find that mutual respect and strong bonds are developed when adults ensure kids feel heard, understood, and valued as individuals. As well as giving them the tools they need to become independent learners and eventually independent adults. This is the core of what being an excellent care provider means to me.
I hope I have provided ample information to you and I look forward to learning more about each of you and your families’ needs.
I've been working with children and families since I began sitting for friends and neighbors at the age of 12. At 15 I began working in a child care center and by 18 was the lead teacher in my own classroom. At 21, I packed up and moved to China to teach English as a second language. For half of my life I have been working with children from newborns to 13 year olds.
