WORK EXPERIENCE:
Oriole Nursery School -Current Seasonal
As a recent employee at Oriole Nursery School, I have already fallen in love with the fun, upbeat, atmosphere that working with 2-5-year-olds brings. Each morning I come in and help set up all the programming needed for that day, each day there are buckets of toys and games for me to choose from and put out for the children to play with. Throughout the day it is my responsibility to monitor the children during outdoor and indoor play and make sure they are playing safely. Some other duties of mine consist of diaper changes, group bathroom trips, playing with the children, and helping them with a morning snack. Every day we prepare morning snack for the children, it is my responsibility to make sure each child has enough snack and are eating everything they are given.

YMCA Niagara Region
Childcare Current

As an employee at the YMCA, I am responsible for upholding the Y values every day I am at work. As a member of Childcare, it is my responsibility to make sure I arrive on time every day ready with enthusiasm and activities for the 13 children I am responsible for. A typical shift for me would consist of gathering my group of children in the gym then taking them to our designated classroom: while we are in this classroom I would layout a healthy snack for them and have activities ready for them to play that are either emotional/language stimulating, mathematical/science, creative/artistic or sports related. All of my children come from many different skill levels and backgrounds so it is very important that I provide a safe and comfortable setting for them to explore every day.


Walker Family YMCA
Group Counsellor Summer 2018

As a group counselor for Jr. Explorers and Rhythm & Movement at the YMCA, I am responsible for the safety and well being of 8 young children between the ages of 5-6. Every day we run fun and safe activities for the children (such as soccer and freeze dance), we also take the children out into the community every day (whether it be to the neighborhood park or the splash pad), and finally, we make sure the children are eating healthy lunches and snacks three times a day. I would say my main responsibility as their counselor is to be a mentor that these children can look up; making sure I demonstrate proper behavior, eating habits, and fitness for them to add into their future. All of these children come from a variety of different backgrounds and behavior patterns so it is important to make sure each child feels safe and integrated with our camps.

Morneau Shepell Summer 2017
Counselor
As a summer counselor at Morneau Shepell, I was responsible for Looking after groups of children within the spectrum (age 3-11). My day usually consisted of taking the children through their daily routine in a proper manner at the facility: supervising them during free play, making sure they eat a balanced diet during lunch/snack periods and taking the children out into the community to play and interact with peers. Due to the children's exceptionalities, it was very important to demonstrate proper behaviors for them to reciprocate and manage the children's behaviors. Working with children with exceptionalities you never what is going to happen (whether they are going to be triggered or have an off day), so it was very important me to take each day as a new day and develop the skills I needed to work in this particular field.

Tanamakoon Summer 2017
Camp Counsellor
Tanamakoon is an all-girls sleepaway camp in Algonquin Park. As a counselor, I was responsible for making sure my group of 12 girls was safe, healthy, active, and developing as a young woman. As a counselor at Tanamakoon you are responsible for your group of young girls through all hours of the day and night: you make sure they wake up and sleep at appropriate times, they are active throughout the day and are eating healthy foods all day. As a counselor you are not only responsible for a group of girls, you are also responsible for running or managing an activity; my activity last summer was archery, I was responsible for the safety of the kids doing archery, making sure every child knew the safety and rule requirements, and of course were arching properly

Mooredale Day Camp Summer 2016
Camp Counsellor

As a Mooredale Day camp counselor, my job was very similar to the one I currently have at the Y. I was responsible for large groups of young children ranging from ages 4-12. As a counselor at Mooredale, It was my job to come up with activities for the kids to do throughout the entire week; counselors were responsible for coming up with the activity, the prep of the activity, running the activity with the children, and the clean up of the activity. At Mooredale the children swam twice every day; I had to make sure they were changed for their lessons and safe while they swam. The children also had "free swim", during this time it was my job to be in the water supervising them as they swam. A huge part of my job was taking the children into the community for field trips and daily play: I had to make sure the space we were going was safe, that the children were safe getting to that space, and that they were being active while at this space.

CO-OP EXPERIENCE:
Parkdale Public School 2016
Library Helper

My Co-op position at Parkdale Public as a library helper was a great experience. As a library helper, I had the tasks of checking in and out books for the children, restocking books onto the shelves in their proper placements, repairing any damaged books, Entering new books into our library computer system, and making sure all of the books are in their proper placements. At the end of every shift, I would conduct a sweep around the library to make sure all of the books were in the proper lettering system and the shelves were tidy.

Queen Victoria Public School 2015
Kindergarten Teacher's Assistant (TA)

As a Kindergarten TA, I was not only responsible for taking the children to and from their different classes (gym, music, art), but I was also responsible for making sure that the children were participating in their classes and had everything they needed to excel. Due to the fact it was a kindergarten class, the children needed extra guidance with everything they did, whether it be cutting their paper or making sure they ate a proper healthy snack. In the class, I was a TA for, there was a young boy within the Autism spectrum. Some of my duties as a TA was to work one on one with this young boy and make sure that he was keeping up with the other children in his class, as well as providing him with any extra tools he may require to excel.

VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE:

Youth Mentor
Greenest City is an organization run out of the community center in my neighborhood, their goal is to provide children with an afterschool program that teaches them about how to keep our earth green and using food that grows from our earth. Each week I would designate 3 hours of my day to pick vegetables with the children that we would later use to make our food. As a youth mentor, I was responsible for assisting the children with the prep of the food and making sure they were using any utensils properly and safely. Another role as a youth mentor at the community was to guide the children into making healthy life choices for their future.
