If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
When I was in the university I used to be a teacher's helper for 2 years of the first year. I used to teach architecture in the way they catch the information. Every student has a different educational way and cognitive style, so I had to change my mind and method every time to catch their ideas and teach them in a correct way.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
I am a curious person. I was indifferent to projects throughout my life. I was in dance and acting groups because I have been fascinated with body expression, so I developed a lot of psychomotor and spatial skills with which I like to spend fun time with children. In the same way, I learned to create art with different materials either in a 2d or 3d format, and I use it as a methodology for exploring children's skills. Much of this knowledge I used when I took care of children on special days when they had time to make crafts, do outside activities, or develop online courses. As I took a diploma in education, I learned to adjust myself to the needs of each child and, I learned to recognize and encourage their strengths and support their weaknesses. Likewise, I learned other things in digital knowledge in my career as the development of 3d programs, editing videos, and more. That helped me to reach the kids dynamically when I wanted them to understand something.

Please describe your hobbies
My hobbies are drawing, playing guitar, dancing, watching movies, traveling, designing clothes, acting in short films, making collages, analyzing, and writing about different things that catch my attention. Most of these hobbies helped me doing some activities with children like making drawings with them, painting with several materials, dancing together, watching movies. Also, many of these hobbies I could teach to children who had the same interests and wanted to know more about them. In addition, I like to cook new recipes; I like to spend timer with my family and many times with the kids; we enjoy those moments because it is very dynamic.
Recently I was invited to blog about fashion and architecture in my country for a cultural organization, which also whetted my appetite to investigate different social, spatial, children's behavior, and other topics.
