During my time at the YMCA I was able to gain experience in becoming comfortable with instructing large and smaller sessions. The opportunity to work with great directors allowed my growth in administrative setting as well. My fellow coworkers made this journey most memorable, as there work ethic and personalities , allowed the job to be exciting.
I worked part-time and it was a really good opportunity for a first job. Everyone was very kind and helpful when I first started. They walked me through how everything worked and the expectations for taking care of the children we were watching. We would all work together to make sure all the children were accounted for and took turns in different sections of the play area so we could interact with all the children and get to know them.
