I am a certified primary school teacher who grew up here in PDX. I am currently in graduate school pursuing a Masters of Education in Autism Spectrum Disorders and Applied Behavior Analysis. Prior to becoming a teacher I worked in childcare for over 10 years as both a full time nanny and babysitter. I am currently looking for occasional babysitting opportunities to supplement my income as I finish graduate school. I have experience working with all kinds of families and kiddos, especially with children with special needs. Working with children and supporting families is my passion. Whether it’s going on a date night, running essential errands, or caring for other family members, all families need and deserve quality childcare and I’m happy to help provide that. I promise to provide care that is enriching, safe, and fun! Some things I love to do are getting outdoors, crafts, games, cooking, and Read more using our imaginations. I have been trained in Safety Care, and Red Cross CPR. Please feel free to contact me for a complete resume. *disclaimer, although I am studying ABA I am not offering or advertising behavior analytic services.
