  About Me
Dear Family,

I hope this letter finds you in good spirits, and thank you for taking the time to read it. My name is Tess, I am an avid self-learner in so many areas and I have spent about eight years caring for children. I love to cook and dance and explore and read and experience all things that help people grow. I think that my yearning for a healthy body and mind is part of the reason I am so good at helping children grow too. I find that no matter where you come from (or what your dreams are), everyone is looking to connect with their inner child. It's important that every new life is nurtured to the best of the abilities of those around them, and its our communal dutie to do so. I am a very playful, resourceful, experienced and educated young adult that's looking for a stable fit for the next chapter of my life. From my experience in multiple childcare settings, I have come to realize that the best thing for the children I work with is a stronger foundation for a longer period of time. If this is what your family is seeking than I greatly look forward to speaking with you. Please contact me if you would like to receive my resume, references or letter of recommendation.

Thank-you for reading.

To Whom It May Concern, It is my pleasure to recommend Tess Kardos. I have known her for almost three years in my capacity as Manager at Double 'oo'. Tess worked for me on various projects and as a consultant. Based on her work, I would rank her as one of the best employees I have ever had. Tess distinguished herself by consistently going above and beyond the assigned tasks, which she also handled expertly. Tess was tasked with handling missions at every level (from creation to implementation). Her work was exceptionally well thought out and the kids absolutely adored her. Tess is highly intelligent and has superb communication skills with both adults and children of all ages. If I can be of any further assistance, or provide you with any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email (address listed above). Yours Sincerely, Joe Tambasco 416-419-6163
