Erin’s Bio

I am proud to say that I am a recent graduate student of Virginia Commonwealth University, class of 2013! I received my Bachelor's of Interdisciplinary Studies in Liberal Studies for Early Childhood and Elementary Education with a Psychology Minor. I'm currently living in Annandale, VA and hopefully will be attending George Mason's graduate program to receive my Masters in Teaching for Elementary Education in spring 2014!
As an older sister to three sisters and an older cousin to two seven-year-old children, I've constantly been around little ones all my life becoming a natural babysitter/mommy's helper. In high school, I coached a youth field hockey league for young girls. In Richmond, I completed over 100 hours of student-teaching for kindergarten and fifth grade classrooms as a part of my schooling. I consider myself very loving, patient, and reliable. I love enteracting with children and being a mentor for them. After some time teaching, I hope to go back to school, get a masters in psychology and become a children's counselor.
I've babysat for a child as young as five-weeks-old and as old as fourteen years. I have experience with gifted-and-talented children and children who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, down syndrome, epilepsy, dyslexia, or aspberger's syndrome. I do not mind multiple kids; the more, the merrier! Pets are not a problem also as I do have pets of my own! I'm no longer Infant & Child First Aid and CPR certified but I am still fully knowledgeable of all safety and emergency precautions.
If I am babysitting during the school year, it's always homework first. I like to go over the homework (as much of a pain it may be to the child!) and make sure they understand it. I belive it's very vital to start teaching the importance of education to children at a young age, which is how my mom raised me (she's a teacher herself!). However, after the work is over, something fun will always be planned whether it can be with sports, a board game, or a movie night. Please feel free to email me with any questions, concerns, or to set up a babysitting interview/date!

Erin picks up my daughter from school a couple of days a week. My 7-year-old thinks she is the best babysitter ever. She is reliable & ensures that homework is done. I look forward to having her sit for us more often!

Erin has been sitting for my 5 year old son after school for the past 4 months, and she has been great. She is very responsible and trustworthy, and has done a great job. I highly recommend her.

Erin is the best of the best when it comes to child care providers! My kids reported that they stayed busy with activities and games while we were gone. They also begged me to make her their full time nanny! Erin deeply cares about children and it shines through her work with them! Without hesitation, I give Erin my highest recommendation!!!

Erin was awesome. She was very professional and informative in her application, had great communication leading up to the job, and was very friendly and interacted great with our kids. She watched our 14 month old for a few hours and then our 9 year old and was great with both of them. Our 9 year old cant wait for the next time and we are looking forward to her Summer break from school. We can highly recommend Erin for your job, even at the risk of not having her available for us :)
