I started babysitting when I was in the 5th grade and immediately loved it. At my local hospital, I took CPR, First Aid, and Babysitting Prep Classes. I have babysat for friends and family members for several years on/off and have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of care giving. I am fascinated by the idiosyncrasies of children and value effective, respectful, and communicative care giving strategies . I attended the Napa Valley College for a few years and did receive an Associate's Degree. I am now enrolled in online classes toward a B. A. in English, but my ultimate goal is a PhD in English with an emphasis in Russian literature. Ideally, I would like to have a full-time and live-in position. To ensure the best care, I think it is essential to work with one family at a time, not only to build a rapport with the children, but also a collaborative relationship with the parent(s).
