I have been raising my daughter on my own since the day she was born. I homeschool my daughter and have raised her with good biblical morals, to be loving and giving to others...which she does on her own without my 2 cents.

I am the oldest of five children! Being the oldest, I have helped care for four younger siblings, one of which has DS, all two years apart. I have been Red Cross babysitter certified since 12 years old, which includes CPR and First Aid training. My most recent babysitting job was caring for three children ages 6, 4 and 2. I helped with 4-year-old with potty training and I have changed lots of poopy diapers! I cooked, cleaned and drove them to WalMart and to the park! I have a large, reliable, four door car to provide safe transportation for your children. I especially love being outdoors. I really enjoy eating healthy. I can prepare healthy, well-balanced meals. I am a former Purdue student, currently attending Ivy Tech online, so I am more available than most. I currently nanny for 5-month-old twin boys and a family of four-ages 5, 4, 2, and 8 months. However, I'm still completely available several days a week and am looking to pick up one extra job. I would love to babysit or nanny for you long-term! I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon!

I recently graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Purdue University. I was previously a nanny to two boys, 7 and 2 years old, for one year. I was responsible for feeding them, taking the older boy to after school activities, working on homework with the older boy, and the younger boy with different games and activities. I have had many babysitting jobs all throughout high school and college, as well as working in my church's nursery for over 7 years, which includes infants through preschool age children. I was also a preschool dance instructor for 6 years. I love to be outside, going for walks around a neighborhood, swimming, or simply playing catch in the backyard. I also love to cook and read. Since I have a degree in Elementary Education I feel that I am more than capable of helping your children with any type of school they might have, or to help your younger children get ready for school.

Throughout middle school and high school I babysat for neighbors' and friends' children ages 1 to 10. During high school I worked at a daycare center after school. I was responsible for the school-aged classroom. I planned activities, snack time, and watched over the children until they were picked up. I was also in other classrooms at this daycare ranging in age from 2 to 12. During the summers of 2008, 2009 and 2010 I was a nanny for two boys ages 8 and 10. I was responsible for breakfast, lunch, and sometimes dinner each day. The boys and I went to the park, played games, etc. throughout the day. I am now a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I have had classroom experience each semester with elementary aged students.
