I am outgoing and I would consider myself fun. I know how to make children, as well as adults, feel comfortable in situations that may be awkward or uneasy for many. I am exceptionally punctual, but a tad sarcastic ( Not like the two go together). I enjoy spending time outdoors, yet I can find fun and silly things to do when the weather is, well, icky.However, I won't lie I do love movies, but a good book is always a better option. I love to learn and teach, and children are excellent at both. I am not good and math, but I can write, read and spell better than most. I guess that is why I went to school to become a journalist. Although, I work as an office manager at an Ad agency- life is weird. I tend to believe that I have a great smile and it Read more usually makes the world smile with me. I just enjoy being me, whatever it means that day, I am open to so many different opportunities and situations and I hope that I can just add a little bit of joy or knowledge to a child's world. If I can do that I think I am doing my job. Don't get me wrong, I can be tough and stern when the time arises. I am not a pushover, but I don't overreact about the small things. I am as honest as anyone can get and I always put all of my effort into everything I do.. even coloring.. and I am REALLY bad at that. I have been babysitting for over 15 years. I have experience with small children ( beginning at 6 months) up to 13 years old. I have just been doing little babysitting gigs here and there, but I was a nanny for awhile- I would be glad to elaborate on this when we meet. I was also a part of Big Brothers Big Sisters for two years. I am actively in involved with children.
