Stella’s Bio

I am a freelance writer and environmental educator, so have a flexible schedule (I live in Northwest DC). Because I spend much of my "professional" time looking at a computer, I really like the opportunity to spend time with kids! As a teenager I was the "go to" babysitter in our neighborhood. I make it a point to relate to each child at their level. So we might invent games, read, throw a ball, or just spend time chatting about their interests and their day. I like to sing and if your kids are musical we can enjoy that pastime as well as arts and crafts. Bedtime stories of course!
I have experience as a reading tutor, and also have taught middle schoolers as part of various outreach programs in my field. I pay attention to keeping kids safe and provide a gentle structure. I took cpr as a girl scout (so it's been a while) but I keep a good head generally in emergencies.
I recently housesat for a friend who was traveling for an extended period, and watched her teenage boys, an active dog, and their various buddies. All went well and I received kudos for my spaghetti, greek salad, and chocolate chip cookies! I am happy to cook simple meals or treats as part of a longer sit.

Fantastic Babysitter!

Stella was very kind from the moment that I met her, and I instantly felt at ease leaving my two young children with her. She immediately got down on my 3 1/2 year old's level and asked if she could play with him, which he loved. The next day he said that he had a great time with her and wanted her to come back to play trains.

She was also prompt and competent at handling everything that happened. I hope she'll come back soon!
