Bethany C. - Seeking Work in Evanston

My primary childcare experience came through a girl I babysat from when she was an infant into middle school. While her schedule fluctuated, I would often have her over for a full weekend to take care of her when her mom was out of town. Other times, I would be with her for the day. Since most of this was done in high school, or the times I was home during the summer from college it was not always consistent. Yet, in many ways I felt like I saw her grow up through the experience. In some ways, it was a challenge. She had behavioral issues, but I learned how to deal with those better in my time of caring for her. Outside of that experience, I have done a lot childcare with the church I grew up in. For a few years, I worked with the weekly children's club, watching kids in the nursery. I also worked in the nursery periodically during the church services. Besides that, I watched many kids from Kindergarten to Second grade by volunteering with VBS for 6 years as well as being a camp counselor for our church's overnight camp a couple summers. I went on to be a camp counselor for a full summer after graduating high school. These are my most notable childcare experiences, but I have also babysat other families from time to time.

I'm a fun, friendly & responsible person with more than 2 years of experience. The main reason I love taking care of children, is the tremendous amount of love you feel once they get used to you and spend more and more time with you. Being from Namibia, and pronouncing certain things differently, you realize just how special their little minds are once they repeat the funny things you say.

I'd love to meet a family I can work for on a regular basis and build a trusting relationship with.
