Hi there! My name is Lindsay, and I've been working with children for the last 15 years. I am the oldest of 3 girls, and started babysitting my sisters and their friends when I was 12 years old. I continued to babysit throughout middle school and high school, and absolutely loved it! I attended college at SUNY New Paltz where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I immediately continued on to graduate school at Mercy College where I earned my Masters of Science in Early Childhood, Childhood, and Students with Disabilities Birth-6th grade. In May 2018 I'll have been teaching in the early childhood field for 5 years, 4 of those years in Special Education. I truly feel like my calling is working with children with special needs; I've learned so much about what these kids are capable of and the humor and intellect they have inside Read more them. Working with these kids and their families has been a humbling and awe-inspiring experience! My primary goal on Sittercity is to offer my babysitting services to families of children with special needs. I would love to provide families that break for a fun night out!
