My child experience is both extensive and diverse. First and foremost I am a proud father of three amazing children. My wife and I are raising two daughters Emma (age 10), who has Aspersers and Sensory Processing Disorder, Madelyn (age 6) and Samuel (age 2). Currently, I am an accomplished teacher where I have made a positive impact on my student's social development and demonstrated tremendous gains in my student's academic proficiency. Prior to my current position, I successfully student taught at the third grade level and interned in a first grade classroom. While working towards my Elementary Education degree, I honed my craft as a professional educator working as a substitute teacher for many years where I have worked with children from grades K-12 from various socioeconomic communities. This past summer, I worked at a children's center for youths living with emotional impairments as well as cognitive impairments but more importantly served as a source of hope, care, and treatment to Michigan's abused, neglected, and at-risk children. Prior to my experience as a Professional Educator, I was the Assistant Camp Director where I was able to expertly enrich the lives of countless individuals ranging from ages six through twelve years old. In addition I have worked in numerous camp settings as an Outdoor Education Instructor, Camp Counselor and Assistant Program Director for thousands of campers ages five through seventeen years old. I have also worked as a counselor at a non-profit therapy and wellness center which served children with orthopedic, speech, hearing, and vision disabilities. Lastly, I held the position of the Director of Extended Day in which I oversaw the care of many children from the first grade through the eighth grade.

Hello my names Kellie, I'm 19 I've been babysitting for about 6 years now. From newborns to preteens. I have a car and I'm willing to drive a little ways for a job. I'm CPR certified and just spent last summer working in a Schools program and this summer in NC working with at risk youth at a camp.

Babysitting is something I love doing because everyday is different. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

I have had wonderful past experience! The last family I babysat for moved out of state to relocate fir the husband's career. I babysat for them for 2 years and loved their children as if they were my own! I cleaned their home, made dinner (breakfast of lunch depending upon what time it was) for when they returned home. I ALWAYS keep what I call the "nanny diaries". In the journal entries I would include everything I did from helping with homework, getting kids ready for school to what time I feed the dog.

In high school, I was a nanny for my mom's work friend who had the most amazing 6 year old. I got her off the bus, helped with homework, fed her dinner, and then played until it was time for bath and bed. Then I stayed with her while her mom worked 3rd shift. This lasted for a year until the moms life took a turn and she moved away. Immediately after graduation I started working at a grocery store and stayed there for 3 years but I was not happy there so so went back to the one thing I loved, my nanny job. I made a care.com profile and that's where I found the jobs that made my love for children grow. I was a nanny full-time between 3 wonderful families. My first family (there 1 year) had a 5yr old. I picked her up from the bus stop and brought her home, I made sure she finished her lunch had a snack and did her homework. lastly is her shower time and of course play. My second family had a 2yr old and a 4yr old my main focus was with the 2 yr old because the 4yr old left for daycare in the morning. I did watch both on the few weekends I worked. I was in charge of feeding both breakfast and snack. I played and taught. My last responsibilities included bath time and putting them down for a nap. My last family was my weekend one with 1yr old, I was in charge of preparing his breakfast and lunch which i also fed him. I kept him entertained of course teaching him as well. My last responsibilities included his bath and nap as well. all the families I worked for I tried my best to keep the house, especially clean so the parents could enjoy time with their children instead of worrying about the house (dishes, laundry, sweeping/mopping/vacuuming).
