I am a retired elementary school teacher having taught in the classroom for over 20 years, as well as having preschool experience.  I have degrees in both early childhood and elementary education.  I have an excellent rapport with children and can relate to them at their level.  Most of my experience has been with children from 5 years to 12 years of age, but have worked with younger children as well.  I am fun loving and am able to help children with their school work since I am very familiar with school curriculum. Most of my classroom experience has been in grades K - 4. Additionally, I babysat for two girls...ages 3 and 7 for several years.  I was like a member of their family. I endeavor to help children learn responsibility and accountability.  Of course, this is done according to the children's age level.  I accomplish this goal by Read more providing positive incentives and rewards.  It has been very successful!  I am very dependable, caring, punctual and enjoy sharing my interests with children.  I love to read, write poems/stories, walk, a computer expert, play games, be outdoors, enjoy science, and do a variety of activities like arts and crafts, storytelling, and visit places in St. Louis like the Zoo, Magic House, Butterfly House, etc. I do volunteer for a cat sanctuary and love cats so much. So, if you have any fur babies, they will be in good hands too.

I highly recommend David! He has taken care of my cat twice, and will be contacted again soon for a third time. He is very thorough and professional, and makes sure he has all of the details on how to take care of our cat and other small responsibilities to take care of our cat and house while we are gone. When we come home, we have a nice, typed document of the day-to-day exceptional care he has provided.

David took excellent care of my pets while I had to be out of town. The pets liked him so well, they ran to meet him when he came by to finish our paperwork, and transfer key. The apartment was in perfect condition, and more importantly- both of my pets were well cared for, and happy! I will definitely call on him again! Thanks, David. Jana S.
