Patient and dedicated student eager to work in the area of childcare. I am very excited to care for and nurture children of all ages, ethnicity, and social background.
Starting in September of 2011, I took up the volunteer position of "Assistant Teacher" at Ballet Lubbock for a class focused on children with ASDs (autism spectrum disorders). I feel like the class was very beneficial to the students, as well as to myself. My focus as the assistant was to maintain a peaceful yet fun environment in the class and to use my knowledge of ASL (American Sign Language) to communicate with some of the less verbal students in the class. From time to time I would step in and substitute if the primary teacher could not attend. It was a very eye-opening and enriching experience.
Beginning in October of 2012, I began teaching private dance lessons to one of the students from the Dance Movement Therapy class I was assisting in. Every Friday after our normal group class, I would stay and work with my student (Elizabeth) for forty-five minutes to an hour, completely one on one. I did not feel that it was appropriate to accept pay from her family, therefore it was more like a volunteer position, however I would not trade that experience for the world.
I am currently still in high school, however I will be graduating this May, one year early, at the age of seventeen. My coursework is that of any other high school student you may find, with a few added studies. I am currently seeking certification in American Sign Language, I am also studying citizenship as one of my everyday subjects. This includes, but is not limited to: World Geography, Economics, Bible Study, Career Planning, and Life Strategies.
I am currently enrolled in an online course with the goal of earning my certification in American Sign Language.
