Letter to the family

Hello! I'm Grace, I'm 18 and currently living in northern California where I virtually attend CSU channel islands. I love working with kids and hope to one day become an elementary teacher either in the US or abroad. I want to gain more experience in working with children and I feel that becoming an au pair is a great way to do so while also experiencing the culture of a new country. In the past, I’ve worked with kids from infancy through elementary school and have found something special about each age group. I’m currently enrolled in an early childhood studies class and am fascinated with the development of children. As live-in help, I’m prepared to cook, clean, do laundry and whatever else your family may need from me. I actually really enjoy cleaning so I would have no problem doing so. I consider myself a responsible and trustworthy person and I hope that I can prove to be very helpful in caring for your children.

Experience

While I have never been an Au Pair before, I’ve worked countless hours with children. I spent time during high school tutoring dyslexic elementary students on how to better read and write. I also spent 2 hours a week working at a preschool for around a year until the pandemic forced me to stop. On top of that, I often look after my young nieces (1 and 4) while my sister and her husband work. From preschool drop off/pick up, naptime, lunch and dinner, and just keeping them entertained, I’ve loved being able to make it easier on my sister while just having fun, even though the tantrums and dirty diapers. I feel that becoming an au pair is a great way to fulfil my wish to work with children while also allowing me to experience life in a new country. With college currently being completely virtual, I want to take this time to gain real working and life experience.
