Martha’s Bio

I am 50 years old and employed full time with the State of Tennessee at a university. However, I am single, new to Tennessee and want to spend some of my spare time making money by caring for children, pets, or your home if you have overnight needs. My grown child graduated in 2012 from college and got married this summer of 2013, which means I have little left in my budget for fun things like going to the movies or on a trip. Hence my reason to work for you. But honestly kids keep me real and I love being around them, so I cant think of a more entertaining part time job. My experience begins in my teens, and caregiving for children and pets has been a theme throughout my life. My college job in 1983 was as a live-in au par for two boys ages 2 and 4. After that, I have never stopped babysitting for friends and extended family. When my daughter left for college in 2008, I took on a roommate with a 3 year old son. who turned out to have serious behavioral problems. It was me that figured out the key to getting him to bed at night was a clean room. His mother was messy and the room they shared was just too stimulating for him. He was later diagnosed with high functioning autism. The two kids I most recently have cared for are charmers and know how to have fun. I have cared for both of them since they were born and they are now ages 4 and 6. They live in Richmond VA and I miss them tremendously but their parents, a free-lance artist and a lawyer, would be glad to provide a personal reference. I have undergraduate degrees in History and Religious Studies, and a Masters of Education in Counseling. This qualifies me to be a school counselor, however the track I studied was college student development and working with young adults. For your children's safety, I have a talent for seeing ahead and understanding what sorts of accidents can happen and preventing them. I am extremely vigilant without being a party pooper.  I worked for two summers at a minor league baseball field and always chose to work in the general admission family friendly sections of the ballpark because interacting with kids and families was more fun than watching baseball! My sister once nicknamed me the Hall Monitor; Why, is a funny story I love to tell. Finally I know how to clean up a mess and am very calm and practical when it comes to emergencies.
