Since the age 14 I have been babysitting children ages 2 months to 13 years. I have taken babysitting classes hosted by the Red Cross, and I am certified in infant, child and adult CPR and first -aid. I also have about 1 year experience working in a pre-school. In the pre-school I worked with babies and children, 6 weeks to 4 years. There I learned many tactics in teaching while caring for many different personalities at once. After having my daughter in 2009, I have and always will be researching, studying and reading most everything I need to know about children and how to educate them through play and ways of soft, effective discipline. My daughter has taught me a lot about patience and how I, myself, can be her best teacher. I can't help but think because of my studying I do, my daughter is top of her preschool class :) If you believe I would be a great fit for you and your family and want to contact me, please provide me with your email so I can send you my resume (if you are interested). Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to hearing back from you and your family soon. You could never be disappointed if my daughter and I were to become a part of your family.
