Emilly’s Bio

Hi there,

My name is Emilly and I am a current MLIS candidate at San Jose State's iSchool. Portland has been home since 2009 and I earned a B.A. with latin honors in Child and Family Studies with a minor in Elementary Education from Portland State University in 2012.  As I transition to part-time work, I am looking to supplement my income and spend time soaking up the joy of kids again. Boy, I've missed them!
 
I have 8 years of experience working with children of all ages, in a variety of settings.  Most recently, I have taken care of my friend's children (birth - two years old) and spent two summers as a nanny for school age children. Some places I've worked at in Portland include: Buckman Elementary, Sunnyside Environmental, the MAC, Helen Gordon Child Development Center, Growing Seeds, several SUN school sites, Self Enhancement Inc, and Vermont Hills Family Life Center. In California (where I'm from), I spent four summers as a Head Teacher and Assistant Coordinator at an alternative summer school program called Summers at Peninsula School. 

I am a fluent English and Spanish speaker and am comfortable conversing in either language.  I have a valid OR driver's license with a perfect driving record and am comfortable/experienced transporting children. I have successfully completed Child Abuse and Neglect Training and am certified in CPR/First Aid. As a sitter, I am passionate about child development and progressive philosophies including RIE and Reggio Emilia, and incorporate these teachings into my own practice. I value strong bonds with the families that I work with and seek to care for children to the best of my abilities while allowing them to express themselves and explore/play independently. I am compassionate but capable of setting boundaries with ease. I am also very open to new ideas and would love to cohesively plan childcare approaches suitable for the families I work with. If it sounds like we may be a good match, or if you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email. I am more than happy to provide references upon request as well. Thank you very much for taking the time to view my profile!

Kind regards,
Emilly

She is such a good babysitter. My favorite thing about her is that she is very proactive. When she came into my house, she found ways to entertain my boys and little girl. Then, made them a simple dinner (per their request, PP&J sandwiches and scrambled eggs) while I got ready for the party. When we came home the boys were in bed sleeping, their high chairs spotless from dinner, and dishes put in dishwasher. Such a sweet heart. It was my first time using this website to find a babysitter and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I hope to have her back ASAP. Thank you Emilly!

Emilly worked with my wife and I for a good five months taking care of our two boys (7 & 10). She was great with them and wonderful to work with. She is very punctual, very mature, and has been a great supervisor/friend to our two guys.

We really miss her now that she in in Portland.... You cannot go wrong with her!
