Meet Deborah

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello, my name is Deborah Powers. I am twenty-one years old, attending Montclair State University, currently engaged in my senior year. I have been babysitting since the age of eleven. I have taken care of children ages 11 months to twelve years old. Not only have I been doing this for several years,I have gained the knowledge and education in child care-taking. I am certified in CPR and First Aid. While attending school within the last few years,I had become the hired babysitter of identical twin boys (age 8), and their older sister (age 11). Frequently, I picked them up from school, took them to their extracurricular activities, and completed homework with them. I have always enjoyed being around children, caring for them, and learning from them. In addition to being a seasoned babysitter, I have also worked as a baseball/softball clinic coach for children ages 5-16. In the near Read more future, I aspire to be an physical/occupational therapist, specializing in pediatric disabilities. Nevertheless, I am reaching out not only because I wish to gain more experience in the childcare field, but so I can learn and adapt to various personalities of children as I continue my education at school. I am looking for a family to welcome my abilities, knowledge, and wholehearted care into their home. I can guarantee your child's safety, health, and general well-being will be top priority. Respect and fun go hand in hand, and I can assure you that your child will be in the best care possible.
