Hello! My name is Dallas Swan. I am currently a junior in college studying Elementary Education with minors in Reading and Child Development. My passions include music, playing games, and being active. I do have my own car and a clean driving record. If wanted, I could provide you with a copy of my driving record. I have been living on my own at college, so I am comfortable in the kitchen cooking meals, as well as running errands and cleaning up. I grew up always having a dog as well as other various pets throughout the years, so I am comfortable around animals. I am CPR/First Aid certified for Infants, Children, and Adults. I was the nanny for a six month old boy my freshmen year of high school, and since then all of my jobs have involved working with children. I worked as a summer camp counselor and Sports Camp director for a local Rec Center for four years. Most recently, I was the director for xx Summer Camp for children aged 6-12. This job entailed planning activities, handling registration, preparing snacks, and overseeing discipline and medication matters. I would love the opportunity to speak with you more about this position and to give you the chance to get to know me better, and if all goes well, the opportunity to work for you and your family.

I have been babysitting since age 14. The two families I most often babysat for both had four children. One family had four girls, an eight year old, five year old twins, and an infant, all girls. The other family had a ten year old, eight year old, five year old, and three year old, three girls and a boy. My babysitting duties consisted of feeding the children lunch or dinner, helping with homework, reading books to the children, playing games and sports, doing arts and crafts, helping with bath time, and putting the children to bed. When I was seventeen I was a nanny for a three month old baby boy. My duties as a nanny were to regulate his nap schedule, feed him bottles and baby food, change diapers and clothes, read to the baby, and play with him. When I was eighteen I was a camp counselor for a summer day camp at a Recreation Center for children ages seven to twelve. My responsibilities here were to plan activities, manage games, prepare snacks, discipline when necessary, and supervise on field trips.

I have been babysitting for families in my neighborhood since I was 11. When I was a freshmen in high school I started working at a daycare in a fitness gym. I worked with all ages there. I also found another family there that I babysat for regularly on the weekends. I worked at the day care for over six years and then had to quit because of college and needing a higher paying job. I have many references for child care. I have also lived in Chicago as a nanny. I have an 8 year old son and just found out I am expecting my second baby next January. I am hoping to find a job where I can also bring my baby with.
