I'm a music education major at West Chester University. I have been sitting kids since I was 14 and became Safe Sitter Certified. Not only do I have lots of experience working with different families, but my degree has given me additional professional experiences - including tutoring in poverty stricken school districts as a PEPP Learning Support, going on a mission's trip to Washington D.C. and volunteering at various after school centers, completing at least 75 hours of observation time in public school classrooms, and the list can go on! I have been teaching private music lessons for almost four years. I mostly teach piano lessons, but also teach voice and string lessons. I love teaching private lessons so much, I was able to take some graduate level pedagogy courses last Fall. After I finish my undergraduate degree, I plan on pursuing a career in psychology. Mental health is something I am very passionate about! I am a very creative person, and I use this with my kids - there are so many outlets for creativity, and I think this aspect is so important for kids to explore!

I am a super senior music education major at West Chester University. I have been working with kids for almost ten years in different aspects. Not only have I been Safe Sitter Certified since I was 14, but I have worked with children in tutoring situations, volunteer opportunities, a Washington D.C. missions trip, in college, and as a private music lesson teacher over the past four years. I currently sit part time for a family and love it! I have been with them for almost a year. I plan to eventually change fields and go into psychology. Having an education background and so much experience with children has served great knowledge to me in terms of child psychology. I believe in the power of creativity in play for children. I love creating out of the box fun activities for my kids. From my experiences, they seem to love it! Kids can learn a lot by simply being... kids! I encourage this.
