Jessica’s Bio

Hi, my name is Jessica Sylvester and I absolutely love spending time with children! I am a patient, fun, and creative 21-year-old who loves helping kids achieve goals and gain confidence. I have had many different experiences when it comes to interacting with kids. I have babysat children with special needs and children ages 0-13. I change diapers, clean up around the house, do laundry, feed the kids, drive, and much more!
I am currently a Senior at Springfield College and study Elementary and Special Education. I focus on American Social Issues and am close to being certified in the state of Massachusettes. I am familiar with the Common Core used in the classroom and I tutor children in grades 3-5. I have student taught in a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th-grade setting. I work in all types of environments and have a blast doing so!
Over the past summer, I was an overnight camp counselor at YMCA Camp Gorham in Eagle Bay, New York. I was in charge of 10-14 girls ages ranging from 8-14 years old. We had to be disconnected from technology and ever since then, I enjoy just being outdoors and having fun without the support of technology.
I have babysat and nannied for many different people for the last 8 years. I have taken care of infants, toddlers, children, and pre-teens. My experience is wide and I am always excited to learn new things and make new memories!
