I have always loved being around and taking care of children. They are so lively and enjoyable to be around. I grew up as the youngest of three. My mother had 7 siblings and my father had 8, so I have always been involved in taking care and entertaining children. I started officially babysitting when I was 12 and I still continue to babysit. My first official babysitting job was a 2-year-old girl. I also babysat for a 6-year-old boy and his 9-year-old sister. My last Summer job was actually for three summers in a row. It was for an 8-year-old boy and a 10-year-old boy. I looked forward to seeing the children everyday and loved spending my time with them. I am very responsible and trustworthy. You can be sure that your child will be in good hands and will be well taken care of. I can provide references upon request.

For someone of my age, my experience in childcare is exceptional. I have provided childcare for families of varying dynamics, lifestyles, races, schedules and needs. I have experience with children with disabilities and special needs that required constant supervision and attention such as severe Epilepsy, Down Syndrome and Autism. I have served as a mentor for younger children with and without behavioral issues. As a mentor I helped to instill concepts such as the following: goal setting, organization, appropriate behaviors, creating and maintaining friendships, self-confidence and self-sufficiency. I have experience providing before school care with responsibilities including drop-off, upholding breakfast, dress and hair/teeth routines, and packing school lunches and backpacks. My experience in after school care include pick-up, transportation to practice/lessons, handwashing, homework, outside/play time, dinner & clean-up, bathtime and bedtime. Not only have I overseen homework completion, but I have also provided tutoring in subjects such as bible, spelling, reading, elementary math, algebra, history and health. I have also been a housekeeper for several years. I recognize how important it is to have a mess-free and sanitary environment when raising a family. In addition to my paid experience, I am also a big sister to five siblings. My siblings' ages range from 3 to 14. I have two-three year old brothers. My life as a sister has allowed me to work with multiples and experience double the fun! My busy and active family with working parents has given me the opportunity to spend plenty of time providing childcare for my silly siblings. I wouldn't have it any other way! Aside from my firsthand experience, my mother and aunt previously owned a daycare and preschool and are currently employed as the early childcare providers at Johnson County Christian Academy. Through their dedication to childcare, I've learned how to abide by health codes and child safety regulations, sustain exemplary curriculum and ensure a nutritious food program. My experience and versatility will allow me to cater to your family's needs.

I have 4 years experience in the public school system as a teacher's aide to young children with special needs. There, I learned a lot about being consistent in discipline. My first 2 years was in an early childhood special needs classroom and the latter 2 years was in a behavior disorders classroom. In addition, I have at least 3 years of substitute teaching experience. In northern Thailand, I was a 'foster' mom to 2 orphaned high school girls for 6 months. I provided all of their material needs, mentored, disciplined, counseled them and advocated for their needs with newly acquired Thai language skills. While they were at school, I worked with the poorest of the poor, migrant workers kids from Burma. I taught them Bible songs, English, hygiene and administered daily baths and first aid. I have also babysat children on part-time basis for parents date nights over the years.
