Meet Emily

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hi! My name is Emily Petersen and I live in Hartford, CT. A little about myself... I have been living and working in Hartford as an environmental educator for the past 6 years. In that capacity myself and my co-teacher developed an environmental curriculum based in storybooks and characters we created to engage kids with the world around them (imagine a giant pink body-pillow Wally Worm teaching you about soil as a kindergartner!) I am currently a nursing student at the University of St. Joseph for an accelerated second bachelors degree. I plan to work in a Neo-Natal intensive care unit. I have worked as a nanny and babysitter for children ranging from newborns to 14-year olds and also served as a lifeguard for 5 years. I am first aid and CPR certified. I am an avid cook and do not mind helping out with basic household chores while sitting. Read more I am also a musician, classically trained in both piano and trumpet. I have experience teaching music lessons, as an elementary, middle, high school, and university level educator, as well as a swim instructor. I have worked with children for many years now, serving as a steady babysitter and nanny for six years and on and off for the past fifteen years. I love children and their energy and look forward to learning more about you and your family. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about my experiences and/or qualifications. Thank you!
