  About Me
 
This June I expect to graduate from McGill University with a B. A. in English literature and art history. I am looking for a summer job. I have lived in Montreal for three years and am quite familiar with the city. Before that, I moved from place to place with my parents who are federal employees. Because of my transient upbringing, travel became one of my favourite hobbies in addition to reading, writing, drawing, painting, photography, cooking and crafting. Also because of my parents' work lives, I was responsible for helping raise my younger siblings. It was through them that I discovered my natural aptitude and passion for working with children. I became a babysitter for the first time at fourteen. Since then, I have worked closely with a number of families. I have also been a summer camp counsellor and assistant teacher. My approach to child care is personalized in accordance with the child's age and ability (my experience encompasses every stage of development from infancy to late teens and includes care for children with special needs). I am Red Cross certified in first aid, CPR and the Heimlich manoeuvre and have completed basic education in child psychology. I am a creative, enthusiastic and empathetic person. I am reliable for a regular, standing time slot but also flexible and available in a snap should you only need someone to look over your little ones once for a few hours. I look forward to meeting you and your family.
