I come from a very large family so I was raised with knowing how to care for children my entire life. One of my cousins has spina bifida and is wheel chair bound and I have taken care of her many, many times. I also have lived with a family of 4, single Mom who's husband passed away in Iraq to assist her with her 3 children as well as had numerous babysitting positions with different families throughout the years when needed. I previously worked at 2 different after school programs, one in Brooklyn and another in Manhattan with children ranging from five years of age to 12 years of age. Being a part of those programs I also have experience in homework help with grades K-6th. I also have worked for summer programs, one being a stay away camp and another that was a daily program in which included educational activities as well as trips to local parks, museums where we'd take the subway as a program, and extra-curricular like sports and art & crafts. This past November I graduated from college abroad in Sydney, Australia, previous to college I worked for the NYPD and have most recently moved to Massachusetts. I have had classes in CPR as well as had background checks done in which I have been cleared to work children, if necessary I am willing to retake CPR and first aid classes. I do not drive, but am willing to transport via public transportation.

I have a ton of experience with many different families who come from many different ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds. I am really well rounded when it comes to understanding different parenting styles. I'm still in college so I bring a lot of youth and energy to many children and their families. I've dealt with families who's children have 1 or more disabilities. My availability is really open right now as I have not picked classes for the upcoming school year. Please let me know what availability you are looking for. I am also fluent in Spanish and English and a clean driving record. Hope to hear from you soon :)
