Career Spotlight

When you become a teacher, it is important to know what kind of school and classroom environment you would want to work with.I would be most interested in working at a private Christian school where I can teach the children about the Good News of Christ while in a classroom setting. I would like to either work at WCGS or at a preschool similar to the atmosphere of WCGS since that is where I grew up going and my experience there was terrific!

Company Brief

I think that I would be a great person for this job because I have a lot of experience babysitting and I have two little sisters that I take care of a lot. I also have a lot of patience when it comes to impatient and crazy children. It is also important for me to train kids to live a God-fearing life from their youngest years.
