Hello, my name is Marissa. I just recently moved to the Lakeview area and am excited to find a family I can become a long-term sitter for. I attended Ball State University where I studied Early Childhood education as well as some Special education courses for 6 semesters. I have always been responsible with children and began babysitting my cousins at the age of 11. As I grew up, I started branching out to babysitting the children of my parent's friends. I continued doing so throughout high school and during the summers when I would come home from college. Throughout my years of experience, I have worked with kids of all ages. Most of the children I have babysat for have been under the age of 14. While I was away at school, I worked as a Special Education Paraprofessional at Cowan Jr. Sr. High School. I worked with kids Read more with a variety of different exceptionalities. The two students who were my focus responsibilities were a seventh grader with a learning disability and an autistic senior. I am able to help with any school work and after school tutoring as well. I value creativity and spending time outdoors while working with children. I hope to get to know you and your family!
