Ashley  C. - Seeking Work in La Mirada

11.22 / hour

I come from a small town in which I babysat for numerous families within our area. I first started babysitting in eighth grade, because my math teacher saw my level of responsibility and compassion and knew that I would be a good fit for her children. I have babysat for this same family for over eight years now and would consider them to be very close friends of mine. From this, I have babysat for numerous other teachers, for other employers I have had in the past, and for many people within my church. In all, I have probably babysat for around fifteen families throughout my time in high school.

I am a young, energetic, insanely patient, organized individual with a passion for child care. I pretty much raised myself and I'm sure that's the reason for the devotion I have towards children. I always want to make sure that I am the positive influence in their lives and that they know they are appreciated and respected. I have a way of making children feel at ease but still keeping a certain level of respect because I know I am the adult and need to stay responsible no matter what. I am very attentive and love every detail of this job, from rolling around in dirt for fun to reading them a bedtime story. I will very much appreciate an employer who can give me a chance to live out what I am so very passionate about.
