Meet Melissa

I moved to Upstate New York in 2004.   My personality is happy, funny, friendly, outgoing, energetic, and goofy.  I love doing many outdoor activities: walking, swimming in my pool, rollerblading, playing volleyball, and just being outside.  I am a very creative person.  While babysitting for two boys ages 2.5 and 4.5 years old they were playing swords and getting a little crazy.  I told them we are going to play a game called balloon float.  We had to keep the balloons in the air using only the swords.  No more issues!  I have been watching children since I was 12 years old.  It started with my brother, then neighborhood kids, then by word of mouth, and my job.  I have worked with children for 12 years.  I have worked with infants through 13 year olds.  Each age has special challenges, great rewards, and lots of fun to teach children.
