What I liked

I enjoyed spending time with the children and ensuring that they spent their summer in a safe, fun, and active environment. I also enjoyed studying how their undeveloped minds work and gaining insight as to how different a child's mind is compared to a fully developed adult's.

What I wish was different

I wish the job was longer, however, it is only a summer job that served as an internship for my Psychology degree.


If you don't enjoy spending time with kids, do not pick a profession whether it be temporary or not surrounded by children. Children's experiences in their childhood impact them greatly and if you aren't going to be a positive contribution to those experiences you should stay out of the way. If you do enjoy working with children, you probably don't understand just how much you will shape and impact their life as someone they look up to.
