Rachel B. - Seeking Work in Woodstock

9.99 / hour

I have been babysitting and nannying for about 8 years, for kids of all ages and in varying numbers. I am the oldest of 8 kids, so not only to I have years of babysitting experience outside of the home, I also spend all of my time at home with a bunch of kids. I also have worked at some summer camps, and at a preschool summer of 2012. I really enjoy playing with and taking care of children, and they really seem to like me, too. I've also grown up doing chores and I am very good at cleaning and organizing. I am a junior at Franciscan University of Steubenville, studying Communication Arts and concentrating in multimedia. I hope to go into graphic design and photography (so I can also take great pictures of your kids, if you'd like!).
