Letter to the family

Dear hopeful host family,

My name is Natalya or Mari (short for Marisol) as most family members opt. to call me. I am 27 years old and looking for a change of pace and scenery for this upcoming 2017 year.
Lately I have been working as a substitute teacher mostly at the local high school and on occasion at an elementary school in a nearby city. Teaching is not the
profession I plan on going into but is something that I have grown fond of, is something I have become very good at, and fellow peers including my mother (an educator of 26 years) often comment that teaching comes natural to me. The actual profession I seek is in the field of Criminal Justice specifically Forensic Science.
I obtained my first Bachelor in Fine Art in 2012 and in late 2013 began the process of a second Bachelor but this time in Science which I am currently chopping away at and am very close to finishing.
Before finishing my degree and embarking on an exciting professional life I thought I would take advantage of this upcoming year and try out being an Au Pair somewhere else not in Texas to gather some new perspective. I take everything in my life seriously my education as well as my work life mean everything to me so do my family and my dog Lilo.
I plan to bring those values of professionalism and family to share and experience with your family while also understanding the fundamentals of fun. My host family should know that I am family oriented so I would have no issues acclimating well to that type of environment. I can get comfortable in almost any setting I feel welcomed in to, I love to learn about different cultures, regions, languages, styles of teaching (public or home school).
The experience of an Au Pair abroad would surely allow me to experience many wonderful things by meeting new people and going to new places.
I am looking forward to getting to know your family and share memories that create life long bonds.

Experience

As a member of a large family I have had the opportunity to watch over younger cousins of mine and watch them grow up so fast. I have cared for many family members in the absence of parents while they are at work or home or just spending time with them.
I enjoy running errands and doing odd jobs; help complete tasks your family is unable to do during work breaks and can't wait until the weekend to do.
For instance picking up last minute birthday gifts, tidying up the house for last minute visitors, picking up groceries, collecting kids from school or daycare or even bringing lunch to the house.
As long as it is appropriate and does not put my life in danger it may be done.
As an Au pair abroad the concept of family and responsibility carries over anywhere and is a language understood anywhere. The fact that I am able to experience new places yet understand that I can help another family by using my experiences with my family is comforting.
I know that I am confident enough to perform any childcare responsibilities for your family that would ensure an efficient completed task and should any questions arise I would not hesitate to ask so I know that I am doing anything in my power to excel at my duty as an Au Pair.
