Growing up I lived in a tight community with children growing up in every house. I started watching children as a young child myself around the age of 12, I was always considered mature for my age. At that point I was babysitting a wide age group of children. I would take them to the community pool or park, fix them food, play games, and most likely put them to bed and then return home when the parents came home. When I was 16 I started Lifeguarding, so I have experience in CPR and first aid as well, and with that job babysitting jobs and nanny jobs were brought to my attention more and more as the pool season ended. I picked up two babysitting jobs that year and was able to drive then too. I could pick the kids up from school and drive them to sport practices, and I did the regular things as well. When I was 17, I babysat two little girls for the summer and was asked to go overseas to France with the family so that they could have some days and nights alone. When I was 18, I was a live-in nanny for a man and his ex-wife, I basically was where ever his children were. While at his house I watched over 8, 11, and 14 year old girls and one 15 year old boy. I got everyone up in the morning, made breakfast, drove them to school if they missed the bus, danced in the car and sang music really loud, would go back and clean the house and do laundry, I was also able to work on some online classes for school at this time, I would go get the kids from school take them to friends houses/practices/doctors appt/mall etc., then we'd come home and I would make dinner for the whole family (dad wasn't always there because he travels for work), then we'd play family game/movie/book and we'd go to bed. When I went to the mothers it wasn't as intensive because the mother was home often and wanted to make the dinners and do things with the kids, so I mainly cleaned. I am very organized and like things put away, I tend to be a little OCD about cleanliness, so cleaning wasn't an issue for me. When I was a little over 20 I was a live-in/out nanny for a family of 11, there were 3 teen girls, 2 teen boys, 12 year old girl, and 10, 8, 6 year old boys. That was the most overwhelmed I've been with a job but I managed because the children began to become very helpful. I taught them to put things away, to separate their whites and colors, and to put their dishes in the dish washer. I've dealt with the flu, temper tantrums, homework, and teens sneaking out. I consider myself a nurturing, gracious, protective, reliable, trustworthy, fair, and polite person. I feel like that really shows in my work because all the kids I've ever watched adore me and are usually sad when I leave; and I also love kids in general and can't wait for my own.

I absolutely love children! I have cared for two girls from birth through age 5 from eighth grade through high school.

During highschool, I worked as the 4/5 year old teacher at Vacation Bible School during my summers off. I apprenticed music theatre camps, too, teaching piano and vocal performance to middle school-aged kids. I loved it! During my junior year, I began working at Kumon Learning Center, teaching reading and writing to pre-K through 1st graders. I also babysat for local families, mostly infants through elementary aged. We'd go on outings to the waterpark, library, nature hikes, etc. I believe that children need to spend as much time as possible outdoors, having fun! not in front of the TV. After high school, I moved to Richmond to attend VCU and began working at a Nursery School, where we take care of 8 infants daily. Our responsibilities there include maintaining a happy, safe, and clean environment for the little ones, diaper changes, educational fun, arts and crafts, basic potty training, feeding and etiquette, teaching basic sign languages to be used at mealtimes, and above all, teaching the power of love and compassion at an early age. It's been very inspiring to work with the infant age group. Their purity and propensity to learn everyday forces one to remember the simple joys of life. To say the least, its been the best job I've ever had the honor of having. I'd love to work with children for as long as possible.

I really love each and everyone of the children I have been able to build a close relationship with. My most recent childcare experience is being an assistant nursery school teacher. I have learned so much from the 20 month olds to the five year olds I could honestly talk about each one of them forever! Receiving affection and enthusiasm from the children is so rewarding, and it is an experience that I hope everyone will be able to have one day. Teaching children is amazing and I am so truly excited to watch them grow and progress!

My little brother was born when I was 12 years old and my sisters and I became his multiple mothers. We helped with his care by feeding and bathing him and with general exercise and play. I have been babysitting since I was 14 years old for neighbors and other families in my community. Most of the families I worked for had more than one child and the ages ranged from infant to ten years old. As I've been studying to be an art teacher, I've learned amazing management skills, have a very warm and inviting personality, and am very hands on with learning! I love having craft time with the kids, assisting with homework, and playing outside. When I babysit, I keep the house clean and in order and cook very well. I'm also willing and able to take the kids to museums, swimming pools, and parks.
