If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I also had the experience in taking care of children when I was the coach of a handball team where I was in charge of the group of children of different ages. That really helped me develop different methodologies over the years for dealing with children.
During that time the children performed training games, coordination exercises, ball throwing, individual and group exercises, races, defense and attack tactics, throwing techniques and defense position, etc.
In training, I taught them responsibility: arrive on time for training, have parental permission to compete and travel, and have health insurance. Also be kind to other children: help others if someone falls, share water in the break, encourage and support other children.
Finally, I taught them fellowship, they were all a team, during competitions all goals were celebrated, also the goalkeeper's saves, and if the match was lost, we were all responsible and we had to improve without blaming ourselves.

Please describe your hobbies
I love doing sports, I play handball, basketball and volleyball. Sometimes I run, I really like to train, which makes me a suitable person to play a lot of games with children, I don't get tired easily. Children tend to have a lot of energy and what they need is the accompaniment of an active person like me.
I am passionate about traveling, I like to know other cultures, places and people and learn from them. I have an open mind which makes me a person who adapts quickly to the environment and that helps me when it comes to meeting and dealing with people from other cultures.
I also like to read and learn new things, I consider myself a curious person and eager to learn together with my host family and my host children.
