Why I Work Well with Kids

I am an only child who always hoped for siblings, so when I was ten years old and my aunt gave birth to twins, I wanted to spend as much time with them as possible. Now that I am in college, I still make it a priority to spend time with them. I think it is very important to relate to kids based off of your own experiences during childhood. You should never underestimate a child's ability to learn and develop new skills. I am good with kids because I value them as human beings.
