Meet Paula

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! I am a rising senior at the Hotel School at Cornell. I have always loved taking care of children and engaging them through play time. My little sister has a neurological disability (polymicrogyria) and limited mobility. Starting at the age of 15, I was a PCA (personal care attendant) in the state of Massachusetts. Working with her taught me a lot about patience and finding effective ways to communicate, which is necessary when spending time with any child, no matter their neurological ability. I also have many little cousins between the ages of infants to early teens. I grew up babysitting them at family gatherings. I also did some neighborhood babysitting in high school. When I play with children, I like to incorporate learning with play. Using toys and games to learn math skills or reading skills. Babysitting has always allowed me to connect with my inner child and Read more I love enabling children to use their creativity. I am also experienced with cooking (I have taken culinary courses for my hospitality curriculum) and am comfortable helping with cleaning and laundry around the house.
