Melanie’s Bio

Hello Parents,  
      My name is Melanie I'm 25 years old and I am a graduate from Immaculata University with a degree in Mathematics/Education. I am well spoken, creative, very energetic and can provide a clean , caring, safe, and fun enviornment for your child. I am very fond of animals, I grew up with many different pets, and currently I own a chocolate lab.
I have worked in both child care centers and in a local school district. I  can be not only a great caregiver for your child, but also a friend and a positive role model. I am a very positive person and I use optimism as well as resourcefulness in every situation. My babysittting methods include rewards for good deeds such as going to park after doing homework, fun movie nights or other mini adventures. I have come to learn that if you speak to a child calmly, the children are more likely to respect me and learn lessons faster and I use time-outs for reprimanding. Although I don't mind house cleaning, I try to get the children involved to teach that if they clean up after themselves there's less mess for everyone to clean up.
