I do all kinds of things! I check in and check out families, lean rooms and do household chores when necessary, interact with guests, and do administrative tasks like updating spreadsheets, creating classroom presentations, making flyers, etc.


Being able to interact and connect with families even though I am only here 4 days per week. As much as I wish these families could go home, some of them have been here for the majority of my time here and it's been so great getting to know them!

What advice would you give?

Try something new! I didn't know that I'd want to work in a non-profit, but have LOVED my experience and am now looking for jobs in a non-profit!!
