Chris’s Bio

I'm 54, live in Lorton, and am the mother of three children--ds27, ds25; and dd17. I am also a grandmother to one dear girl, but she lives far away, so I don't get to see her very often. We have lived here for 15.5 years.
I have my BS ED from Ohio State U, and over 20 years of teaching experience, including 5 years of homeschooling. I currently teach preschool at St. Christopher's in Springfield. My babysitting experience includes caring for a little girl who had just turned 1 until she was nearly 3. Her parents moved out of state but we still stay in touch, and she is in first grade now. I currently sit a sweet 3 year old girl once a week; I have been sitting for her for over a year and used to walk dogs for her mom's pet business.
My "style" is somewhat laid-back, and I consider myself a positive, gentle and process-oriented person. I'm not Type A, in other words, and I allow kids to be kids. That said, structure and organization are helpful tools, and clear expectations and guidelines provide children with a sense of safety--when they know what to expect, I believe they relax and enjoy themselves! My teaching was highly influenced by Montessori and Reggio Emilia principles--I love to encourage children to explore and experiment. I give lots of hugs, but respect personal space.
Someone once described me as a person "with an enormous capacity for joy;" I like that. I am a Christian, and that informs my worldview, but I let my life preach, not necessarily my words, and I respect others' beliefs.
I am CPR, First Aid and MAT certified.
I would love to get to know you and your child!
