If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
My sister and I were invited to work as baby sitters by a friend. We did not expect such amazing experience of working with children and the funniest that this turned. That was one of the most exciting experiences I ever had because children are always unpredictable and we never know how they may react so we always have to be on the lookout of them and their needs especially with 1, 2 and 3 years kids as oral communication might not be their strength.

When I was studying my major as an English Language Teacher, it was a requirement to teach English either to elder people or children. I choose children as it is my passion to teach them and at an early age and see how they step by step learning. I was teaching classes at a school called Motolinea. I used to be in charge of 12 children of around 5-7 years old. It was not only me, but i was also assisted by another teacher with major experience in cases I needed. I used to start classes by playing and singing a song. Children used to dance and say hello to each other by interacting and moving around the classroom. After that, we started classes by talking about yesterday activities and we checked homework. Later, I introduce a new topic such as numbers using puppets and imitating voices. Children loved that. Activities like drawing, using paints, glue, scissors, were especially supervised and well elaborated to avoid any incident. Children had a special time for lunch and used to go with them all the time to take care of them. I spent about four months teaching classes there and when I had to leave, the children were very sad and so was i. It was also a great experience.

If you have any other areas of knowledge or skills, please describe them below:
I am a person who likes innovate and create different environments for children to learn. I am very good at creating scenarios for children to play and learn by using what is around me. For example, one day I was taking care of my little cousin and we were outdoors in the grass so I taught him how to paint draws by using nature colors like the ones in colorful flowers and grass and all type of things.
I am very good at communicating with others and in the case of children, I consider my self very well skilled to understand their needs and provide them with necessary. I know to speak a little bit of French as well so I might be able to teach children some phrases perhaps so they can be surrounded by culture and languages at an early age.

Please describe your hobbies
In my free time, I like listening to music louder when I am alone because that way I can feel the music better. I love cooking as I find it de-stressing and besides, I like to play with a different spice, flavors smells textures, ingredients in general to create a delicious meal that my mouth can enjoy. So whenever I have a day off I cook to my self the dish that I watched on the tv or a receipt that a friend share and that I wanted to taste.
I also like watching movies and if possible I rather go to the Cinema so I can feel all visual and sound emotions. I like going out to and discover new and surreal places. I enjoy discovering places of food and with special thematics. As well I love spending time in nature so whenever I have the chance, I love going camping, or simply going to a beautiful park surrounded by trees and nature to spend a good time with my family. I like doing exercise and feel healthy sometimes I rode a bike or I go to the gym.
Spending time with my family is my major reward because I can share with them my feeling and they will always understand my moods. I am the kind of girl who likes occasionally get out of the routine and start new adventures. Most likely it is me at home who is always proposing new ways to do something like Christmas holidays or vacations etc.
