What you love most about being an au pair instructor?
The energy and enthusiasm the au pair’s bring to each class. I enjoy hearing about the adventures they have already experienced and I love having the opportunity to introduce them to places they have never heard of before, inspiring them to get out there and explore and helping them start making plans for their travel month.
