My experience working with children began at a young age when my baby brother was born. Because we are nine years apart, I gained a lot of experience helping my parents: changing diapers, feeding, and consoling a screaming baby. When high school came around, I began babysitting frequently on the weekends for neighborhood children and relatives. I got my first nanny job when I was eighteen, in which I looked after two girls who were nine and twelve for the duration of the summer. On most days, we enjoyed the pleasant weather playing in the backyard, riding bikes, getting ice cream, and going to the pool. In college, I began coaching volleyball for the Riverfront Bruisers. I coached for the 11 and under age group, teaching them fundamentals of volleyball and the importance of teamwork. Because I coached the same group of girls for my first two years of college, I had the pleasure of watching them develop as athletes and as young women. In the summer of 2014, I began working at Little Hands Learning Center. There, I worked primarily in the nursery, but bounced around the other classrooms when help was needed. I gained an immense knowledge of the needs of infants and how to care for multiple young children at one time. Another skill I have acquired from my time at Little Hands is hands on experience with children with disabilities. The two children I worked with were in inclusive classrooms with students their age. Because they are learning in this general education environment, it is easy for them to feel that they are behind the rest of their class and become frustrated. It was important that as their teacher, I made accommodations to their learning style and helped them succeed. I continued working at Little Hands for the past two years, working over the summer and on my breaks from school.

I took care of an 11 year old boy with disabilities as well as two other children, 4 year old and a 7 year old. In addition, I took care of their mother who had huntington disease. I was a live in nanny five days a week who woke the children up for school made breakfast, did the car pooling as well as the shopping and household duties. for the past year an half I was a live-out nanny. I arrived at 8am and took over from there. During the school year I would help the kids get ready, feed them breakfast and walked them to the bus stop. During the time they were in school I took care of the youngest child we would play, cook and I also worked with him on speech, numbers, alphabet and potty training.

I've been babysitting children of all ages for about 5 years now. I love kids, they make me smile and laugh all the time. I have two sister that are 7 and 10 years old. I don't usually watch them because they are in multiple sports but when I do babysit them I always make the most out of it. I always have something planned to do so they aren't sitting at home bored.
