Letter to the family

Hello!
My name is Kira and I'm from the United States. I am 21 years old. I recently graduated from university with a Bachelor of Science in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and an Asian Studies Minor. and thrilled to start my post-graduate journey as an au pair. My friends and family would describe me as hard-working, enthusiastic, and caring. My direct family consists of my parents, my two older sisters, my brother-in-law, and my one-year-old nephew and myself. Our family is very close and are very communicative with each other, even long distance. Since my sisters' family lives with my parents and myself, I am often responsible for the care of my nephew. I also have had years of experience with child care both inside and outside the classroom. I am a certified lifeguard and have a First Aid, EAD, and CPR certification. I have taught gymnastics, swimming and assisted children with online learning during the pandemic period. Its nice to meet you!

Experience

I come from a family of educators and that influence helped me decide that I wanted to be a teacher and pursued a degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Addtionally, my love for caring and teaching children have always been with me due to my family of educators, especially my mother who is a former preschool and kindergarten teacher. I have come to understand that teaching isn't bound by classroom walls and many skills as a teacher can be used in an au pair position as well. I love children because they are so curious about the world around them and how it all functions.Children ask questions that no adult would ever imagine to ask. Additionally, having another trusted adult is helpful for families who work or need extra help around the house. Wishing to pursue a position as a au pair post graduate, due to the recent events in America I have decided that now is the best time start my career at an au pair.
