8.57 / hour
Full-time hours

I started babysitting my next door neighbor's 3-year-old daughter at the age of 10. I have a large extended family and was often left in charge of my younger cousins growing up (ranging from ages 6mo-12y). I currently work at a daycare with a classfull of 2-year-olds. As much as I love and enjoy being with the vhildren at this job, my coworkers and superior are not very positive and have made it an extremely difficult work environment, considering the pay. I have decided I would love to work with children in a more one-on-one setting and really be able to help out with whatever I can.
