My name is Tracie. I am a current college student at Lake Forest College. I am very interested in this position. I have not had any formal training in taking care of children, however, I have had a great deal of experience babysitting children of all ages through the past 10 years. I have helped significantly in raising my three younger brothers (ages 10, 11, and 15) as well as caring for my twin cousins, now 2, since they were first brought home from the hospital. I have also had experience babysitting for two families of two on a regular basis over the summers and during the school year while in high school. I also regularly babysat for two families of four. I love children and finding new and fun exciting ways to interact and with them. I believe that it is very important to do activities that promote healthy behavior (is outdoor activities like going to parks and beaches or playing in the yard) as well as reading and listening to music and many others that do not include television and computer time. I am also able to do light housekeeping tasks such as laundry, cleaning, and meal prep and clean up.
