Amanda L. - Seeking Work in Gurnee

11.42 / hour
Full-time hours

I have been taking care of children since I was 11 years old. My parents divorced when I was very young and I had to step up and care for my toddler brother. Even though I was young myself, it taught me responsibility and I had no choice but to grow up. Besides taking care of my brother I would also babysit for cousins, neighbors, and family friends. I also feel like I have a great amount of experience because when I was in middle school my mom became pregnant with my little half brother. Having a mother who worked full-time at a restaurant was extremely hard for our family. Again I had to help raise another brother. I almost consider him (7 years old now) to be more as my son, than my little brother. I grew up cooking, cleaning, bathing, and chauffeuring my younger siblings. I also took some Child Development classes throughout high school, which included CPR certification. I don't have much experience with children who have special needs but I did help my older sister take care of a 2-year-old girl who suffered from Cerebral palsy. I am also willing to learn more and expand my experience. I plan on getting my college degree in either Child Development or Family and Child Studies. I can also provide references on request.

I wanted to start by saying thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. :-) I like to teach kids the basics, numbers, letters, go to the park and manners very important. I like to make sure kids eat healthy but also know they are just like us, sometimes they just don't crave broccoli :-) I seem to understand kids very well and that's why I want to work with kids, to help them grow and develop their own personality.
