Hi! I am eager to connect with you to see if caring for your children could be a possibility! I am currently pursuing a degree in Elementary Education, and I work as an elementary and middle school aide.
I have countless hours of childcare experience, and have worked with children in many settings from various walks of life. I started babysitting over 5 years ago, I have worked at a summer camp for 3 years, and my work in elementary and middle schools gives me a lot of time to spend with hundreds of children. I've also gained experience with children through different opportunities I've had through college. In addition to the professional experience I've had with children, I've also had many opportunities to work and play with children on a more informal level, as I am the oldest of 8 children.
I love babysitting because it brings me joy to see children learning new things, and having fun as they learn. I believe children are priceless and should be treated with respect and loving kindness.
