Hi! I'm an elementary art teacher available for occasional summer sitting. I am quite accustomed to having to multitask and care for children of all ages. Prior to teaching, I worked as a nanny for two Chicago families for over four years. The ages of the children varied, from 2 months to 10 years. With my education background, I am well versed in the stages of development in children. Through hands-on play, literacy activities, problem solving games, and art-related projects, I encourage children's communicative and social-emotional learning and critical thinking skills. Lastly, having previously worked as a camp counselor and lifeguard, I have skills in CPR and first aid.
