I grew up in Glenview, so I've been a midwesterner my entire life. My first job (over 15 years ago!) was watching over the children in a nursery during mass--I haven't stopped babysitting since then. I moved on to babysit the neighborhood children for many years. My experience ranges from infants to teenagers. Some of my favorite babysitting memories include molding clay, practicing 1/16th note rhythms on a drum pad, and riding bicycles together to the library.
To save up for graduate school I worked as a full-time nanny for a family of 5: twin 6-year-old boys and their 2-year-old brother. The twins could not be more different. One enjoyed playing Monopoly and card games. The other enjoyed playing hide-and-seek and kickball. All 3 boys were loads of fun.
In 2009 I received my B.S. in Kinesiology at Indiana University. Over 3 years ago, I moved to Chicago to get my Masters in Cinema Directing at Columbia College. Since graduating I have worked as a freelance filmmaker and continued to babysit, thanks to a flexible schedule.
The reason why I have continued to babysit all these years is because I truly enjoy seeing their little minds grow and develop. Children have unique personalities even before their first words. It is so much fun to teach when the student is so simplistic and curious!
I have been lucky enough to babysit children with very different interests from very different cultures. I am completely flexible when it comes to parenting styles and household traditions and welcome those conversations.
