Age: 22

Nationality: United States of America

Country of residence: United States

Start Date: 01.01.2021

Education: Bachelor

Childcare experience: I have five years of professional experience working with children. The majority of this time was spent at Chautauqua Elementary School, in which I specifically worked with children whose primary language was not English and were ages 10-16. Additionally, I worked as a camp counselor at YMCA Camp Coleman with children ages 5-12. My focus at this camp was in visual arts, as well as outdoor education. I have witnessed the empowerment children and young adults experience when they are given the opportunity to connect with their teachers and recognize the power of educational communities.

Motivation: I have recently graduated from Seattle University in the United States with a B.A. in English. I plan to use my degree to work with children! As a person who comes from a long line of traditional teachers who have worked in traditional school settings, I know that my skill sets and approach to education would better fit in an international learning environment. In order to become the best teacher I can be, I know I will need to gain international experience with children, as they will teach me just as much as I will teach them.

I am a creative writer and lover of literature. I believe in the power of verbal storytelling, and that storytelling manifests in one’s playfulness and rich inner worlds. This implementation must begin during childhood, as it is the most impressionable period of our lives.

My educational philosophy has been fed by my community’s value of nature, producing art, and communal care.
