Sarah’s Bio

Hello! I'm a young professional in Des Moines am interested in occasional or part-time babysitting opportunities. I have over 12 years of experience with all ages including infants and also have significant experience working with children and adults with disabilities including Autism spectrum disorders, Down Syndrome, Cerebal Palsy, traumatic brain injuries, and learning disabilities. I have previously worked as a tutor (all subjects K-8, Spanish & writing at high school and college levels), respite care provider, job coach for people with disabilities, gymnastics coach, and as a nanny. I have reliable transportation, a clean driving record, and do not smoke. I work 8-4:30 but I would love to find a few families in the area to babysit for on an as-needed basis during the evenings/weekend. If you're interested in finding out more, please email me I will get back to you asap! Thanks!
