  About Me
My name is Laura and I am an International Student here in Canada pursuing my Masters' degree in Health Administration at Fairleigh Dickinson University. I am married to a wonderful man and have no children yet (I prefer to wait until my graduation).
Back in Brazil, I am a pediatric dentist and Children's Choir conductor at the church. I love children, especially taking care of them, giving them proper education and watch them grow in happiness. At home, my parents were very present and brought me up with lots of music, happiness and love, which I carry until these days with me. We always had dogs in our family, teaching us how to care for the animals, and their importance to our life.
During my attendance, I have developed several techniques to calm them down, let them very comfortable in the dentist chair. I wear the children's shoes for that and ask myself: what would make me calmer right now? Why am I scared? And that would always guide me to let them know that everything is fine and they could trust me. At the end of the consult, these little patients would always smile and give me a lot of hugs, very thankfully, which used to made my day.
Being a children's choir conductor gave me all the skills to teach and discipline kids with all the love and tenderness they need. I developed patience and kindness to let them free to learn on their own time, and the firmness to not let their distractions to harm their education. Besides that, developing presentations, plays, and musicals gave me all the creativity abilities to educate kids in a playful way, which expands their comprehension.

  Work Experience & Education Background
0 years experience, 0 references
I do not have the specific childcare work experience, being a nanny or a housekeeper. However, I have dealth with children during my pediatrics dental career, taking care of them, knowing how to calm them down, and how to let them know they can trust you. It developed in me a sense of playful teaching, which helps kids to learn and understand some life aspects.
I had been children's choir conductor for 7 years, which developed my patience and empathy to teach music to children, taking care of their education, and leading their creative side.
Besides that, I love being with children and especially assure that they are well and happy. For me, it would be a pleasure to have further training to make sure that the childcare is the best one it can possibly be.
