Jennifer’s Bio

*Teacher currently on spring break from school*
I am a graduate from Miami of Ohio and a certified teacher in IL and OH. I currently work as a preschool teacher in Chicago. I've been at the same school for six years. I am available for early to late evening jobs on the weekday and/or weekend. Please contact me if you are seeking a babysitter or nanny!
Throughout high school I volunteered at a local hospital and worked with children with special needs. I worked as a volunteer in a preschool setting and with an occupational therapist in the pool. I enjoy working with children hence the reason I majored in Early Childhood Education. I have babysat since I was eleven. I always put the child/children first and make sure their safety is number one. I have worked with children of all ages, ranging from newborn to 13 years old. I have also cared for a child with autism and his three brothers. I have a lot of patience so I feel I am a qualified babysitter. I am outgoing and energetic so the children always have fun doing crafts, science projects, playing outside, going on walks, and anything else they desire! When caring for a child I believe their needs and wants come first. While caring for another child I feel it is important to be very involved, such as entertaining or making sure the child is being active. Television is okay, but I like to keep the child/children active so they don't become bored or lazy. Although I feel it is appropriate for children to play and fool around, I will always make sure they are not behaving inappropriately or dangerously. While caring for a child, I have always made sure they have fun, feel comfortable, and enjoy every minute!

Jennifer is helping us in the afternoons after she gets off of work as a local pre-school teacher; she picks up our daughter from daycare, brings her home, and stays until we get home at 6:30. She is terrific! Even our daycare provider has complimented Jennifer to us. Jennifer is always on time (even early), and she does an amazing job with our daughter's evening routine. Our daughter is always playing, laughing, and having a great time when we come home from work. And the most amazing part is that Jennifer takes all of this in stride! She is truly a professional and it is a pleasure to work with her on a regular basis. We are thrilled to have found Jennifer and we are happy to give her 5-stars.
