I have worked with kids for years in a professional setting. I worked as a teacher for pre-k/kindergarten for 6 years. I am EEC certified in Massachusetts for infant/toddler and pre-k as "teacher". I got my masters degree in education and taught US history to tenth grade. I was also a substitute teacher for middle and high school in Amherst, MA, and Boston, MA. I have an MA teachers license to teach history to grades 5-12. I love all ages and that is why I spent so many years teaching such a wide range of kids. I nannied for an infant/toddler while also taking care of their 8-year-old son. I think working with young kids is fun because they are constantly surprising me with how smart they are. They just want to be happy and have fun, and I love that. I have a lot of energy intend to bring Read more that energy with me babysitting! i also love all animals so pets are welcome!
