Brooklyn’s Bio

I am a senior in high school, so I work best on weekends or after 3:30 pm.  On weekdays, I prefer to be done between 9 at the latest so I can get rested for high school!  But on Friday and Saturday nights, I can be out as late as you need me.
I have been working as a babysitter for my own brother, and other families, since the age of 10.  I've worked with all ages, and enjoy all ages! I've worked with boys and girls, and get along well with both genders.  I've taken care of only-child homes, as well as families with 7 children.  I have had a great reputation with all the people I have babysat for, and have been asked to return by every family (yes, even the ones that people would tell me not to go to because the children were "hard to take care of", and yes, I enjoyed those families just as much as the others!).  I have taken care of children overnight before, and don't mind late-night jobs on the Friday nights or Saturay nights. 
I don't have any children of my own, and no longer have siblings that are considered "young".  I do have friends with younger siblings however, and I enjoy watching them whenever I get the chance.  I do have a hyper dog, and enjoy watching him. I'm great with animals, especially dogs and cats. I do, however, have a fear of snakes and spiders (so please don't ask me to handle them).
I have volunteered for many places.  I haved worked for donation stores, giving food out to the homeless, packaging food at shelters, and most recently working and shadowing at the hospital.  I also am a good student, trying to earn money for college.
I have taken a Latin class at my high school, but that is the extent of my foreign language.  All my other language skills are very basic.
I don't have any caregiving philosophy.  I'll do what the parents ask me to do with their children (feed them vegetables, have them brush their teeth, clean their bedrooms, etc), however I will not force any work that I do not feel they need to do on them, unless parents have a specific order.
I love doing anything with kids.  If they want to watch a movie, or play outside, or play board games, or doodle, or play make-believe, I'm good with all of that.  And like I said, I'm great with pets too, so I can keep the pet entertained if I need to.
I haved worked with kids who have special needs, whether they be physical, mental, personality, etc.  I've never had a problem with it in the past, but if I feel I cannot meet the child's needs, I will inform you so that you can instruct me on how to act next time, or so that you can choose if you would like me to continue to come.  My interest is in the child's best interest, and if you feel I need to be taken out of the situation to help your child, I will not be offended.  However, I have never had this be the case, and am confident you will approve of my services.
