Meet Bernadette

  • Speaks English and Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets

I am a Senior at Columbia University - graduating in May 2019 - with a B.A. in Creative Writing. I am passionate about the arts and have a wide background in poetry, fiction, theatre, film, and music. I also have experience with arts education! From 2015-2016 I was the vice president of my college's children's theatre troupe, creating theatre that was for, about, and including children! I have also had the opportunity to work with Quarto, Columbia's literary magazine, to edit and workshop poetry by New York's incarcerated youth. In high school I was a regular babysitter for several family's - and was the summer nanny for one family in particular. Since my time in college I have worked on and off for several families as a fill-in babysitter. I am looking to return to the position of a regular babysitter or nanny. My past duties as a babysitter or Read more nanny have included: taking the children to and from summer camp/school, cooking meals, feeding children, cleaning up the house, changing diapers, brushing teeth, and (of course) entertaining the children! I have experience with children from around 8 months old up to 11 years old. I also have experience as a tutor (and a college application mentor), so I feel comfortable tutoring children with homework, or brainstorming activities that are engaging and mentally stimulating! In general, I love to babysit (or nanny!)! I enjoy spending time with children and being a goofy (yet responsible) caretaker :)
