I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old for children of all ages. I have shadowed a first grade classroom for a year and worked in Little Dukes preschool for two years. In addition, I have worked with special needs children and children with severe food allergies. I absolutely adore kids, playing sports (basketball, volleyball, soccer, swimming), and doing crafts. I have even coached basketball and volleyball camps as well as teach swim lessons for the last 3 years. I have 2 summers of experience as a full-time summer nanny (40+ hours a week) for families with 2 children. I tutored them as well as organize fun activities for us to do each week. I have observed and helped out in many different elementary schools as a future elementary education teacher too!
