Paul’s Bio

I have experience caring for children from birth through young adults, have virtually infinite patience, am attentive, and always strive to exceed the expectations of the families I work with. I am a non-smoker, have a reliable transportation, and am frequently available for evening, weekend, and overnight care on short notice.

Prior to attending college and attaining my bachelor's degree in business administration; I was contemplating a career in education, completed training to become a preschool teacher, and began babysitting for several local families. As my career path went in the direction of Information Technology; I re-focused and was not actively seeking childcare jobs for several years; though continued to work with a couple families as needed. When the children of those families grew up to the point of not needing me anymore; I found care.com and for several years now have been providing quality care for local families as well as visitors to the area.

I'm also fine with caring for mildly ill children and would be willing to discuss other specialty situations such as working with special needs children and traveling with children on a case by case basis. I do have a valid United States passport and have chaperoned teens abroad. I enjoy everything from art projects and bedtime stories with a preschooler to subtly shadowing a teen who needs supervision while out of the house.

I have a very mild-mannered personality, but enforce rules as necessary. I take safety seriously and have current certification in Infant/Child/Adult CPR and First Aid, as well as specialty training for water-based emergency situations and Epi-Pen administration.

Examples of what I've been hired for include:
*In-home care at child's home (day/evening/overnight/week-long)
*Summer camp instructor (groups of 10+)
*Day trips to theme parks and other area locations when parents didn't want to go or needed an extra pair of hands
*House sitting and monitoring teens while parents were out of town
*Chaperoning a teen to Germany for two weeks as she participated in a film project

I welcome creative assignments. My rate is negotiable based upon the number of children I'm expected to care for, length of care, and what I'm expected to do while I'm with the children. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss details of your childcare needs!
