Letter to the family

Hello!

I am Karla, I am 22 years old and I come from California. I am part of a family of four. My parents and my little brother (he is 18, but he is still my little brother anyway) live in the United States. I do not have a big family but I always wanted to have more brothers and sisters. I also have a dog that I miss at home.

My mother tongues are English and Spanish, but I speak French too. This year I finished my studies at the university in the United States. I specialized in the education & study of children and also French. I am an open minded person who likes to try new things. I am also very patient and tolerant, but I also like being active. During my free time, I like experimenting in the kitchen, reading a fiction book, or swimming. One of my passions is to travel. I like exploring cities where I have never been and learning about different cultures.

This year, I am part of the language assistant program in France and I will work part time in a primary school where my role is to teach English to students. In the future, I want to be an English teacher (english as a second language).

I think this experience will bring me closer to my goal as an educator because I can gain more experience working with multilingual children. The relationship will be reciprocal, not only will children learn from me but I will learn from them as well. It will be a valuable experience for me because even though I already speak French, I will know a new culture and a new way of life, just like the children with whom I will work in the future. I want to work as an au pair not only because I like working with children, but also because I want to be part of a family.

I am very happy to start this new experience and look forward to meeting your family!

See you soon,
Karla

Experience

I have four years of experience with children as a babystitter and tutor.

Two years ago, I did my third year of university in Paris. During this year, I worked as an English tutor / babysitter for an agency. I was able to work with two families who had a 3 year old daughter and 2 boys aged 5 and 9 in between. Also, during the summer I took care of a 12 year old girl in the evenings.

In the United States, I was able to have an internship where I worked with students who just arrived in the United States and therefore did not know English. I also worked for tutoring programs and was an assistant in a nursery school during my last year at the university.
