Hi Diamond-Jay!

I have held numerous positions related to child and family studies. I will list below my experiences to help you have a sense of some different jobs!

- Camp Counselor for Elementary to Middle School students: This was a summer position I did in high school which helped to develop my interests in working with youth.

- Preschool Teacher for Jumpstart, an AmeriCorps Organization: When I went to college, I gained experience working with bilingual preschool students in Santa Ana.

- Daycare teacher: I worked with mostly with preschoolers and kindergartners aged 3-5.

- High School Outreach Facilitator: In college, I was a part of a club that partnered with a local high school. We planned activities and taught the high schoolers about applying to college.

- Peer Academic Advisor at the University of California, Irvine School of Education: I worked with undergraduate students to help with academic planning and graduation requirements.

Family Enrollment Counselor: This is my current position for Pearson, the education company. I help families with students in grades K-12 enroll into virtual Connections Academy schools.

This list is only some examples of positions related to children and family studies. There are so many opportunities out there, and I encourage you to gain experience to see what age groups you like to work with!

Good luck!
