I grew up helping to care for my younger siblings (They were 8 and 9 years younger than me). I would babysit them frequently. I was a Mother's helper when I was in middle school, with multiple families that would call me regularly. Many of them not only asking me to babysit for the night, but asking for me to accompany them on vacations to watch their children. The families I would babysit for had up to 4 children under the age of 12 in the household. In high school I took a childcare class, which is the reason I decided I wanted to work with children for the rest of my life! I am a psychology major, social welfare minor, with an education certificate. While attending UMBC, I took on a babysitting job for one of the college professors a few times a week for 3-4 hours at a time. The child was 3 months old when I started. I continued this, until my last year, when I started my internship in an elementary school for credits. I am now finishing my second year as a cecil county second grade teacher. I love this age and love working with my students. I could not imagine doing anything else with my life!

I used to babysit for all the neighborhood moms and for the moms at the massage school I went to, I fall in love with all the kids I babysit for. Kids have always seem to put a smile on my face. I love playing outside with them do arts and crafts or helping them with their homework. Taking them to the park or museums. Fun places where they can learn new things but still be kids doing it and the mothers loved that I tired them out for bed at night.
