Christie’s Bio

Communication, trust and honesty are very important to me as a nanny. I recognize how important it is to be dependable and honest as a caregiver.  
I am currently a 5th grade teacher and soccer coach. I have also worked as a tutor, activity coordinator, and a preschool teacher,  Since then, I have spent my summers as a nanny.    Outside of school, I love practicing Yoga, hiking, and spending time with my adorable nieces and nephews.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education and have minors in the areas of special education, reading, middle school, and social science.   My educational background has prepared me well to effectively integrate educational ideas and lessons into our daily activities. 
I love going to the park and playing sports outside with the kids.  I also I love to do art with the kids I babysit.  Often, I will bring games, or bring special crafts and activities (face painting) to be sure that the kids will be engaged for the whole time I am babysitting.  I try to never let t.v. watching be part of our day.  
 
What I love most about babysitting is the bond I make with the families.  Besides having a special bond with the children, I appreciate bonds I make with the parents I work with as well.  I view my relationship with families that I babysit as one which takes on the role of a co-parent, in a sense.  It is important to be honest and vocal about each day I spend with the children of the parents that I work with.
