Hello my name is Jessica Dunnington. I was born and raised in Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. I am 28 years old. I matriculated in 2010 and went to work for my uncle at his Pick n pay but I knew that was not what I wanted to do, so I resigned. For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to work with children. So I decided that I wanted to follow my dream to become an au pair and still till this day it is still my dream job. My family helped me take courses so I could be a qualified as an au pair and the upside was that I could travel the world and still be able to do my job that I love. Once I got all my certificates, I went to Lodi, California for a year. I looked after three wonderful children. They are triplets. When I came back from California, I did not stay long in South Africa because I got another job offer in Saudi Arabia. I packed my bags once again and went on another adventure. My job was to be an English tutor to a young boy but things changed and I became an au pair to him and his young sister. I loved every moment of it. A few years later I decided that we wanted to become an English teacher in China, so in 2018 I did my TEFL course and went to China to teach English. I was at a training school. I only had classes in the afternoon. Teaching in China and being an au pair was the most rewarding things I have done in my life and I would still like to work with children. Through all my experience working with children I have learned that they are amazing and with each day the children of today are becoming so intelligent, which is amazing to see. I believe that we as teachers/ au pairs should do whatever we can to help the children of today because they are our future. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my cover letter.
