Melissa’s Bio

Hi parents ! Thanks checking out my profile!
2011/2012: What I'm looking for- As of right now, I just finished attending school full time for my second bachelors degree in Nursing (graduated last week)! My availability is pretty flexible as I will be studying for the boards until February and starting my new job at Johns Hopkins Children's Center in March!
I'm Melissa, I am 24 years old, currently graduate of University of Maryland, College Park and University of Maryland, Baltimore. I have a B.A. in Communication and a B.S. in Nursing. During my senior year of undergrad, I decided I wanted to go back to school for nursing as medicine has always been a HUGE interest of mine. After nursing school, I plan to earn my masters as a pediatric nurse pracitioner the following year at Georgetown. I absolutely love working with kids and have always known that no matter what career path I took, it would involve helping children in some way or another.
I have had nine years of experience working with kids. I started babysitting when I was 12 years old for a family that lived next door to me. That family has now become a part of my family, and a huge part of my life. For four straight years I have worked at CELEBREE LEARNING CENTERS of Maryland. There, I was a teacher (full time in the summer, part time in the school year) for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. In addition, I have worked as a full-time lead infant teacher at THE GODDARD SCHOOL in Whitemarsh, Maryland :)
I am Infant, Child, and Adult CPR certified as well as first aid. I have also had training in SIDS for infants as well. I love working with infants and toddlers although I do have plenty of experience with all ages. I also have experience with special needs as I have babysat for children with Autism, as well as Downs Syndrome.
 I love to have fun, make messes with playdough (don't worry we'll clean up!), go for walks to the park, help with homework, sing songs, draw pictures and make sure time away from Mom and Dad is fun, safe and confortable for both parents and children. I am a friend to all of the children I sit for but first and foremost I look out for their safety and well-being.
I'm looking for a welcoming family that takes pride in finding the right sitter for the job, taking into account all experiences and references. I really hope I gave you a feel for who I am and I can't wait to meet you and your children! =] If you need anymore information just take a look at my resume (which is probably from my freshmen year of college) or contact me for references.
* It is important to me that I meet all families in a public place prior to babysitting unless otherwise discussed. Although I've met wonderful families through sittercity, I value safety and assurance. I apologize if this causes any inconveniences, it's just something that I feel is important when meeting people through sites like this. Thanks for your understanding.
References will be released on request. Thanks for your interest!

We're very lucky to have found Melissa. She's been absolutely terrific with my toddler - he clearly trusts her and enjoys being with her. She's great at adapting to our routines, and to his likes and dislikes. She's been absolutely reliable. It's good to know I can count on her.
