I am an outgoing, free spirited person. I love the outdoors and my beagle. Now to the really important stuff. :) I have worked with children in many settings. I started babysitting when I was 14 years old. I have worked with kids through camps, daycares, and volunteered through various organizations. Some of the reasons I enjoy working with children are that it's rewarding and I know that I'm appreciated. I came to this realization because when I'm outside of work I will see some of the kids I've taken care of and they still remember the fun things we did or want to run up and give me a hug. That's what it's all about for me, yeah it corny but it's the true. I would like to think that I have had a positive influence on some kids lives. I know that they have done that for me. So what I can offer you is an experienced, caring, fun-loving person, that will be a positive role model for your children. I will l treat your children with respect and cherish them.

I have babysitted for a few families on weekends in the past 5 years off and on. Mainly played with them, fed them dinner and put them to bed and cleaned up afterwards. I also would work in the nursery at church and take care the infants.

I've always been told I'm great with kids, even the little ones that don't like to talk much always end up getting comfortable around me. I've always taken care of friends' children that are toddlers. I love a clean environment so your house will be beautiful. I'm also going back to school so hopefully our schedules will be perfect for each others. Thank you for your time.
