Hello, I’m Rista! I’m an Elementary School Assistant Teacher in Arlington County Public Schools. For 15 years, I have taught young children and helped students with their homework after school. I’ve raised and cared for children of all ages. For two years, I’ve enjoyed babysitting for a local family and I am very interested in this babysitting role. I’m free after 8 AM on the weekends and after 4 PM on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. I have my own car and I have a safe driving record. Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss your babysitting needs and I can provide references. Text or call my cell phone at 703-855-2063. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you! Rista B.
