Andrea B. - Seeking Work in Williamsburg

Full-time hours

I am a 24 year old graduate of Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) with a degree in exercise science and nutrition. I also took a few courses in human development and psychology. I previously worked with two very rambunctious boys ages 6 and 8. I have worked with children ages 1 - 14 in my previous work as a swim instructor and camp counselor. I am a very organized person who loves to cook. I prefer cooking a homemade meal to feeding kids chicken nuggets and pizza every night. If those are staples in your child's diet (more than once a week) we may not a fit for each other. I do realize that in a time crunch nuggets are quick and child friendly but only occasionally. I have lots of fun and healthy recipes that my boys love! I would be more than happy to share them with your family! I recently started a garden of my own in hopes that the kids will find joy in growing, harvesting and eating healthy fruits and vegetables! I enjoy taking children on fun outings around town. I prefer to limit screen time (tv/ipads/computer/video games). Ideally I would like the children to play outside or with each other than to sit and stare at a screen. Not fun for me and not desirable for small growing minds! I enjoy bike rides, swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, dancing, singing, painting, coloring, crafts, gardening, photography and science experiments! Although I no longer work as a swim instructor I would be happy to work with your children on their swimming as well as pass along water safety skills important to child safety around water. I am currently practicing Tae Kwon Do and would love to continue to do so or introduce the sport to my new family! ***I do have a dog that will need to relocate with me with me so please keep that in mind while reviewing my profile.

I am currently a stay-at-home mom of a sweet, well-mannered two-year-old boy who loves to stay active, read, and learn. I worked in my church when I was younger, providing care for infants and toddlers (including changing diapers, feeding, playing, and supervising). I also occasionally babysit my neighbor's grandson (4 years old) for 30 minutes to an hour a day, once or twice a week.

I have spent much of my life volunteering and working with kids in a variety of settings. I have been a part of Big Brothers Big Sisters in Williamsburg for three years, and have tutored elementary school students as well as taught music lessons since I was 14. I love to read, play games, do arts and crafts, and really encourage any activities that stimulate the mind and imagination.
