I am 17 years old and a senior in high school. I have been babysitting since I was 13, and to this day, it's the only job I love to do. I have worked with children of all ages, from infants to preteens. I find this job as a nanny extremely rewarding because I get to create close bonds with the children I babysit and present myself in a positive light so I can be a good role model for them.
