All of my memorable and favorite jobs have been with children. I started watching children at the age of thirteen as an after school job for some neighbors down the street. Then at the age of sixteen I got a job at a daycare in the toddler room, I was a caregiver and role model. My responsibilities included feeding them, changing diapers, taking them on walks, teaching them to walk, potty train, talk, shapes, colors, numbers, and how to interact with other children. While working at the daycare I started keeping infants and toddlers for parents when they traveled. In the summer I would work at the daycare during the day and nanny in the evenings for several different families or on weekends when they went out of town. I also worked as a kindergarten teacher at a small private school . As a kindergarten teacher I taught children reading, writing, math, social play, ect. I also have experience as a pre-k teachers assistant in a public school here in OKC. I have nannied for several families which included living with them and being apart of their everyday lives and activities. I have nannied for every age from infant to sixteen years of age. One of my biggest passions in life is working with children. I have also been very active in my church. I taught Sunday school for pre-k and was also a small group leader in our high school youth group. I have also been a camp counselor and have been very involved in mission work. I am very hands on with children and love to engage/ interact with them in learning. I currently have a Bachelors degree in Education but am in the process of finishing up my pre- req classes for a Bachelors in Nursing. I am very energetic, adventurous and love to be outdoors! I also love all sports but my favorite is soccer, I started playing at the age of 5 and played through college. I am very laid back and easy going, but also very organized and clean. I have been blessed to be apart of several wonderful families in the past and look forward to becoming apart of an additional family:)

Hello! I have at least 6 years experience babysitting. Being 3rd in the line of 8 children I have no trouble when it comes to taking care of multiple children at a time. One of my previous jobs included taking care of three children ages 13, 10, and 7 during the summertime. Some of my responsibilities included: meal prep (i love to cook!), pick ups, drop offs, transporting to and from after school activities. I also enjoyed playing board games, outside play: jumping on trampolines, traveling to local parks, bike rides, drawing with chalk, picnics; arts and crafts sessions with popsicle sticks, macaroni, paint, crayons, etc; and also teaching piano. My schedule is very open right now. I have no conflicts whatsoever, so I am able to work whenever you need me to and also on a short notice. I have the passion to work with children and enjoy the part of watching them grow up. Even though I am only 20 years old I take my responsibilities very seriously, I get along with children very well, I am also extremely punctual, and I would assure you of my honesty and integrity.

I started babysitting when I was 11 or 12 years old. I always volunteered for nursery or children's church at my church growing up. I started babysitting for a family with 3 girls when the youngest was born and I babysat them until the youngest started 1st grade. I also had various babysitting jobs throughout middle school, high school, and college. This past summer I nannied for a family that had a two year old girl and a 15 year old girl. The older daughter could not drive so I drove her around to all of her various activities. I also looked after the two year old everyday from 8 am until 7 pm. I am okay with changing diapers or cleaning up other messes. I have two younger brothers that I grew up babysitting so I am really okay with watching girls or boys.

I have had the privilege of taking care of my nephew on numerous occasions. My brother and sister-in law live in TX and I in OK. I have traveled to stay with them and help out when Kelly has had to work and they didn't have a sitter for the week. I have watched him as an infant, changing diapers and feeding. I have traveled with my sister-in-law to take care of my nephew when she had work conferences for her job. I would have Jackson throughout the day and she was with us at night. I even had the privilege of spending a month with them during a summer to watch after Jackson when they didn't have childcare. I have also watched him on spring break. The times i watched him i got him up, fed him breakfast, ensured he took naps, played with him, fed him lunch and then we would play until his mom and dad came home. I have also baby sat for friends of the family. One family had 2 boys and the other family had 2 girls. All 2 kids were under the age of 6. When i watched them it was in the evening and i fed them dinner and then we would read, play games or watch a movie until there parents got home.
