  About Me
My name is Samantha W.. I am 21 years old, and I am a junior attending SUNY Oneonta. I am currently working towards my bachelors degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I have had a passion for teaching children since I was a child myself. I grew up on a property with a family owned Garden Center on it, and spent my childhood naturally taking the customers' kids under my wing as their parents shopped. Whether I was taking them up back to show them how to feed the chickens, or how to build a fire, I was always proud to teach other children the values and things i've learned from my parents. I am very into the outdoors, as I love hiking, kayaking, playing frisbee, bike riding, etc. I am excited to work with young children one day, and incorporate learning into nature and the great outdoors. I have grown to be very patient with children, and I am very open-minded and accepting of differences. I can be very creative, which helps me relate to and connect with children. I am trustworthy, and I can most defiantly be counted on to be compassionate model and nurturer for children.

  Work Experience & Education Background
3 years experience, 2 references
I have babysat my younger cousins ever since I was a teenager. I spent a summer babysitting a 3 and 7 year old. My education classes require that I observe and participate in classrooms, and this semester I spent five weeks working with toddlers at a local preschool. I had to work more closely with one child who was three years old, doing activities with her. I have some good experience working with toddlers, and with children at the elementary school level.

Two summers ago I worked at a Residential Treatment Center, in which I was a teachers assistant who cared for a first and second grade class. I had to help the students manage their stress in various therapeutic ways. This was a great experience for me. 
Childcare experience within the following age groups:
3 - 12 months, 2 - 5 years, 5 - 10 years  
High School, Graduated High School or Equivalent, College, CPR Training, First Aid Training 
I graduated Brewster High School, and am now in my third year at SUNY Oneonta.
