Kate’s Bio

Born and raised outside of Cincinnati Ohio, I am number five of six children. I have six nieces and nephews with whom I frequently spend time. I currently am a middle school teacher at a private school in Chicago. I also have experience teaching fifth and first grades.

While attending Loyola University, I took advantage of all the city has to offer while caring for various families throughout the city. I have cared for a Lincoln Park family of three children ages 6-17 for the past six years. My time with them has been spent tutoring and babysitting. I have additional experience caring for Chicago children ages newborn-nine years. I am comfortable commuting through Chicago with children by foot, driving, or using the CTA.

In high school and college I spent 4 summers at a YMCA camp near my hometown where I worked as a overnight camp counselor. There I was a certified as a lifeguard and in CPR/First Aid. In 2012 I worked as director of programming for children ages 9-11 and their staff.

During my high school years, I assisted and taught dance lessons to 5-13 year olds at my local dance studio. During both these experiences I had the chance to work with children who had Down Syndrome, Epilepsy, ADD, ADHD, and other behavioral and developmental challenges. I also spent 10-15 hours a week as a part time sitter for a local family with two boys ages newborn-3.
 
My ultimate goal is to create a safe, fun, educational, and magical environment for children of all ages to thrive in. I hope to find a family with whom I can develop a lasting relationship for periodic babysitting opportunities. While caring for children, I always practice a kids first policy.
