If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
During my teaching time, I had kids with special needs. While I was working in these institutions I had work-training with the teachers and the psychologist from there.
Among the activities we have done together is always making the kids comfortable with the entire group and never exclude them. Always giving more attention to them and helping to complete all the assignments and congratulate them for their job. Painting, gluing, coloring, dancing, and singing are some of the most liked in my experience of working with kids with special needs. Having closer conversations with the parents, other experienced - teachers, and phycologists have helped me to improve my teaching with them. I have also received training to work with the kids it has helped me to control at least 2 students with special needs per group. This is an inclusive education so students feel comfortable and they improve their communication skilss.
I have taken care of children in my family. While their parents are not at home and I am free, I go to their houses and look after them. The ages of these kids are from 6 to 8 years old.

I have experience with 3 children with autism:
• 5 year old boy during 7 months
• 4 year old boy during 8 months
• 5 year old boy during 8 months

I have the ability to develop well-educated and respectable students; they can help with not only their knowledge growth but personal improvement, too. I am going to describe some of the skills I have:
Enthusiasm: I always need to adopt a good attitude and share excitement to my class!
Leadership: I lead and guide the classroom; I can manage a number of different personalities, including misbehaving children, and steer them in the right direction.
Organisation: I am able to keep on top of all the tasks and complete their duties in a timely manner.
Respectfulness: children and teens feel safe to share their values and opinions with me.
Multitasking: I needs to have eyes on the back of her head and should be able to monitor children’s behaviour and monitoring while they are playing or doing homework or eating, etc.
Communication: I have learnt how to interact with people of all ages.
Adaptability: I have to handle each circumstance appropriately and come with quick solutions
Creativity: I keep students interested and engaged through roleplay or other fun learning activities.
Patience: I understand when kids start to act out. However, I have to correct if there is bad behaviour.

Please describe your hobbies
I love reading and writing stories. I always practice my pronunciation when reading out loud books in English. I read Spanish books as well. I most like romantic and academic books. I always write short stories about my daily life.
I like finding out information about other people's culture throught articles, videos, pictures, etc.
The curiosity of living in another country with anither people have taken me to investigate more about the countries and making it as a passion. I always asks people from another country about their culture and the interesting places they have been. I alays listen to their stories and I asks questions about it because I would like to travel some day.
I like drawing, making crafts, travelling, taking photos and editing them because photos are the best thing to remember something you enjoyed a lot. It is like capturing wonderful moments forever.
