I also collaborated on other smaller projects like creating two reading lists for children and adults. In addition to this, I worked alongside Children’s Specialists at two different branches to coordinate different programs for children and teens.
– In recent years I have worked with different families and taken care up to three children at a time with the age range being three months up to twelve years old.
