Sarah E. - Seeking Work in Wasilla

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

Hello my name is Sarah. I have worked with children for over ten years, both as a babysitter and a paid city employee. Throughout high school and college I happily spent my time as a camp counselor, lifeguard and after-school care provider. A normal day usually consisted of 10-14 children within my care for 8 hours. However, even with such large groups, I was able to get to know each child's own interests and personalities. I can happily say that I have never run into a past camper at the grocery store and not known their name! With each year of care, I shared many experiences that were fun for myself, the children and their parents. I developed wonderful connections with families that have continued to last well beyond those summer and school months.

Hello! Coming from a big family, I’ve been surrounded with children ages ranging from one month old to eight years old and up my whole life. My relatives have had me watch over their kids countless times since I was about 13 years old.

I have also had experience with nannying through several nanny jobs throughout my high school summers. I am also First Aid and CPR certified through a high school course I took my senior year.
