Introduction to families
Dear Family, Hello there! My name is Micaela. I am a first year student studying my B. Ed in Foundation Phase Teaching. I am really excited to be joining Au Pair SA, and am looking even more forward to working with you and your little ones!
I am a very bubbly, confident, outgoing person who loves to work with children. I am also extremely organised and have strong beliefs in ensuring that children are given an opportunity to engage in holistic teaching and learning activities that are both stimulating and age- and developmentally-appropriate. Although I do believe in the classic, "All work and and no play makes Jack a dull boy" mentality, I am still a firm believer than when work needs to be done (i.e. homework, studying in advance for tests and exams etc.), it must be done. I am also a firm believer in allowing children to express who they are freely, acting as a mediator rather than a dictator when it comes to each child constructing new knowledge about their own worlds. As I am half Portuguese, I do come from a huge family. Because of this, I do have quite a bit of experience in taking care of children from the infancy stage, all the way through to the Intermediate Phase (Grades RRR-7).
Singing, dancing, acting; reading, volunteer work (SPCA, Old age homes, VC Sandton's volunteer community), spending time with my family, walking the dogs, fitness and baking.

Although Micaela has been with us for a short time gaining work experience - she has very quickly become a loved member of our 2-3 group. Micaela is always willing to go the extra mile in terms of assisting with the running of the class, but more importantly, she has quickly built a beautiful rapport with the children who she works closely with - in that they respond positively to her through hugs and listen closely to her gentle guidance. Micaela gets along well with those she comes into contact with and I'd highly recommend her for an au-pairing position as well as a teaching position once she is qualified.
