I have been babysitting since I was eleven years old and I will turn twenty seven this summer, so I have had many years of experience! I nannied for a family when I was in high school. They had two daughters, one was 8 when I started and the other was 11. I nannied for them for three summers before the family felt comfortable leaving the older daughter at home by herself. I nannied for another family for a summer while I was in college. One daughter was 4 and the other was 8. I have a younger brother whom I babysat many times when we were younger, so I have experience with both boys and girls. I also served as a summer league swim coach for my neighborhood swim team for two summers. I worked with children ages 6 to 15. I am currently a high school English teacher. You could definitely say my passion is working with and helping children.

I am a graduate of the University of Delaware, where I majored in Spanish Education with a concentration in Foreign Languages in Elementary Schools. During college, I was a nanny for two families. The children I cared for ranged in age from 8 months to 14 years old. My duties included pick-ups and drop-offs, meal preparation, homework help, errands, and of course lots of fun games, crafts, and adventures. After college, I moved abroad to teach English as a Second Language. I taught in Peru for 6 months followed by a 6 month contract in South Korea. At these positions, I taught students ages 4-16. At my most recent position, I taught Kindergarten and Elementary. I managed a classroom of up to 13 students at one time. My main role was English Teacher, but I was also responsible for creating fun, exciting, and safe science experiments crafts, and games for the Kindergarten classes.

I have a BA in psychology and social work degree. I have volunteered with pre-teens and teenagers for many years. And I am a grandmother of twelve grandchildren ages from 21 to 3. I have cared for all of them from birth to teenage years at one time or another. Including one grandson who is a special needs child. Most recently I cared my youngest grandson from six weeks old until he was three years old fulltime, nine hours a day five days a week and his two older brothers after school. I curently care for them part-time and I also watch a one year old girl a few days a week. I'm available Monday through Friday early morning until 6:30 p.m. Also, I can be flexible with times and days and weekly rates are negotiable. During the times I care for them I include reading, educational games, outdoor activities like going for walks, to the park to play and in the summer we play water games and go to the community pool. Because I still watch my grandson and the one year old girl a few times a week I prefer to watch them in my home. Reference available upon request.
