Hello! I hope to provide some useful information about myself that will allow you the opportunity to meet me. I've recently moved to Chicago from Philly to pursue my Masters in Urban Education at the University of Chicago. I graduated from Emerson College in Boston, MA, studying Communication Sciences and Disorders.
Over the last two years, I worked as an Assistant Pre-K Teacher at a local Philadelphia charter school in West Philly. In the afternoons, I served in the after school tutoring Kindergarteners.
I have been babysitting ever since I can remember, watching a variety of children in the local neighborhood since I was fourteen. I have watched children as young as 9 months and as old as twelve, but I am a fast learner and very compassionate and feel that I will be able to accommodate your family’s needs. I have the most experience with children ages 2-9.
Besides working as an occasional babysitter, I have four years experience in my old neighborhood sitting for a young seven year old weekly. I have also worked as a tutor for two years at both a vocational center for adults and at an elementary school, taught English in Costa Rica for ages 12-20, worked in a children's clothing store, volunteered teaching arts and crafts in an after school program, and coached field hockey at a summer camp for young athletes. I have been a volunteer for Big Sister for Big Brothers/Big Sisters Association of America for three years, as well.
I am a very fun, energetic individual and love working with children. My interests in arts and performing usually play a role in my working with children and will be able to provide fun creative activities for the kids, painting, drawing, puppet shows, etc. I love playing games with children, inside and out and take the time to make silly voices when I read stories.
I would like to establish a dedicated relationship with a family, but I am also available for occasional babysitting.
My personal interests including reading, travel, DIYing, learning languages, cooking, visiting museums and cultural centers, exploring outside, and hosting picnics for friends.
I hope to use my experience babysitting to continue on my path to a future career in working with children. I look forward to hearing and working with you!
