Christa’s Bio

I am a dependable, compassionate, kid-loving person. I work full time as a counselor with middle school kids and adults, and would love to continue babysitting on weekends and evenings because I love the energy of kids of all ages! I completed a dual-masters degree program in counseling psychology and theology at Boston College.  Prior to my studies here, I volunteered for 2 years as an English teacher in Peru, where I taught 2nd-6th grade English and helped coordinate support groups for young children with behavioral problems.  I have worked as a part-time nanny for several families with children from 1 year old - 6 years old, and over the years I have cared for children and adolescents of all ages.  I play guitar, play sports, and like to dance, all of which I enjoy incorporating into caregiving whenever possible!  I'm fluent in Spanish and especially enjoy working with families from various cultures. I am interested in part-time or occasional work close to the Boston area, and I have a car. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile!
