I am constantly evolving my experience with special needs as my youngest niece has Down syndrome. The network of support and her amazing personality really has opened our eyes to a new world. I'm very comfortable with children of all ages and have babysat ages ranging from newborn to 14 years with countless different families. I have worked in my local churches children's program for 5 years and am now an independent Sunday School teacher for ages 3-5. During my senior year of high school, I also participated in the preschool as a teacher's aide so I have certification with education curriculum as well. Safety is my top priority as I am CPR, First Aid, and nearly a CNA! Don't hesitate to give me a call with any questions you may have and my hourly rate is very negotiable. I look forward to meeting you and your children!
