I am studying to be a Paraprofessional, this is working with students in a classroom one-on-one or in a big group setting. I have been a babysitter/nanny for 2 children. I have worked in a classroom with 4th - 6th graders, for the past 3 years. I even have worked in a few daycares. I have also been a camp counselor. I love to be creative and come up with fun activities to do with kids. I am a hard worker. I love to cook, bake, if you ask me to bake with the children I am willing to do that. If they have homework I will help out with that too.

Dara responded very quick when I first messaged her. We are on vacation and wanted a sitter so we could get out a few nights on our own. We met before she babysat, was very easy to get along with and was great with our baby. Highly recommend her! We will contact her again if ever in the area 🙂

Dara was great, I needed a last minute sitter because mine had a family emergence. Long and behold Dara was AMAZING with my girls. She came in as if it was not her first time working for us. She of course given the current situation with everything going on was very proactive about knowing our exposer for her own safety. She also herself told us her exposer. She is the most safest person to have had come in for this last minute need for a sitter. If the need came up again where my current sitter could not work, I will most definitely be calling Dara. My girls even said she was a great sitter and would like to have her again if the need came up. She taught them how to bake cookies from scratch, she came with her own games, and just really did everything possible to make it a special day/evening for my girls. I could not say enough AMAZING things about her. Like I said before if the need ever came up where I needed a sitter again, when mine could not work I would ask Dara.
