I have been babysitting since I was 10 and have worked full-time with children with behavioral disorders at a residential treatment center for two years as well. I have also babysat for older children while their parents went away for up to a week at a time, making sure that they got to school and their sports practices on time. In the past, I worked as a teacher in the toddler room at a child care center and had the opportunity to develop crafts and games to play with children ages 15 months to 2 years. I have also worked as an intern at an adoption agency and have experience working with foster children and adoption.

I was a live in care taker for a family friend. I cared for her house and children while she was away for work (usually 3-6 days a week). I made sure children got homework done, took medication(when needed), ate full meals, got to school and after-school activities, and put to bed. During weekends I would make sure we did different and active things so we were not stuck inside watching t.v. the whole day.
