I am a mom! First time mom but have raised my sisters and I currently work at a school K-3 graders.I have two younger sisters which I helped raise. My mother and father worked full time jobs different shifts while i was taking care of my new born sister and my 5 year old sister. I did this till hey were old enough to dress and feed themselves but even then I still had to be after them. I come from a big family of which I am one of the oldest so that meant I did lots of baby-sitting. When I started high school is when I stopped baby-sitting. But my Senior year I got the opportunity to work as an assistant teacher and a near by elementary school. There I helped with grading,tutoring,playing with the kids during breaks, and havin lunch wih them. I have taught in vacation bible school for the past five years every summer. I was the music director. I was in charge of putting on a big special muscial perfomance to wrap up each summer. I am Social work graduate student currently. I have done my practicum with children for my undergrad and graduate degree. I had the privilege to nanny for a family in Illinois as needed for about 3 years. Mostly summers.

I started babysitting children when I was 10 and I have done so ever since. I was a nanny to a family of 4 children for 2 years. I grew up in a huge family and have 2 boys of my own (ages 4 and 6) so I have been around lots of children for my entire life. Children are my passion and I look forward to hopefully getting to know yours!
