Rachel’s Bio

Working with children is my passion. During the school year, I am a 4th grade teacher with DC Public Schools - a career change that I made last year - and I absolutely love it. This summer, I will be in the Rosslyn, VA area starting July 5th, and I am hoping to find a family to work with while school is out. I am available during the week, as well as during the evenings. *Please note that I have a family trip scheduled over the week of July 12th.*

My rate is based on the number of children, time of day, and types of activities/duties for which I am responsible. I am open to working with families on an individual basis to determine a rate with which we are both comfortable.

To give you some background, I have been babysitting for over 15 years, and truly love spending time with children (teacher was an obvious career changer for me!). I am always proactive and make it a priority to engage in the the games, arts and crafts, reading and cooking activities that I organize for the kids I'm looking after. I have experience with toddlers and infants, and as the aunt of twin 6-year-olds and the eldest of 12 cousins ranging in age from 10-21, I have experience with all ages and multiples.

Prior pursuing a teaching career, I worked at the Education Advisory Board, a higher education, best-practice research firm based in Washington, DC doing internal strategy and operations. While I loved my colleagues and the company, my true passion is young children, so teaching was the way to go.

Please feel free to contact me for additional information. I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your family!
