Loving SAHM looking for long term, part-time position caring for 1 child

Sitter in Arvada

I am a stay-at-home mom of a wonderful 15-month-old boy. Aside from my current and on going experience caring for my son, I spent most of my youth caring for my two little sisters and other children in my neighborhood. As an adult, I decided I loved working with children so much that I decided to attend school to work with at-risk-youth. I attended college where I majored in Social Work, with a concentration in Child and Adolescent Welfare. While attending school, I volunteered for two years at the Boys and Girls Club and as a mentor through a charity. At the Boys and Girls Club, I worked predominantly in their education department with children between the ages of 6-16, where I was responsible for looking after the children's safety, helping them with their homework, teaching children to read, and most importantly playing and interacting! In 2010, I won the Boys and Girls Club's VIP and MVP awards. As a mentor, I "worked" one-on-one with a young girl for two years. The main goal of this was to be a positive role model in her life, confidant, and homework helper. It was truly rewarding work. I have also worked as an student ambassador in local high schools, where I helped students through the daunting process of applying for college. I also worked with children through an internship where I was responsible for completing in depth assessments of the youth. As a caregiver/mother/professional, I am truly a proponent of being very hands on. This means that I do not believe in using the television, computer, or other gadgets as a means of stimulating children's brains. Although understanding how to use technology is necessary in our society (learning to type, research, etc.). I believe that children benefit far more from playing, new experiences, being outdoors and human interactions. I also am passionate about healthy eating (I have a large garden and chickens)! Aside from these things, I firmly believe that the most important thing children need, are patient caring people individuals to show interest in them and love.
