Lindsay’s Bio

ABOUT ME:
I'm a 29 year old who is pursuing a career in photography, and looking to work as a sitter part time on the side. I have a reliable car and am open to running background checks on both my vehicle and myself at parents' request. My recent past experience in childcare includes:

-Nannying for a family beginning when their son was 5 months old until he was 1.5 years old
-Director of Camp Programs for a boating camp, serving over 1000 campers, ages 6-16, over the course of the summer
-Aid in a PDD classroom for 2nd grade students
-Aid in a kindergarten classroom

I've also worked as a sailing instructor and camp counselor; a cook in a restaurant halfway up a ski mountain in Telluride, Colorado; at an opera company in Boston; crewing an 80 foot schooner in Narragansett Bay. I love to travel and some of the exciting places I've been recently include living in Colorado for 6 months and going on a trip to the Kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific where I had a chance to swim with whales!

ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE IN CHILDCARE:
I began babysitting at a young age for siblings, cousins and kids in my neighborhood. Most recently I worked closely with campers at boating camp and nannied for a family starting when their son was 5 months old and ending when he was 1.5 years old. Throughout college, I babysat for different families including a French-speaking family. I nannied for a  family of five teens one summer, keeping on top of everyone's schedules and transporting them to activities. I have worked as a substitute teacher for public school systems.  After college, I worked with a YMCA theatre company stage managing a musical with casts of up to 80 children and teaching introductory theatre classes for toddlers and pre-school age children.

I love working with kids and believe in going outside and exploring rather than sitting in front of a TV. I believe in a having a balanced blend of structure and fun when working as a sitter.
