Introduction to families
Hi. I believe I am the best candidate for the job. I love children and they love me. I always go the extra mile and know how to multi task. I understand how to keep my cool in stress-full situations, like when one of the kids gets sick. I am very loving and also have a great sense of humour. I can get very goofy sometimes and the kids love that, but I am not a push over and they always respect me. I am an artist and love doing crafts with the kids.
I am mature and have a lot of patience and experience with children of all ages. I'm a gentle soul and know how to communicate on all levels. Children have a way of opening up to me whenever they have a problem and I teach them many life lessons on how to be kind and how to share with their siblings.
I do lots of arts and crafts, cooking, baking, playing guitar, yoga, woodwork and singing.

Assisted children with homework assignments and special projects across different subjects to promote academic success. Used positive reinforcement techniques to promote patience and other good behaviour in children. Consulted with mother to discuss activities and behaviour of each child. Dressed the children and took them to school. Bathed, dressed and helped with teeth brushing to promote healthy personal hygiene and good oral health. Handled daily administrative tasks efficiently to minimize time away from children, including updating attendance and requesting new supplies and groceries. Developed games and activities using arts and crafts to support learning and verbal skills. Selected appropriate stories based on ages of children and teachable moments, read to groups and promoted discussions based on content. Kept areas clean, organised and stocked, and sanitised surfaces and toys each week
