My name is petrona joseph, i lived in Brooklyn, i'm from a small country in the Caribbean name st.Lucia. i love children, as i have three teenagers of my own whom, i raised.i was born with a compassion nature and a friendly personality to care for children. Apart from baking cookies, pool days and park moments, i believe that there are more to childcare, for instance the sitter must be always be alert psychologically and mentally. while loving children is good first step, one must very attentive to the behavior of the child that they are caring as one child differ from another.they all have their own personalities and moments. my experiences as a sitter in the past has allowed and encourage me to pursue a degree in social work where im now attending medgar evers college and im in my second year .
