Heather’s Bio

I began baby-sitting when I was in sixth grade, and have been baby-sitting ever since. Besides baby-sitting for neighborhood children, I also watched my three nieces after school and on date nights as needed. During the summer, I would watch two of my nieces every day, until they got old enough to stay home alone. My most recent job was two years ago doing after school care for a 7 year old. But the most important job I've ever had, is being the mother to my 3 year old daughter, Ashley.

I also have a lot of experience with children besides baby-sitting. I have always been an active part of my nieces' lives. In high school, besides baby-sitting, I worked at the day care center in my high school and was a day camp counselor. In college, I volunteered as a mentor to an at-risk child, and worked at the UCONN preschool. My college degree was in human development and family relations with a concentration in childhood and adolescence. After college, I volunteered as a Big Sister with the Big Brother/Big Sister program. I was with my little sister from the time she was 6, until she turned 13 and thought she was too old for a big sister. My first job out of college was working as a preschool teacher for three years, followed by 11 years of working as a special education paraprofessional in an elementary school. I have also spent time as a tutor, both after school and during the summer. I also volunteered to teach Sunday school for a couple of years.

I love to stay busy: some of my interests are reading, baking, playing games, doing crafty/creative things, bike riding, taking walks/hikes, playing tennis, puzzles, bowling, and miniature golf.
