My name is Amanda, I am 24 years old and currently live in Gatineau, QC. I have a passion for working with children, and hope to someday work as an elementary school teacher or child psychologist. I have experience working in an elementary school as a Teachers Aid and supervisor.
I am seeking a full-time position, starting in July or August. My hours are flexible, and I am also available on weekends. I am bilingual, my first language being English. If your child(ren) speaks primarily french, this would be a great opportunity for them to become more accustomed to english. Or vice-versa. Let me know what makes you most comfortable.
I consider myself to be an active and health-conscious person. I love to cook healthy meals (as well as treats of course. balance is key). I love to exercise and hang out outside when the weather is nice. Art is a big part of my life, and I love doing crafts, playing music, writing or coming up with new ideas for children to express themselves. I have always had pets, and love to be around animals (if you have a dog - bonus. ). I believe that kids should always have room to comfortably be themselves. I encourage honesty and individuality, and am confident that I would be a fun and responsible caregiver.
Please feel free to ask me more questions :)
I have plenty of experience in working with children. I have worked at an elementary school for 2 years, and have experience aiding children from ages 5 to 11 years old. I worked as a Teachers Assistant in a kindergarten class, working with children who needed extra attention and care. My duties at the school included ensuring the safety of the children in my care, ensuring the rules were respected, and of course making sure the kids had fun while learning. I also worked as a daycare supervisor for grades 2-6. This taught me how to organize activities for the kids to enjoy, follow an itinerary, and work independently with a group of 7 year olds.
Before working at the elementary school, I babysat for many families in my area, starting when I turned 13 years old. I have babysat children from the ages of 6 months to 8 years old.
Working for your family would be an incredible opportunity for me to grow in my profession, as well as gain valuable experience.
I graduated from high school in 2013, and briefly attended cegep in the Liberal Arts program. I currently am not in school, but hope to return hopefully in a few years.
