Katie’s Bio

 My mother is a professionally trained nanny. I have spent majority of my life growing up and assisting her with children she has cared for. She has taught me many skills that most nannies my age have no knowledge. When I turned 13 I started baby-sitting in the neighborhood. I have cared for infants as young as two months and kids as old at thirteen years old. Activities that I provide for the kids and my employers are taking walks and bike rides; going to the park; going to the pool; taking the kids to and from school; going to the beach; trips to museums. Chores I am willing to help out with are dishes, some laundry, and light cleaning. I also taught third and fourth graders religious education at St. Paul of the Cross(Park Ridge) for five years.  
 After I turned sixteen, I began to work a few non-nanny jobs. I realized that I missed baby-stting. When I baby-sat it was a job that gave me joy. Seeing kids grow up and learn knew things is marvolous and I want to be a part of it. From the day I was born I was on the job with my mom and I knew I would love to become a nanny and care for kids just like she did.
I attended DePaul University. I have a BA in Communication & Media with a minor in television production. My educational background is evidence of my creative nature and is something I bring everyday to work with the kids I babysit for, through crafts, puppet shows and other creative play. My post college pan is to continue caring for kids until this Fall where I plan to get my Master in Education either from Northwestern or University of Illinois Chicago. I am open to staying on as a sitter while attending graduate school and can plan my schedule to fit the days we agree upon.
I am applying for a part time positions during the week with possible evenings and weekend hours. I have my own vehicle and I have a perfect driving record.
