Odessa’s Bio

I am a 21 year old full time college student working on my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, specializing in working with kids who come from broken, abusive, or dysfunctional homes. I cherish the relationship bonds that I build with each child that comes into my life. I have 6 nieces and nephews that I spend as much time with as possible. Family is very important to me as is dedication, commitment, compassion, patience, and a love for children. I volunteer at Kettle Falls Elementary in the first grade class my niece is in or wherever they need my assistance. I currently live with my disabled mother in Kettle Falls. I babysit weekly for a family in Marcus with a 9 year old boy and a 4 year old girl. I also watch a 2 year old boy on occasion. I babysit for my brother and sister whenever they need my help. I believe in kids being kids. What this means to me is that I believe that they need to engage their imaginations, exploring different things, learning new things all the time. I feel that it is important to be a good role model and set clearly defined boundaries. When I am caring for a child I treat that child just as if he/she were my own. I believe that it is important to listen to children when they speak to you and answer them when they question you. I feel that it is important to get on the same level as the child I am caring for letting them know that they can count on me and trust me. 
I believe in good wholesome fun like making mud pies in the spring time instead of sitting in front of a television, computer or game console. I like to get to know the parents and other close family members of the child so that they can feel comfortable leaving their precious gift in my care.
