Meet Laura

Hi! I am a certified elementary teacher with an additional endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I have experience with children ages birth-middle school in various settings including babysitting, nannying, teaching, tutoring, child care, lockdown and juvenile justice, and on-one-on teaching. I received my BA from Cornerstone University and completed masters-level training at WMU in their counselor education program. I have experience with special needs children, multiples, and medically challenged children.I have references and credentials that I can make available. I am hoping to babysit/nanny for a family on a consistent basis this summer and possibly beyond. I am passionate about working with kiddos and love planning activities and adventures. I enjoy supporting parents in their home.I do not have children of my own. I do have reliable transportation. I am allergic to cats. Note: Pay is negotiable based on number of children, and expected responsibilities.
