Amy’s Bio

Hi there! I'm a professional actor, writer, teacher and storyteller who's been doing freelance child care to help support my career in the arts. I babysat quite a bit when I was a teenager and into my sophomore year of college, and have since worked with kids of all ages in other capacities: I've taught kids' theatre classes, been a summer camp counselor, sat for families both on call and on a consistent schedule, and have been a church childcare provider. I find kids to be insightful, inspiring, and hilarious; my enthusiasm for interacting with them is always genuine. I love reading together, doing art projects, and inventing games to play that have hidden educational value. For example, when a 2-year-old that I sat for became enamored with his dad's measuring tape, we went around the house measuring everything, and talked about "big", "little", "short", and "tall".
I don't have a car, but I ride the bus everywhere, and can babysit for any families within busing distance. Please give me a call if you'd like to chat! I live in Uptown Minneapolis (centrally located to much of the urban area), am fun, intelligent, warm, genuine and very responsible, and look forward to discussing your childcare needs. :)
