I am a 37 year old female who moved to Chicago about 8 years ago from the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area. I am a improviser, actress, and a comic, and I absolutely love children. I feel that some of the best humor comes from the naturally wonderful and inquisitive nature of children (kids truly say the darndest things).
My experience with working with children is about as vast and long as my experience of theater. I have been babysitting (friends, family, and neighbors) for over 20 years. I have worked with children from infancy through teenage years. I currently have been working with some families as a nanny in a nanny share. I have a certification in Early Childhood Education, and therefore, can work on enriching and stimulating children's minds through music, reading, science, theater, and art. In addition to performing in Children's Theater, and working as a Facilitator for the Museum of Science and Industry, I also have taught classes in theater and improv for children and teens.
This training provides me with a skill set that is unmatched in experience, patience, flexibility, anticipating the unexpected, and the ability to ‘think outside of the box’ if needed.
I am aware that a childcare provider has to wear many hats. S/he must be a teacher, a disciplinarian and a friend. I believe that I can bring all of that to the table. One of my foundations in life is that energy is a choice, and I strive to live that everyday. My many references are available upon request
