My name is Abby Wakitsch and I am 18 years old. I am a freshman at DePaul University, and I live at the Lincoln Park Campus. I have been caring for children since I was about 12 or 13 years old. The children I have watched have ranged from being a newborn baby, to about twelve years old. I absolutely love children, and that is why I am pursuing a degree in education so I can spend every one of my days around kids. While I have done a lot of babysitting over the past 6 or so years, the job I am most proud of was this past summer. I spent my summer of 2017 as a nanny for a set of twins that were 4 years old, a boy and a girl. I worked with them every Monday through Friday from 8 am to 3 pm. I was Read more so sad to leave them at the end of summer because of the amazing bonds I formed with them and how I much I loved them. Another job I would like to touch on was my Tuesday nights. Throughout my senior year and for some of the summer, I watched another set of twins, a boy and a girl, on Tuesday nights. On Tuesday nights I would pick up these twins from after school activities, would prepare dinner for them, and also help them finish their homework until their parents got home. When I was 15 I became CPR certified and I have also taken child care and child development classes while in high school. I choose to become a caregiver because of my love for children, and because I am good with kids. I love being a caregiver because I get to form bonds with kids that warm my heart and will stay with me for the rest of my life. I am looking to find a part-time nanny job while in college that still has a weekly schedule. I would like a family that understands that I will not be able to be there while my school has scheduled breaks, as I am not allowed to stay on campus during these times. I have numerous references I can share with anyone interested in me.
