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!

I am an experienced nanny/ mother's helper who has a passion for entertaining and caring for others, especially children. I am a continuing student at the local community college and an aspiring Doula. I will be studying to be a birth & postpartum doula which means I will be helping mother's and families before birth, during labor, and serveral weeks-months after their babies are born. I will be like a paid caregiver with all the knowledge of an experienced mother/grandmother and more! While in school and during my training I am hoping to find a caregiving job that will help support me financially and help me continue my work with children. :)

I am a family of nine, I have 4 younger siblings under me that I spend a lot of time watching while my parents work. Since I was younger I've always enjoyed the company of younger kids because their all so smart and unique in their own ways and you'll be amazed how much kids know and can teach u as much as you teach them. During summers instead of getting an actual summer job I would always rather see who needed their kids watched and I would just spend my summers babysitting for any one who needed my services.

I do not own a car, but I do have ways to get to places!
