Sara’s Bio

I'm 28 years old, and I have lived in Queens, NY all my life.  I received my Masters in School Counseling in the spring of 2009.  When it became difficult to find work in the school system, I worked as a paralegal, and then as a subsitute teacher, after which I decided spend some time volunteering in Sub-Saharan Africa working with orphans and vulnerable children.
I love kids.  I was a babysitter all through high school and college for a number of different families and for children of all ages, but most of my babysitting experience is with toddlers and elementary school-aged kids. It's just something I really like doing.  I love sports and the outdoors and taking the kids for walks and to the playground and the zoo and wherever else, but I also love reading, puzzles, board games, and playing indoors with the kids.
While my experience babysitting is mostly with elementary school aged children, I have experience with older children from leading the middle school group at my church and working as a counselor at summer camps.
I'm certified in First Aid and CPR.  I can cook all sorts of regular American foods but I've never tried making anything fancy.  Laundry and light housekeeping are no problem at all.  I'm a Christian, and I enjoy sports, reading, and playing the piano.  I like the NY Mets, NY Giants, and NY Knicks.
