I have had an interesting and colorful childcare past. I have worked for many years as a babysitter, as well as a mentor. For the most part my experience is with younger children ages one to eight, although in the past three years I have had the opportunity to work with two separate middle-eastern families, one of three girls aged three, eight, and eleven, and the other of 6 boys and girls aged seven, ten, ten, twelve, thirteen, and fourteen. I have become very good at teaching English and running with things on the fly. I most enjoy working with young children, and have a special gift for making children of all ages feel valued and loved, which aids in ensuring there is always a pleasant, happy, and respectful environment in the home.
