I'm an elementary school teacher looking for some work during the summer and possibly longer. For the past 5 years I have worked in an elementary school with many different children, I actually specialize in working with behavior problems because I'm calm and extremely patient. Before I began teaching, I was the personal Medical Assistant of an Orthopedic Trauma Surgeon for 5 years. I really enjoy working with people, it is very rewarding to me. When I was a young adult, I used to take care of my grandmother who had rheumatoid arthritis and eventually was unable to take care of herself. I have so much compassion for humankind (pets too!!), and it would truly be an honor to care for your loved ones.
