Full-time hours

I have been caring for children since I was 9 years old. My stepmother was sick so I took care of my half brother often. I have experiences with bathing, feeding, and more. I am young, but many adults say that I have a motherly personality, and I am asked to babysit children often. I do not tolerate misbehavior, and I often use time outs as punishments. Reading to children is very important to me, so feel free to request books for me to bring.

I am extremely experienced in working with multiple children at once, and have some experience with children with disabilities/allergies. Finally, I worked at from April 2010- August 2012.
