I have been a stay at home Mom for the past twenty years. I chose to stop working to raise my two children. That has been the most rewarding time in my life, so far. Prior to having my children, I was a Graphic Designer for fifteen years. However, I believe the most meaningful career I could have would be as a Teacher's Aide. I enjoy helping children to think creatively, solve problems, learn to respect others, and help them to discover new things each day. The past three years, I have been taking care of my parents after my Father had a stroke. My Mother has Dementia and is now in a memory care unit. I am ready to begin a new career helping teachers foster a positive, productive, and encouraging classroom environment.
Coordinate care for my parents before and while living in an Assisted Living Facility. Take them, now just my Mother, to doctor appointments, purchase medications, food and clothing, organize her living space, encourage and participate in activities that will safely promote physical, emotional, and social well being.
Raised my two children. I volunteered in their classrooms and was involved in all of their activities and helped with their education. They were both Honor Students and won awards for their personal and educational achievements. My Daughter is currently teaching Kindergarten at Spring-Ford. And, my son is a Senior at Kutztown University majoring in Communication Design. Both were always on the Dean's List.
