Hi - My name is Stefanie and I'm a recent graduate of Monroe college. I've been working with kids since I was 15 and love it. I started by watching my neighbors three daughters who were at the time 6 months, 4 and 7. I simply enjoy spending time with children. I pride myself on being able to play and act goofy with the kids, yet still have them listen and respect me. I love taking children to interactive & fun activities such as the park, zoo, plays, etc., But I can also spend the day at home coloring, dancing, and playing eye spy or painting nails. It's very easy for me to connect with kids. Keeping the child's well-being is something I take very seriously. I'm a healthy balance of an easy going/patient attitude, and assertive when needed. I understand the importance of my role, and I'm willing to take on that responsibility. In my free time, I love listening to relaxing music, reading and cooking.
