Kelsi’s Bio

     I have been caring for children in a paid capacity since I was in middle school, and absolutely love it.  I have worked at an orphanage in Brazil and the Boys and Girls Club, and most recently as a waterfront director / swim teacher / cabin counselor at a summer camp in rural Pennsylvania.  Children are a joy to be around, and I would someday love to have a family of my own.  I believe it is the responsibility of the nanny to be able to communicate effectively with the parents of the child / children, work according to their wishes for their children, and act responsibly and safely with children.  I am energetic, cheerful, very well organized, honest, proactive, and have no problem helping out with household chores.
     I believe in treating all children as individuals, with respect and courtesy.  I feel that rules are a good framework for parenting/nannying, but that one must be prepared for children to make mistakes.  I have found positive reinforcement is an effective way to encourage good behavior, and that patience is requisite when dealing with children.  I respect that each parent has unique preferences regarding household discipline, but I personally do not believe that physical punishment is in any way appropriate as a method for disciplining children.       I enjoy working on arts and crafts projects with children, as it encourages them to be creative and express themselves in new ways.  I also think that time spent outside is very important for a child's physical and emotional development.  I do not use the television as a means of distracting children or as a substitute for proper care; rather, reading, singing songs, building forts, putting on plays, etc. are all wonderful activities that children enjoy.  Children should be listened to, loved, and their self-esteem bolstered.  When interacting with children, a sense of humor is a necessity.  I am looking forward to working with a great family!
