Meet Elizabeth

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hello there! My name is Elizabeth, but I go by Liz. I have 7 years of experience caring for children, most of the time pets included as well. Two years of this time I spent as a daycare teacher at Traditions Childcare Center working with infants to kids age of 12. Something I also have experience with is working with individuals with disabilities as I was a respite care worker for about two years. I spent a lot of time working with special education children in high school, making sure they had the opportunity to participate in any sport they were interested in so working as a respite care worker meant a lot to me as well. In addition to working as a respite care worker, I was also I math tutor at Saint Ambrose University. Even though I was tutoring adults, the techniques St Ambrose taught me could be Read more used for all ages. I have also been a CPR/ BLS instructor for a year at Mercy College, so CPR is something I’ve learned like the back of my hand! This probably seems like a lot, but I f you have any questions please contact me and I would be more than happy to answer them! Have a great day! :)
