Meet Dakota

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! My name is Dakota Rivera and I am a 19 year old female from Schenectady. I recently graduated high school and started college, but I withdrew soon after so I could work. While I have never professionally babysat, I have a wide range of experience working with children from the ages of a few months to fourteen years, as I have two brothers, ages two and fourteen. I love to engage children in fun, safe, and educational activities like story time, coloring, and arts and crafts. I have a diagnosis of bipolar II and ADHD. I mention this as I go on to say that when I was younger, I lived in a community residence for children with mental illness and special needs. While I was considered to be high functioning, I resided with a few clients who were not, and my interactions with those individuals have helped me Read more to learn effective ways to communicate with special needs children and function appropriately in a diverse community.
