Hi there! I'm a professional actor, writer and storyteller who's been doing freelance child care to help support my career in the arts. I babysat quite a bit when I was a teenager and into my sophomore year of college, and have since worked with kids of all ages in other capacities: I've taught kids' theatre classes, been a summer camp counselor, sat for families both on call and on a consistent schedule and have been a church childcare provider. I find kids to be insightful, inspiring, and hilarious; my enthusiasm for interacting with them is always genuine. I love reading together, doing art projects, taking walks, and spontaneously inventing games to play. Also, I have no qualms about being absolutely goofy. I'm also available to tutor, and to do combination sitting/tutoring gigs (for example, one of the children for whom I sat was in first grade and needed homework help).
I emphasize compassion, cooperation and respect when I work with kids, and I'm not intimidated by mental or physical challenges, or different learning and communication styles. Housework and meal prep are also within my range. I don't have a car; I get around by bus, bike and feet, so if you're looking for drop-offs and pick-ups, that's probably not something I can do - sorry!
Please give me a call to chat. I live in Uptown Minneapolis (centrally located to much of the urban area), am fun, intelligent, warm, genuine and responsible, and look forward to hearing from you!
