Julia’s Bio

I am currently a Nationally Certified School Psychologist who has worked for several school districts (most recently I have been working with students with significant disabilities in a therapeutic day school). I grew up in the Chicagoland area, but spent four years at school in Boston. I have a B.A. in Psychology and English Language and Literature. I received my Masters of Education (M.Ed.) from Loyola in 2010, and graduated with an Education Specialist degree (Ed.S.) in School Psychology in 2012. I have been babysitting for almost longer than I can remember. I grew up with a large extended family, so I am used to being with kids of all ages. I love working with kids because it keeps me active and engaged. I have been babysitting for more than ten years, and have experience with newborns to high schoolers. I regularly babysat for a family with four kids and supervised an after-school tutoring program for ten children.  I nannyed full time for 3 children, ages 4, 7, and 9. I also nannyed for a family with 2 little boys, one of whom I start caring for when he was less than a week old. I have tons of ideas for fun activities to do with children, both inside and outside. I am available on the weekends during the school year (Friday eventing to Sunday afternoon), and day or evening during the summer (completely flexible schedule).
