Malea’s Bio

Hello!
I'm looking for a great family to work with. I have years of experience and can provide several references. I have worked with newborns all the way on up through high school, as I am a certified teacher in addition to my babysitting/nannying experience. 
I love to read books, laugh, play games, build forts, do art projects, bake, and explore new places with children. I have no problem cooking and doing light household chores like tidying and laundry. I also love animals, so pets are not an issue for me!
While I love to have fun, I am also very consistent with discipline (time outs, privileges taken, toys on time out, etc), and all around behavior. The kids I work with know what to expect from me and know that I am fair and create a routine that is predictable, while also being open to spontaniety if good behavior has been demonstrated by the children. I love to do science experiments and craft projects with kids, as well as bake and go on safari in the back yard (weather permitting, of course). Feel free to contact me if you feel we are a good match for one another!

It was great to meet Malea!! Malea demonstrated a keen ability to adapt immediately to the very different personalities of my 3yr old son and 8mo old daughter. While she has not yet sat for my son, she communicated well with him at their first meeting. I got the sense from her presence with him that she would be able to have fun with him and "hold her own," be firm with him. Moreover, my daughter, very careful around new people, responded so positively to Malea's a gentle, warm, and caring nature. I love that Malea is professional, friendly, and down-to-earth. I am very much looking forward to having her sit for us again!

This a wonderful babysitter and I would highly recommend her. She is very attentive, always on time, not afraid to ask questions and has no problem gaining a child's trust. She's one of the BEST!!!

I recently met Malea to talk to her about babysitting my 9 month old daughter. While I haven't had a chance to have her sit for us yet, she seems very nice, responsible and trustworthy.

We interviewed Malea and thought she was excellent. She is a teacher and clearly loves children. We did not hire her only because someone else fit our hours better and seemed like a better fit for our family. I would definitely recommend her.

I now watch Angela's children once a week after school and have been for about 6 months. They are a delight! 3-10-10
