Meet Melanie

  • Comfortable with pets

I am currently a high school English teacher in Chicago! I love working with children and have a ton of experience with all ages. I have been a babysitter for my siblings, families in my neighborhood, and families throughout Chicago. I also have 2 years of experience at KinderCare working with children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. When working with children, I do my best to engage them with fun and healthy activities that stimulate learning and thinking. I know that play is so important for children and always try to keep their minds or bodies active. I love being outside, doing arts and crafts, and reading. Ultimately, I am respectful and responsible and will always prioritize the needs of your child.
