Hi there! My name is Michelle and I have recently moved to the Elk Grove area. In-between house hunting with my husband and taking care of my family, I'm looking for part-time, local work that will contribute positively to my new neighbors. I am CPR certified for all ages, responsible, and all about safety.
My most recent position was as office administrator for the Anova Center for Education, a school for autism and learning differences. Before my time in the office, I worked as a behavior assistant with Anova. I have experience working with ages 4-18 and I am trained in the implementation of behavioral and instructional methodologies.
While I was going to school to complete my Office Assistant Certification, I worked for Santa Rosa JC as a Peer Assisted Learning Specialist. As a PAL(s), I would attend Algebra II classes, lead private tutoring sessions, and model what it takes to pass, which lead to an increased success rate of the course.
I have been working with children, both tutoring and babysitting, for over 15 years. I have experience working exclusively for single families and I have done many sporadic sitting jobs for people around town. I am able to be fun while maintaining the expectations of myself and the family. I have a clean driving record and a safe, reliable, car.
Under the right circumstances, I am comfortable driving children to where they need to be. Under the right circumstances, I am comfortable toileting, however, I don't have much experience. I am comfortable with most pets. I am willing to meet very big dogs and reptiles to see if I would be a good fit as a sitter. I am an average cook and I can do light cleaning for your family.
It is important to me to be present, not only as a sitter to your family, but as an individual. I will never be on my phone when I am driving your children. I will not use my phone unless necessary while sitting your children. I don't smoke or do drugs. I will always be aware of safety and I am skilled in anticipating risk.
I would love to meet families in the Elk Grove/Laguna area. Please contact me to see if we would be a good fit together. Thanks!
