Hello wonderful families! I am an experienced, fun-loving and college-educated babysitter and ESL teacher with a purpose. I want to start off and say thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I know how important it is to find the perfect babysitter for your children. I absolutely adored my babysitter when I was younger and I want to be that person for another child and his/her family. A babysitter needs to be a care-giver, teacher and best friend and that’s exactly who I am. I strongly believe that adding psychology to my broadcast journalism degree in college has only improved my understanding of children, their behaviors and strategies in order to have the best experience for everyone involved. ,sa BABYSITTING: I am the oldest of four children so I’ve been taking care of kids since I was 10 years old! I’ve cared for children spanning from infancy Read more to adolescence (14 years old). I started out caring for my younger siblings by doing things like keeping an eye on them for safety, coming up with activities to do (both educational and physical) and also preparing meals and snacks when needed. Along with my siblings, I am fortunate enough that my other family members, neighbors and friends trust me with their children as well. I continue to care and watch over them to this day. TEACHING: I never get tired of diving into the world of children. They are some of the most pure and genuine interactions in my life. Before I started teaching, I was an Emmy-nominated employee at a major sports network, so I am very prepared to handle high-stress and fast-paced situations. I was on the creative side of the network so I always have activities and my imaginative skills ready to go. I am currently an active ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher where I work with international students to help them learn and develop their language and vocabulary skills. We do a lot of lessons/activities that focus on reading, writing and even some critical thinking (depending on the level of the student). I love books and think reading is one of our most valuable gifts. Story-times are so important and one of my favorite things to do because the children get super into it as well. They really hang on to every word you say so you have to make sure you give them a full performance and answer all their questions during the reading. I hope to be a part of your family, let's have the best summer yet!
