  About Me
My name is Kate and I am a young, energetic, active teacher candidate with a passion for working in childcare and education.

I am currently in Teacher's College at Queen's University though I live in Stittsville. I will be graduating April 2014 and am aiming to enter into the school system by September 2014 (likely occasional work). I have much experience working with children and worked as a full-time nanny for summer 2013 and 2012 for children ages 9mos - 7yrs. I have completed two practicum placements (1 month each) in a grade 1 class in Almonte and will be completing placements in both grade 4 class, march break camp for children with exceptionalities as well as core french elementary classroom. I have provided educational, engaging, activities for all the children that I have cared for as well as formed trusting and lasting relationships with all the families that I have worked for.

I pride myself on the many skills I have acquired from these jobs and others, such as; patience, time management and organizational skills as well as very well-developed strategies for working with children. In addition I am a very strong, involved, and motivated student in my education and have acquired an abundance of practical skills in pursuing my post-secondary education. All of this, I believe, have prepared me well to be a positive addition to a daycare facility or caregiver position.
