Laura’s Bio

Hi! :)

I'm currently available occasionally and 2-3x/week (after 3:15pm)  - during day and some nights during the week and weekends. I also have my own transportation and references! Additionally, my hourly rate depends on the duties, child(ren)'s age(s), going rates and my experience; however, I am flexible regarding the hourly rate/pay.

I am fluent in ASL and Cued Speech. I'm available for the upcoming summer part-time and full-time. I have over 14 years experience in babysitting children from ages 3 months up to 18 years old, 3 years experience in Child Development w/ Pre-K children (hearing children). I taught 2 years in Fairfax Co - in Special Ed; 1 year internship at Montgomery County Public Schools w/ Deaf children; 1 year in a daycare as a teacher's assistant. I have my 90 hour clock certificate as senior staff, and I was a part-time nanny/babysitter in Olney for three different families -- 1 year and 3 months, 9 months, and 1 year.  I am also working as an occasional babysitter on weekends and I've helped children with their homework and school projects!

I graduated from UMBC with my B.A. in Psychology. I also graduated from The George Washington University with a master's degree in Transition in Special Education with teaching certification for learning, emotional, non-categorical K-12, and intellectual disabilities. I currently teach full time in Arlington County Public Schools. I am also currently finishing up my Ed.S (Education Specialist) in Deaf Education--Early Intervention degree at Gallaudet University.

Laura was very good. She showed up on time and was very good about following our son's routine. Our son was comfortable with her and everything went very smoothly. Laura is pleasant and a pleasure to work with. This was our first time going through SitterCity and we couldn't have had a better experience!

Laura was great with our little boy. She arrived promptly at the requested time. We went through his routine and everything went smoothly. I would definately recommend her to anyone. My little boy had lots of fun playing and giggling with her!

Laura just cared for a little guy while we were at a wedding. It was a long 8 hour job and she took great care of our son. She was also flexible and able to stay a little later than we anticipated needing her when we got delayed. She did a wonderful job.

Excellent sitter!

Laura is a gem! She kept my kids busy over several days and drove them to a variety of local recreational areas and activities. She also helped them with school assignments. My daughters loved her energy and enthusiasm--I loved her reliability and great communication. Since my kids are older, she showed the right balance between keeping them safe and letting them have some freedom. I would definitely trust her for any sitter job.

Laura is wonderful!!

We've had Laura come by now twice to watch our six and a half month old. She is absolutely terrific! Extremely reliable and very good at communication - she sent us meaningful updates throughout the evening and also confirmed in the days leading up to babysitting so we knew we could count on her. She also came by on short notice one day, even driving down from Maryland to get there on time. We couldn't recommend her more highly!
