Meet Ellen

  • Speaks English

Hello! My name is Ellen Henry. I am originally from Louisville, KY, but I just moved from Chicago IL to pursue a career in dance. Since I was sixteen I have worked with kids. In Louisville, I had the opportunity of teaching dance to kids age 4-10 at a local dance studio. I also started babysitting my cousins and some local kids to gain knowledge and experience. In college, I continued to teach dance and eventually took on a role as a dance camp counselor during the summer months. I recently worked for a gym in Chicago as the daycare facilitator, where I monitored the children's play and attended to their needs. In the past year I was fortunate to work with a well known babysitting service in Chicago, K Grace. There I met tons of great families and was able to strengthen my experience. I love to work with Read more kids because I believe I am still a kid at heart. I love to see their reactions and hear their innocent responses. I am currently both adult and child CPR certified and have my first aid certification. Though I do not have a car, I do have my drivers license and feel comfortable driving around the city.
