Letter to the family

Dear Host Family,
I’m excited for the opportunity to explain a little more about myself and how I might be able to support you and your family. My name is Grace . My brother and I were born and raised in Portland, Oregon here in the United States by our parents. My dad is a retired police officer now teaching high school math. My mom was a dental assistants who worked specifically with kids with special needs before becoming a stay at home mom. After watching both my parents happily work in the first response, educational, and medical industries, I knew that I’d also like to work to make people’s lives better. Being raised alongside my brother who has autism, I think I’m particularly skilled at adapting to other people’s needs.

Since graduating high school, and before heading to college, I’ve been working as an aid for kids with disabilities. I love my job. Helping to foster their potential and preserve their health so that they can have the space to become fully-rounded, happy, successful people means the world to me. As a child, I had an amazing nanny who I still have a relationship with to this day. She played such an integral role in shaping me. She taught me so much about how take care of myself and be a happy person. She now has kids of her own.

I’d love to be an au pair. Working with kids and being able to see the world all at once would be an amazing opportunity. I can’t imagine a better way to spend my time as I figure out the rest of my life.

I know that I want to go to college, but I want to be very thoughtful and deliberate in the choices that I make for my future. I don’t want to get invested in something that I’m not passionate about. I know I want to work with kids, I’m just not such in what capacity. I’ve considered speech pathology and child psychology, but am still considering all my options.

Thank you for taking time to read more about me and I hope to hear from you!

Sincerely,
Grace

Experience

I’ve been working in childcare for about a year now. I work one-on-one with kids with special needs. I work primarily in preschools and community centers.

I would love to combine my love of working with kids with my love of traveling through au pairing. Being an au pair sounds like an amazing opportunity to expand my knowledge of working with kids while simultaneously getting to experience new cultures.
