Meredith’s Bio

Hello !
My name is Meredith, I'm 27 and I live in Sagamore. I come from a family of seven. My father is a Waltham firefighter and my mother is a Weston librarian. I have one older brother, two younger, and a little sister. I am the second oldest and have been changing diapers since I can remember. I started baby-sitting when I was eleven.
I started teaching pre-school dance classes at Susan Wright's School of dance in Watertown in 8th grade and now I teach dance 15 hrs a week (all ages) in Wellesley, Waltham and Brookline. When my little sister grew old enough to play soccer I co-coached her soccer team with my father for three years. In high school I got a job at the Waltham Family YMCA. There I taught a pre-school ballet class... kindergarden art.... a kids cooking class.... hip-hop for pre-teens.... 4-6yrs soccer.... summer camp.... and I was the birthday party coordinator. I am still there teaching gymnastics, ballet, hip hop, and Zumba.
For the past three summers I have been the nanny for two wonderfully active boys 4 days a week until their mother came home from work and traveled with them to Maine on vacations. My sitting philosophy is the active child is happiest. Run around outside play at the park, sports, art projects etc. And I like to say, whatever you are comfortable with. If you say "no sweets" then no sweets. I usually don't use T.V. at all. I like doing arts and craft, being creative, reading, and playing outside. I love to laugh and have fun.
I went to Regis College in Weston under scholarship for Dance Education but didn't find the program to be what I expected. I just left a 75 hour a week job managing a store at the Natick Collection because I realized that I spent more time and got more fulfillment out of playing with all the children that came in with their mothers than running the store. I am currently starting a wonderful job at a special needs school in Waltham. This job will give me time to babysit nights and weekends not just for little extra money but also to get a little more joy into my life that only children can bring. I'm looking for or occasional job doing what I love... and a family that I can be happy with and vise versa.
I am a non-smoker, I own an audi, so no problem with transportation. Very clean and organized, I am your go-to girl for errands and other tasks that you just can't find time to do. I'd love to be around for a year or more if needed or just occasionally. I'm very energetic and love life
