Letter to the family

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter––I am so excited to connect with you! My name is Alison and I am from Portland, ME. I am a (soon-to-be) 18 year old girl who is adventurous, enthusiastic, and caring. I enjoy new experiences and would be thrilled to immerse myself into your family.

In June, I will graduate from high school and am planning to take a gap year before I attend college. I will be spending the first 3 months in South America on an expeditionary trip and then am hoping to begin au pairing in January of 2020.

I live with my mom, dad, sister & brother (when they’re home from college) and a dog named Brady. Family is very important to me and because of that, I hope I can serve as more than just child care, I really hope to act as a big sister and role model too. I would love to play an active role in the family system itself.

I have over six years of experience working with children (from nannying and tutoring to coaching youth sports and working at summer camps).

Experience

As I mentioned above, my experience with children is extensive, ranging from being a summer nanny for a 4th grader with down syndrome and babysitting regularly for the past six years. I was also a camp counselor in the summer of 2017 and have coached several youth sports teams (soccer and basketball). I have also taught a handful of kids to swim and am very comfortable in the water--whether that be a pool, a lake or the ocean (I grew up on the Atlantic). Additionally, I am Red Cross and CPR Certified and have my license, so I would be able to help with transportation.

Some skills I'd be happy to share with you:
- A TON of child care experience
- A love for the outdoors, family, kindness, imagination, and FUN
- I've grown up with a dog, so if you have any animals, I would love to take care of them along with your kiddos!
- I've grown up playing sports and would love to pass down my skills/knowledge of these sports to your kids
- Very flexible, reliable and adaptable
- I am organized and like to keep things tidy. Happy to help with any chores around the house!

Logistics:
- As I said, I will be traveling in the fall, so I am hoping to nail down a job starting in January of 2020 before I leave
- I am flexible on starting/ending dates and can stay anywhere from 3-6 months
- I am happy to provide references if that would be helpful
- I am more than willing to do a Skype interview or to call via WhatsApp
