I have 21 years of childcare exp. My first childcare job after college, was as a live out nanny. It is through this work that I learned I wanted to work with children. I went to school to be a photographer; I was working at a office at a studio at the time of my part time nanny job. I left the studio and started working in a daycare center.I worked for two years there in the two year old room. After I moved to CT to be closer to my future husband David. I continued to work in Daycare. I worked in a local Daycare center, for three years, with all age groups. I became licensed as daycare provider in my home for the next 15 years. I have decided I no longer wanted to open my home to childcare. I chose to run a children's art center here in Bethel. That did not work out. So I decided to work outside my home as a nanny. I like the idea of working one one one with a family.
I am 42 years old. I grew up in a small town an hour south of Rochester NY. I have 4 siblings, I am the baby. My parents were foster parents. They took in 69 foster children in 26 years. They had 3 biological children, and adopted my brother, and later me. So I often say that I have 72 siblings. David and I meet in college in RI, in 1987 we were friends for six years then we dated. We got married in Sep.1995. We have two boys Joe 12, and Julian 8. We like to hike,swim and take our cameras with us at all times. I also like to scrapbook, work with arts and crafts, and paint.
My name is Monica Rodriguez. I am originally from Queens, New York but moved to New Fairfield, Connecticut ten years ago. I live with my mom, dad, and only sister. I completed my freshmen year of college at Naugatuck Valley Community College where my core focus was in the Human Services field. While I was enrolled there, I served in the Human Services Club, volunteering at blood drives and other community events. Later, I transferred to Western Connecticut State University in the Spring of 2011. My plan is to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. I chose Social Work because I enjoy helping people and believe I am a personable human being. I aspire to be accepted into Graduate School where I will work to acquire a Master’s degree in Social Work or a Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling. I hope one day to be employed in a school system or medical setting.
Hi! My name is Jennifer Peragine and I'm a graduate student at Tufts University studying to be a School Psychologist. I grew up in Bergen County, New Jersey and moved to New York City to complete my undergraduate education at NYU. I spent the past two years in Cambridge, MA until moving to Danbury to complete an internship in the North Salem public schools.
I love traveling, biking, and being outdoors. I enjoy all types of sports, but mostly tennis, basketball, and running. Art is one of my favorite hobbies and I recently became a crossword puzzle fanatic.
I've been tutoring throughout my high school and college careers. My goal in working with students is to help them feel good about learning and themselves. Teaching a child to be resilient will help them learn and succeed in school (socially and academically), as well as in life.
My name is Marc Drouin and I was born in Montreal, Canada. When I was 17 years old, I moved to Massena New York to play hockey and learn English. I was recruited with a full scholarship to Kent State University where I majored in Mathematics. Upon graduating from Cleveland State University with a bachelor degree in Mathematics and a teaching license, I moved to New York City to teach Mathematics at the high school level. I haven been teaching for ten years now and I still love teaching like the first day I started this profession. I also have a Master Degree in Mathematic Education and a minor in Physics. I am still going to school to complete a Doctorate degree in education.
