Hello, My name is Emily and I am currently attending Northern Illinois University. I am majoring in Elementary Education and in May of 2017, I will officially have teaching licensure. I have worked with young children since I was young child. My mother ran a daycare program through our home, so I have been surrounded by young ones my whole life. It was not until my teenage years that I starting babysitting and creating meaningful memories with many different families and children. Shortly after, I began working for the YMCA and became an after-school care councilor. I co-ran a small program in an elementary school where I worked with students from ages K-8th grade. Here, I created meaningful activities and helped students one-on-one with homework or school related materials. I was in this position for around 3 years, it also allowed me to transfer into a YMCA summer camp councilor, where I spent my summer with children from ages 7-11 and created long lasting summer memories.

I am enrolled in the Elementary Education Program at Northern Illinois University, I am currently a Junior and will graduate in May of 2017.

I also have many text books on hand to execute proper lesson plans for each child. Being able to tutor young students with reading and phonics skills will make a huge impact with my future and career.
