I've worked for families with children ranging from ages infant to middle-school. I've had experience with both triplets and twins, as well as children with special needs. I've had live-out experience working full-time, as well as during summers with occasional overnights. In the past, I served as a substitute teacher at local schools in addition to teaching Reading, Writing, and Math in an after school program. I also served one year as the interim site coordinator at a community center for at-risk youth and their families. If you think I might be a good fit with your family, I would love to hear from you!
