I have been babysitting for families since I was in middle school. The children's ages have ranged anywhere from infants to young teenagers. I spent a summer as a nanny for a family of 2 children, ages 10 and 13. I have spent many months in Jamaica, living and volunteering at a Children's Home, caring for the children overseas. Last summer I also worked for an organization called YouthWorks, where I planned and implemented a summer long Kids Club Program for a community in Bayou La Batre, Alabama. I have recently graduated from Judson University in Elgin, IL with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I have had multiple student teaching experiences during my 4 years of college.

I have had amazing relationships with the children I have taken care of in the past. It has always been hard for us to separate each other. We would always get the most out of a day, and everything we did together was just super fun, from doing home work to going to parks, to taking bathes, to going to bed. It was all a pleasure for all of us. :)
