Letter to the family

This past year, I've been working as an au pair with a lovely family by the west of Paris. I would love to continue working as am au pair, experiencing the French culture, and improving my french. I have loved the experience of working with children. I am an open-minded, dedicated, and responsible individual and I love to bake, hike, and read in my free time. Over the past view years, I've been a tutor to school age children, worked as a camp counsellor, and taught swimming skills to a wide age range of children. My favourite activities with children are playing games, making crafts, and going to the park or beach. I am excited to begin (another) new adventure and getting to know new people!

Experience

For the past year, I've been working as an au pair for three lovely children. I am responsible for their drop off and pick up from school, preparing weekday dinners, and driving them to their activities. Prior to this, I began working with children at 12 years old when I began babysitting. At age 15, I became a certified swim instructor. I worked as a swim instructor for five years, where I taught swimming skills both privately and in group settings to a wide array of children. In 2018, I worked at a day care, where I mostly supervised babies and toddlers, but also gained experience with school-age children. As an aquatics camp counsellor, I specialized with the age 6 cohort, however I was responsible for additional supervision of children age 7-12 when needed. In addition to employment opportunites, I love to work with children on a volunteer basis as well. For all four years at university, I was a mentor/tutor to at-risk school-age children for the Kaleidoscope program. This program involved splitting our one-on-one time with our buddies between assisting the understanding of school content with activities to facilitate social skills. As well, I was a founding and executive member of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Queen's Chapter, which focused on the facilitation of mentorships between children and adults to encourage positive adult figures for children facing barriers in the community.
