If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
One of the best experience I ever have is to share with kids as english teacher, all the emotive activities full of knowledge that day by day I share with them. It was a big creative challenge to desing and execute for the kids in order to catch their attention, nevertheless I enjoyed teaching troungh plays (teather), fantasy history narring and singing.

Another brief and awesome story is that during my gastronomy studies I had de oportunity to share with disabled kids in an occupational center where I taught them how to cook easy ecipies by themselves.
