Loving,Caring 40 Yr Old Lady Looking For P/T And On Call Childcare/Childsitter Jobs

Sitter in Vancouver

I AM A YOUTHFULL 40YR OLD WOMAN,WITH A WIDE AND COLORFULL BACKGROUND IN ALL TYPES OF WORK..... MOST ENJOYABLE /REWARDING WORK HAS BEEN AS A COMMUNITY SUPPORT WORKER(CSW)FOR 12 YRS,SAME COMPANY. CARING MOSTLY FOR AUTISTIC YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULTS..... SPENT OUR DAYS IN ACTIVITIES CHOSEN BY THEM.ART DAILY,I LEAD A MUSIC CLASS FOR ALL AGES AND ABILITIES EVERY FRIDAY,WE WENT HIKING/HORSEBACK RIDING,TRIPS TO PUMPKIN FARMS,CREATED A GARDEN,AND MAINTAINED IT,BOWLING,MOVIES,SOCIAL SKILLS,PERSONAL CARE AND UPKEEP..... STAFF I ALWAYS DEMONSTRATE "HEALTHY MODELLING" OF APPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS,CLEANLINESS,HANDWASHING,EATING,SOCIAL SKILLS,INTERACTING WITH EACH OTHER,BASIC PROBLEM SOLVING WITH PEERS,CONFLICT/RESOLUTION,HEALTHY "TIME OUTS"FOR BOTH MY CLIENTS AND MYSELF(USUALLY 5MIN.COOL DOWN TIME FOR MY CLIENT ,THEN WE START FRESH/CALM PROBLEM SOLVING,ADDRESSING INAPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS AND WHY(SO THE CHILD/YOUTH UNDERSTAND WHY,NOT JUST"BECAUSE")... IM LOOKING FOR A CHANGE.I WORKED WITH THE SAME COMPANY FOR 12 YEARS,(excellent references)...but i am wanting to pull back to part time and prefer 1x1,or max 3x1.I am preferring to work with children/youth over adults so i can be part of their learning and developing skills they will use for the rest of their lives.Ive allways loved this saying"It is easyer to raise children then it is to repair adults".Many habits can be extremely difficult to ever change once they have been deveoped,and not corrected at the earlyest sign of it occuring,then that behavior sets in,often for life or for eg) a autistic individual reaches their highest cognitive level(usually btwn12-17 years old) so im wanting to be more involved at the ages where they are still soaking up knowledge,like a sponge;aswell the younger the child,the more resilliant to changing environments,trying different activities,as apposed to only sticking to the few they learn as kids,esp.those raised in group homes tend to be less well rounded in different life experiences,more stuck only in the ways they learnt or taught themselves. I have first aide training.Ive taken the course every 2 years,as per the certificate requirements(and my 12 yr job)...i believe i may be due soon to renew it.Thats not a problem,its a 1 day 8 hour course given by st.johns ambulance.For me it just refreshes my memorie on the basic first aid.Ive also taken a course in "NON-VIOLENT CRISIS INTERVENTION TRAINING"...I AM TRAINED AND WELL EXPERIENCED IN HANDLING SEIZURES(FROM TONIC CLONIC TO FULL ON GRAND MALL SEIZURES). I AM A CARING,VERY HIGH ENERGY,INSPIRATIONAL,POSITIVE,LOVING LADY WHO IS DEEPLY COMMITTED TO WORKING WITH THOSE THAT LOOK UP TO US TO TEACH,AND GUIDE THEM...ASWELL AS ALL THE FUN TIMES,ACTIVE IN ARTS,OUTDOORS,SPORTS(IM AN EXCELENT ICE SKATER)I ALSO PLAY CLASSICAL FLUTE,5 STRING BASS GUITAR,CLASSICAL GUITAR,REG.GUITAR,AND A WIDE VARIETY OF PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS,SO IF YOUR CHILD ENJOYS MUSIC,PLAYS AN INSTRUMENT,OR WOULD LIKE TO,I CAN HELP THEM/FACILITATE THEIR SPECIFIC INTEREST IN THE INSTRUMENT THEY ARE KEEN ON(FEILD TRIPS TO LONG N MQUADE ARE ALLWAYS PACKED FULL OF FUN AND INSPIRATION. I AM WANTING TO START THIS TYPE OF CASUAL(part time) WORK AS SOON AS A SUITABLE MATCH IS FOUND,FOR THE FAMILY,THE CHILD(AND THEIR SPECIFIC NEEDS,PERSONALITY,ETC),AND FOR MYSELF.I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING INDIVIDUALS NEEDING CARE,AND THEIR FAMILYS.I ADAPT WELL TO CHANGE,SPONTINAITY AND HANDLE CRISIS VERY WELL.

PLEASE CONTACT ME ON MY CELL WITH ANY QUESTIONS,OR IF U WOULD LIKE TO SCEDUAL A MEET AND GREET,OR A INTERVIEW.THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I WILL BE WORKING FOR MYSELF(NOT IN A COMPANY OR DAY PROGRAM),I AM EXCITED TO HAVE A WIDER VARIETY OF OPTIONS/OPPORTUNITYS OUT THERE AND LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING AND WORKING WITH FRESH NEW FACES,LEARNING THEIR GOALS,HELPING THEM WORK TOWARDS THEM AT THEIR NATURAL LEARNING PACE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL..I ESPECIALLY ENJOY TEACHING ART,OR PLAYING WITH NEW TYPES OF ART(BASED ON INTEREST AND AGE)AND MUSIC(I FULLY LEAD AND FACILITATED A DAY FULL OF BASIC STRETCHING,YOGA,MUSIC CLASS,LUNCH,THEN MEDITATION(20 MINS QUIET TIME IN A CIRCLE),THEN FINISHED THE DAY WITH ART.I DID THAT EVERY FRIDAY FOR ABOUT 4 YEARS,WITH UP TO 20 PEOPLE ALL WITH DIFFERENT SPECIAL NEEDS,OFTEN I ONLY HAD ONLY 1-2 OTHER STAFF(THERE TO HELP WITH OUTBURSTS,DIFFERENT NEEDS OF THE CLIENTS WE SUPPORT,WHILE I LEAD THE CLASS.....
