My name is Alexis Tookes I’m a 20 year old nursing major. I have had multiple arrangements with family over the past 2 years. I’ve worked at Thornwood High School with their child development program which involved a real daycare for children 3-5, teaching/observing the children. I have 3 years experience with newborns, as I was a volunteer at Albany State. I’m very sweet, attentive, fun, and caring. I love to have a good time but I’m big on academic fun. I know how to cook child friendly meals, clean, and I also have personal transportation for the families that need pick up’s/drop offs. I can’t wait to work with you all.

I have developed the ability to work with different people no matter how strong of a personality they may have. Being that I'm in high school I've had times where I had to deal with different attitudes at one time, but I've always found a way to make it work. I also used to babysit and pet sit on the weekends, so multitasking is no problem for me. Both high school and babysitting have strengthened my attention span, communication skills, and ability to work under pressure. I've worked for families that had pets and sometime pets with more then one child. I have no problem working with more then one child and pets.

I am a friendly college student who currently is studying Political Science at UIC. I am fluent in English as well as Polish. My passion , however , has always been taking care of children. I have an instant bond with them , ( as I too have a bit of childlike wonder in me ) and I love to mentor kids to being the very best they can be. My heart is a huge one and I have a great amount of patience. Showing love and kindness is of utmost importance, as I was raised in this tradition.
