I have been "caring" for people for most of my life. I have always interacted well with my elders. I was taught to be kind to them and treat them with the respect that they deserve. I am compassionate,considerate & caring. My Mother was the president of Senior Citizens of Florissant for 20 years and I use to help with the Craft Fairs and Field Trips etc. and always enjoyed it. Theres so much to learn from them. Their experiences and wisdom. I worked at Fontain Woods Nursing Home when I was in High School in and after Graduation as a Nurses Aide in 1972,3 & 4. (we didn't need certification then) I drove a school bus for Special Needs Children for 10 years and Hazelwood for 1. I had private Clients during most of this time including my own parents. I'll admit that I do become attached but to me this is a job of compassion. If you're not that type of person this isn't your kind of job. I'm proud to have raised 3 children. Mostly on my own and they have never had problems with drugs, drinking or other trouble with the law. I'm a good person and so are they. (that might not mean much to some) but it does to me. Anyone would say, I'll do anything I can to help someone even though I'v gotten burned several times. I overlook it for another. I have 5 dogs. A Mother,Father and 3 Daughters because there are so many others without homes that I kept the ones I am responsible for. (our female was suppose to be spayed) I love animals! Thats me! I hope you will consider me for employment. T
