Hourly rate12.54 / hour

I have sat for children ages newborn to teenagers for most of my life; although I prefer younger children, I will consider older children. I enjoy reading and playing board games with children and as a former dancer, I am quite animated and don't mind getting on the floor and playing with children. I also make awesome chocolate chip cookies! I have worked in a special needs facility, as the Program Assistant, with special needs children ranging from autism to down syndrome to special instruction who were verbal and non-verbal. Although, my main priority was "paperwork" I was very hands on with the children while gleaning from the instructors. Also, I have worked with homeless men in a shelter setting, so I kind of have a social/human service heart of compassion. I have had pets (dogs and cats) all of my life and currently have a dog and a cat, so I am not afraid of dogs, but cats, I only tolerate. I have time and availability to be of assistance to someone who may benefit from my services. I believe children have their own opinions and should be able to express them in a respectful manner. However, I do not tolerate disrespect, hitting, spitting or name calling. I do own a car and have a clean driving record along with a clean criminal background. Thank you for reading a little about me. I'm happy to share more upon request. Selina

I have always enjoyed being around children. I started babysitting at the age of 10 for a family friend who had a toddler. I really enjoyed it so I began babysitting for another friend with three children. I continued to babysit for these families on the weekends and during the summer. Through high school I was a lifeguard and swim teacher. During college I joined a teen mentoring program where I helped troubled junior high students. I just graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in Elementary Education. I have been in a Kindergarten, 1st, and multiple 4th grade classes. Helping children learn and grow is my passion.
