Carissa S. - Seeking Work in Hagerstown

14.28 / hour
Full-time hours

During high school, I babysat for great families that I met through my own family. I did not babysit frequently due to a full school and extra-curriculars schedule, but enjoyed it when I did. I do not have experience with infants, and would feel much more comfortable caring for toddlers and above. I was a dance teacher and camp counselor throughout college and after. I absolutely loved my time in both of these roles. I felt I could connect one on one with students at times which I truly loved.

I have been babysitting since age 15. That puts me at almost 10 years of experience. I love being around children. I am a big craft maker and enjoy being busy with the kids I babysit. I like taking them for walks and exploring the outdoors. I also am very helpful with their homework. It's fun to see them get excited about learning and reading, ect. I have been a lifeguard at a private pool for 10 years as well. I have babysat a lot of children from that pool. Sometimes the pool becomes really expensive day care when parents drop their children off. Therefore I am well qualified.

I have been working with children since I was 15 years old, mostly in a daycare setting. I started out babysitting for my neighbor's 3 children ages 3, 6 & 7, and volunteering to help in the 2 year old classroom and schoolage at the daycare where my mother worked. I taught swim lessons to infants through 8 year olds for 4 years at the YMCA in Carroll County, as well as teaching private lessons at the YMCA and at private homes. I have worked for daycares with all age groups (infants 3 weeks up to school age 5th grade) as an assistant teacher or substitute, as well as teaching an after school program to half-day kindergarteners and the head teacher in the school age classroom for 1 year. I was a nanny for 2 boys aged 4 and 7 for 3 months following our departure from the daycare setting.
