I am a certified music teacher and have held several other positions in which I cared for and/or taught young children. Some of these settings include: elementary school, pre-school, Mother's Day Out program, kids programs at church and I also worked as a part-time nanny for two sweet families in Tuscaloosa while I was finishing school last year. I am currently nannying for a family in the Birmingham area but he will soon attend school full time and a nanny will no longer be needed. Daily activities at my current position include meal preparation, book reading, facilitating nap time as well as practicing letters, numbers shapes, etc.. I am also responsible for pre-school pick up, planning outings to the library, zoo, the Mcwane center, parks, play dates as well as visits to other local childen's attractions. I value educational experiences and am an advocate for structure and routine for young children.

I have been a babysitter for almost 8 years now and I love what I do. I have cared for children from infancy to almost 16. I take a hands on approach when it comes ro the children i care for. I would much rather be reading to the children or playing outside with them than sitting in front of the television! I am a very outgoing and easy to get along with individual. This is why I think children ad parents feel comfortable and trust me as a sitter. I also feel that it is important for the parent to trust me as a sitter so I am like to have time to get to know them as well. For me the most rewarding part about babysitting is making new friends not only with the children but the parents also.
