Laura’s Bio

Hi Families!

My personal interests are reading, writing, movies, and crafts, but I love to explore different interests with children I work with. I have worked with children of many ages and with special needs and always believed that part of my job was to make them feel confident exercising their independence.

I live in Kensington in Brooklyn off the F/G line, and I am looking for families that would like an occasional babysitter. Please consider my resume below.

Warmly,
Laura Rizzo
