22.85 / hour

I started babysitting when I was 15, usually just for my neighbors. I would watch their children after they got out of elementary school for about 2-3 hours. At 16 I got a job for an After-care Program, working with 3-6 year olds, I worked this job for 2 years. Through that same company I worked for the summer camp, for 4 summers. Throughout this time I was babysitting on a consistent basis, for parents I met through the after-care program; these children ranged from ages 1-8. The summers of 2010 and 2011, I was a nanny for a family of three aged 7-10. On occasion I would also take care of the family's neighbor's 2 children aged 10 and 12. On my days off during the week in the 2011 summer I would help another family by taking care of 3 girls aged 7-12. For 5 months in the spring of 2011 I was a tutor/youth worker at a community center, that was near my university in Virginia. At the center we would work with all ages of children, most of the children were aged 6-16. Beginning in the fall of 2011 until the present, I have been babysitting/nannying for a family of 2 children aged 2 and 5. Most times (including my present position), when I babysit and nanny I have to take and pick up the children from activities such as camps, sports, school pick ups, birthday parties, and other things that need to get to; due to that I am very used to being able to pay attention to driving while still being aware of what the children are doing in the car. Also when I take care of children I love to do fun, creative activities, trying to stay away from television and video game as much as possible.

Prior to the nanny experience, I have worked as an aftercare teacher and summer camp counselor for the duration of almost 2 year between 2 locations. At the first location I worked primarily with 2-5 year old children planning lessons and activities, monitoring behavior and maintaining a safe environment. My next location required me to work with elementary school age children doing much of the same tasks, but at a level more appropriate for their age. The two jobs have given me a broad range of age experience. I most enjoy witnessing the positive impact the care of a teacher can provide. While children need structure and monitoring, they also need positive relationships and support. My past experience has included all of these things. As I have made a difference in the children's lives, they have also made a difference in mine.
