I get a lot of questions regarding vaccination status so I'm going to be up front and say that I am not vaccinated. I was urged by my doctor to wait due to the fact that I am pregnant. All of the families I work for however ARE vaccinated, and I have no issue wearing a mask if it makes a family feel more comfortable. I'm a full-time teaching assistant by day, and a full-time graduate student by night. I am working towards my master's in early childhood special education. I'm the oldest child in my family, and have been babysitting and helping take care of children since a young age. I have experience babysitting many ages, and I have 12 years of experience with individuals with developmental disabilities. I am extremely patient, and I have a lot of experience dealing with behavioral problems of all kinds. I am CPR Read more certified but because of COVID, my first aid certification has lapsed. I love to watch children learn, and would be great homework help after school. I prefer to engage children the same way I was as a child such as playing games, sports, building forts, getting outside and enjoying nature, and I've even spent a warm summer night catching fireflies with a child I've babysat in the past. I enjoy cooking and baking, and I love to do arts and crafts.
