Biglerville, PA Nannies

Alyssa B. - Seeking Work in Biglerville

17.14 / hour

I greatly enjoy working with children! So much so that I have an annual sleepover at my house where all the girls ages 6+ from my congregation are invited to come. It has been a joy every time! Job-wise, I have been a babysitter at various times for friends and family, and from September 2003 to April 2004 I babysat a four year old every weekday afternoon and was on-call. In addition, I have been heavily involved in the local 4-H group and have taught classes for groups of children as large as 10 and ranging from 8-14 years old. Finally, I also teach Bible classes at my local congregation. While this is not "childcare," it does involve working with children. I have taught ages 2-14.
