    My favorite job was part time waitress at a retirement home. Hanging out with the retirees was a blast!

    Being an “Auntie” and “Godmommy”...because these children are such a blessing!

    My favorite job was working as a nanny for a couple middle school girls. It was fun because the girls were old enough that they really just needed to be entertained and not cared for so we spent three summers just having fun and going places together!

    My most favorite job was working at a convenient store BP. The interaction with the customers and over time the relationship I build with them. They become family.

    My favorite job is teaching children Birth-K. Children are beautiful and want to learn. It is rewarding to watch them learn new things.
