Hi! My name is Leighton and I am a 33 year old kindergarten teacher in Montgomery County Public Schools. I have over 6 years of teaching experience across MCPS, Fairfax County, and the US Peace Corps. I also have over 5 years of babysitting experience and have worked with children of all ages from newborns to upper elementary. I am also a patient care volunteer at Children's National Hospital in Washington, DC and work to provide socio-emotional support and play to patients ranging from newborn to adult. Additionally, I have 3 years of tutoring experience for students on different areas of need and homework support. I am looking for occasional weeknight and weekend babysitting, with more long term options in the summer. I absolutely love children and think I could be a good match for any age. I am very excited for the opportunity to work with and meet your Read more family!
