Hi, my name is Taylor and I recently graduated from the University of Iowa in May 2013. I hold a bachelors degree in psychology and human relations. I am starting nursing school in the fall and am looking for a summer job. I believe I would be a great fit for this position. I have passed babysitting experience including caring for two girls ages 10 and 11, I was a caretaker for a teenage girl with special needs for three summers, and I have also been responsible for driving a 13 year old girl from school to her extracurricular activities while I attended Iowa. I have worked at xx the last three summers as a youth coach. I have also worked at the xx as a summer camp counselor for one summer. My schedule is very flexible and I have a clean driving record. I love being outdoors and playing sports. Growing up I played soccer, basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, and gymnastics. I have one older brother who taught me how to play football and baseball so I am always willing to try new things. I also love to read and do arts and crafts. I am always trying to be creative whether it is making a tie blanket or finding something on Pinterest to recreate.

Hi! My name is Julia and I love caring for children more than anything. I am a Graphic Design student at Harper College and I graduated from xx High School. I knew I wanted to work with and care for children at a very young age. At the age of 8 I was a mothers helper to multiple families in my neighborhood. When I was 10 my little sister was born and I gained tons of experience helping take care of her, and then babysitting her every day when my mom went back to work when she was about 3 months old. I babysat here and there throughout middle school, and in high school I volunteered at Devonshire Elementary School in Des Plaines. I was an assistant teacher in a special class for children with autism for about 6 months and then in a normal classroom setting for about a year. I enjoy doing lot’s of different activities with kids including arts and crafts, games, reading out loud, singing songs, nature walks, and simple kid-friendly cooking. I like to put an educational spin on activities whenever I can. I’ve always found that children are more interested and willing to learn when they are learning through games and creative, hands-on activities. I believe in making learning fun! I have my own car and am willing to drive a considerable distance. My specialty is children ages 3 months to 10 years.

I cared my younger 3 brothers since they were born, especially the twins. The twins I have cared for since birth, they are now 19 years of age. When my nephew was born the mother was a very hard sleeper and a full-time worker and single mom. I was unemployed at that time so I cared for him while she was away and sleeping for the most part. Every morning at 3 am m nephew was up crying for his bottle. He is now 4 years old and in his crazy toddler stage my family helps her care him.
