I have babysat since I was in the sixth grade. I was a full time nanny for a week when I was in 11th grade for a family I had babysat for. I have taught children's Bible classes at my church. During my senior year of High School I tutored children at an inner city church once a week. After beginning college, I spent the summers of 2004 and 2005 working at daycare. It is a drop-off daycare center in which I cared for children from six weeks old to 12 years old. I worked approximatly 30 hours a week there each summer. I was also a Preschool teacher . I taught a class of nine 3 and 4 year old children. I also have experience with infants. My parents provide transitional care through the Center for infants and I babysit often. I was a full time nanny for a nine month old little boy for he summer of 2006. Currently, I am employed as an elementary art teacher for public schools and have a bachelor's in art education.

I have worked with children for as long as I can remember! I love everything about them.I started babysitting at the age of 12 and am 23 and still do it all the time! I have multiple families that can provide me with great references! I am a child at heart and love playing with the kids- not just watching them. My idea of free time doesnt include hours of TV when there are so many games to play that can mold a child into such a better person! Not saying that TV is a bad thing by any means just know that Im not going to be the one that suggest it over play! I can turn homework time into a serious yet fun learning experience! I look forward to meeting the right family where Im not looked at as the hired help but as an extended family member!!
