Meet Kara

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

Hello, My name is Kara. I am 26 years old and I currently live in Schaumburg, IL with my fiance and dog, Cooper! Last spring, I completed my master's in social work with a concentration in school social work. I work full-time as an elementary school social worker. Each job I've held from high-school to now has involved working with children (daycares, recreations with children who have physical and/or mental disabilities, babysat, and nannied) resulting in 10+ years of experience with children. I have worked with two families over the last three years full-time while I finished up the last of my schooling and maintain a strong relationship with both families now. I love to ensure play is child-centered with activities and games that enhanced social, physical, emotional, cognitive, literacy and language development in the children I work with. I am comfortable with working with multiple children, pets in the Read more home, driving and participating in activities outside of the home, and feeding babies and children. I would love to open a dialogue with you to discuss more extensively regarding my experience, background and answer any questions you may have. Additionally, I have excellent references per request. Thank you for your time, Kindly, Kara
