I have been working with children since I was a child! I’ve always loved kids; I love their energy and how they keep you young. I am an 18-year-old college athlete that is looking for summer employment, and what job is better than working with little ones? I have two younger sisters that are 7 and 9, I babysat them from the time they were infants until now, I have a niece and nephew, they are twins and are 8 years old! The boy has autism and I have been able to manage watching the two basically throughout their entire life! I even have experience with working with over 30 kids at a time, I volunteered at bible camp for Hope Church about 2 years ago and I loved the experience, It was a summer program, and I would do it again if they decide to run the camp again. Read more I have a lot of energy, I love to play games, I can cook, I can clean, and I love spending time with children. I am more than capable of caring for a child, I have a valid driver’s license, my own car, and insurance, in case of emergency. Although I did not verify a background check through Sitter city, my record is 100% clean, I have not even gotten a speeding ticket. I would love to have the chance to watch and spend time with your children, and I would love if you allow me the opportunity to do so. My phone number is (515)318-4579, Call me if you have any questions or would like to speak to me, texting is preferred but whatever works best for you works best for me.
