Meet Karen! She is a 25-year-old caregiver with over 500 hours of childcare experience from babysitting, tutoring, teaching, and coaching! She believes she is well-qualified to work with children because she is responsible, caring, and a fast-learner. Would you like your kids to learn a new language? Karen speaks Dutch, some French, and English. She has her Master’s degree in Bioscience Engineering, and is planning to obtaining her teaching degree by June of 2017. She plans to get a job as a teacher in a secondary school, after finishing the au pair program. Karen’s favorite hobbies include camping, swimming, and kayaking. She also likes to dance and travel as much as she can. She wants to become an au pair because she has a desire to live abroad while caring for children. She can’t wait to meet her new host family and learn more about American culture!
