Meet Vanessa

I recently moved from Minneapolis to Chicago to be closer to friends and family. In Minneapolis, I taught piano lessons full-time for 2 years, working with students from 4 years old to 15. I love kids of all ages. :) In high school, I babysat regularly for a family of 3 boys. In college, I babysat occasionally and helped out with junior high youth group. I also spent a summer as a camp counselor. After college, I've spent the last several years babysitting my niece and 3 nephews as they've grown from infants to young children. I'm drawn to working with kids because I love watching kids grow and develop, maturing into the unique individuals they are. I love their joy and honesty, and have a lot of fun finding creative ways to teach life skills and reading throughout the day.
