I am currently a student at the University of Houston studying psychology with a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. I have been taking care of many different children over the last 5 years that have taught me how to love, play, and nurture better as I continue to babysit/ nanny. I have taken care of children with special needs which has taught me how to be more patient and understanding in listening to their needs and also what they thrive in doing while I take care of them. I have been babysitting for a family with a child with Type 1 diabetes and they have taught me about the different tools they use and need in order to help regulate levels, and they have taught me what to do if his levels are too high or too low. I helped tutor/ homeschool a child with special needs (age 7) for about 6 months and loved that experience. I am available this summer and fall in the late afternoons and evening, as I will be in class most mornings. My classes start around 10:30 am, so some early mornings are free as well if needed. I am free on fridays starting August 12th all day.
