I am not one to just sit around and be boring I love to play and have fun to! I have always have very good responses from the parents that i have babysat for in the past.
Ashlee - Seeking Work in Mount Pleasant

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

In my twenty-three years, I have a considerable amount of childcare experience. Starting out young, I participated in babysitting clinics to gain the knowledge needed to care for young children. Since I loved being around to create a positive impact in the lives of children, I volunteered as a bible schoolteacher, in addition to coaching summer girls little league softball teams. I have conducted many softball pitching camps and lessons in order to help young girls develop the necessary skills to become successful in the game in which I love. I was a certified lifeguard at my hometown public swimming pool, where I also taught private, individual swimming lessons to children of all ages, including adults. I loved this line of work; almost as much as I loved babysitting for friends of the family and friends from my church family. With the start of my college career, I chose to go into the field of special education. However, due to my lifelong dream of becoming a nurse, I decided to switch gears. Four years later, here I am with a year left until obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing. My desire is to become a Labor and Delivery or Pediatrics nurse, due to my love of children!
