Hello! My name is Joi and I am recent College graduate from Scripps College in Claremont, CA. I have a lot of experience working with children and I have recently accepted a Fulbright Grant to teach English to Primary students in Malaysia in 2014. I have 10+ years of babysitting experience working with children ages 4months-10 years. I have also spent the past 4 summers working as a camp counselor in Shandaken, New York. At camp I am responsible for living in a bunk and caring for 10 girls ranging from ages 7-9years. I enjoy outdoors activities and reading with children. During high school I also volunteered for three months in a special education classroom were I assisted in activities and one-on-one tutoring in addition to volunteering at a Daycare center were I assisted teachers in the toddler room (kids age 1 - 4). Last year I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Ecuador and spend three weeks teaching English to children between ages 6 - 10. I have an extremely flexible scheduele this fall as my grant in Malaysia does not begin until January 2014. Please contact me if I can provide you and your family with any more information.

The last children I babysat for were two boys, Sam and Louie. Sam is 3 and Louie is 2. They are the cutest, most energetic boys I have ever met and I wish more than anything I could continue babysitting them. I actually worked at a restaurant with their mother which is where she offered me the job. Usually I would babysit while both her and her husband were at work or at the gym during both day and night. I have also babysat for the majority of children that live on my street at home. These children ranged from two 5 year old twin girls, a three child family whose children's ages ranged from 2-8 and an only child who is 7. Every one of these children were completely different but I enjoyed my time with each one.

For the past few years I've been experiencing great fun and joy with the children I work with at a local daycare center, where I communicate kids as both a teacher and nanny. I've done everything from changing diapers to helping with English homework within the same day. my experience working with children who have difficult cases either at home or otherwise has made me very equipped to deal with any circumstance I am faced with.
