Jennifer’s Bio

I have been babysitting for friends and family since I was but a child myself. My nephew was born 2 months after my son (now 12), and I often had both of them for the day. It was not unusual for me to nurse my son while also feeding my nephew, bathe them together, or rock with both of them in my lap. I have 2 nieces (18mo, 2 yrs) that I help care for, and, on the other side of the family 2 nieces and a nephew (7-14 yrs) that I often watch and take on outings with my son. I have too many specific babysitting experiences to list them all here, but I hope this gives you an idea of the range of my experiences.
 
While in college, I spent countless hours volunteering in classrooms. I then started work as a childcare attendant at a parent education based co-op preschool, where I later became a teacher. I moved on to being a substitute teacher and Mad Science instructor. These positions have allowed me to work with a wide range of children (including those with special needs) in various settings.
 
I love children and am looking for a position where I can build deep, long term relationships. I firmly believe that all children are different and that each child is different depending on the situation. I understand that no one method will always work and believe in taking an individual approach. I love getting down and playing with children on their level. I know that all children need a certain amount of down time but also believe that keeping them busy and engaged is very important as boredom can often lead to mischief or misbehaving.
