I have had many childcare opportunities over the years! I started babysitting at age 12, taught a 4-5 yr old Children’s church class at age 16, taught 4th grade for 2 years, and was a private nanny to 3 kids later. I am now married with 4 great kids of my own and love being a stay-at-home mom. I homeschool my children (1st, 3rd, 5th grades) and enjoy having them around. My husband is a pastor, and I have taught many children’s classes, worked in church nurseries, and even helped start and run a summer camp for teenagers. I truly enjoy caring for children!
