Default How Many Years Of Experience

So I was in a college class a few nights ago and we did this. I thought it would be fun to do here. it will display in the end the total number of years of experience we all have. My class had over 900 years of experience.

Of course this form could be a never ending answer, but here is how it goes

Everyone respond with the number of years of experience that you have working with kids. YOu can not count parenting as experience.

You can count, teaching, daycare, coaching, nanny, babysitting, etc...


when you type your answer, be sure to add the previous posters answer to yours

so if i say 1 year
next poster says 10 years

then type total=11



Ok Ill start

I have 19 years

I worked fulltime summers from the time I was 13. Cared for one to four children, between 9 months and 9 years old. During the school year, anywhere from 20-50 hours per week. Don't make me add that on

3 years childcare through church (as an employee, not volunteer work)
1 year after school program
2 years as an assistant at a family childcare
3 years as a nanny
4 years at a daycare/preschool center
Almost 1 year with my own family childcare
...a few of these overlap...
My total is 9 years (stared when I was 15 now I'm 24)

That brings us to 343

Oh gosh, I have to think.

I am guessing we can include volunteer work?

Substituting for teacher's aides part time in public school system about 3 years; working part time in elementary and middle schools 2 years; Girl Scout leader 1 year; Cub Scout leader 1 year; school volunteer creating a newspaper club for 5th graders 2years; full time assistant in a Montessori preschool about 4 years; summer only in home daycare 2
years; moved to Florida so back to teaching assistant in public school 1 year; started home daycare full time 18 years. Total 31 years

412+31=443

4 years home daycare + 1 year as a nanny (I'm not counting my babysitting experience as a teenager or helping my mom raise my twin brothers when I was still living at home).

So that brings us to 626 years!

I did paid care (nightly) from the age of 11, and family care from age 8. But I am 49, so if we are only counting above 18, that gives me 31 years. All FCC.

So, 897+31= 928
