Introduction to families
Dear Family, I am a 22 year-old, I have just come back from working at a private all boys boarding school in Oxford, UK. I could get a job doing anything else but I love children and I have the patience for it, therefore I decided to do this job par time while I study.
There is no such thing as perfect, but there is a young person whiling to give their all. I was privileged enough to have a stay at home mommy, but I know that today this isn’t always possible and woman also want to have careers, but having the opportunity to be a big sister and be there for someone else’s children when they can’t is something I would love to do. It’s my way of giving back all the love and care I have received growing up. I feel that a perfect au pair notices when children are looking upset, aren’t acting themselves, feel overwhelmed and can step in offer support and care as well as inform the parent. It’s all about communication. I know that if I was not with my children all day I would want someone there with them that would give me the best possible feedback and keep me updated with their lives. I don’t want to be the au pair annoyed or on her phone waiting for the day to pass, I want engage with the children I work with and get to know them. Children teach us so much about the world and ourselves that I am always so excited to hear what they will say, and see what they will do next. I hope that this is what people look for, because I don’t know what the right thing is to write, but I wrote this from my heart.
In school I was academically strong. I love art, dancing. Cutting and pasting. I enjoy the creative side of life. I also enjoy gardening, being outdoors, playing with my dogs. I can play a little bit of sports, but I enjoyed dancing and gymnastics more growing up. I enjoy writing and reading. I've always been tutoring in Highschool and after Highschool.
