Meet Bary Alyssa

  • Early Childhood Special Education Certification

Hi there, Let me begin by introducing myself - my name is Bary Alyssa Johnson, I'm 33 years old, college educated (bachelors degree in psychology with a minor in childhood education from Clemson University), have years upon years of experience babysitting children of all ages ranging from about 4-14 (give or take), amazing references from families I've worked for that I'd be glad to provide upon request, a soul-deep love for working with children and an honest desire to make sure I cater to each child I care for well enough to ensure that they develop their own soul-deep love for spending time with their new favorite sitter (yours truly, of course) as we foster a a positive and nurturing relationship between kid and caretaker. I've spent the past 10 post-college years working as a journalist for various media outlets while also holding down a number of steady and generally Read more long-term babysitting/nanny jobs for families all throughout Westchester County. In addition to that, I've volunteered as a"homework helper" for the Salvation Army's after-school care program in White Plains as well as volunteering to provide after-school care through similar programs at a handful of elementary schools in S.C. during the years I spent living, as the brilliant poet Nikki Giovanni so eloquently described it as "the barefoot South where everything is pretty." Aside from my devotion to childcare and news reporting, other beloved hobbies of mine include reading just about any and everything I can get my hands on (I've been an avid reader since the day I picked up my first book), the art of fashion, writing creatively, music (!!!), taking long drives to see new places, crossword puzzles, playing with my two dogs (Max, a 2-year-old golden doodle and Riley (an 8-year-old Yorkie), watching movies, spending time with my new (1st!) nephew who just recently turned 1, debating and conversing with friends, doing a lot of anonymous solo charity work (mostly focused on gathering bunches and bunches of used books and donating them to a women's homeless shelter in the Bronx)...and, well, my list of interests could go on indefinitely but I think u get the gist of my essential character. And so there you have, in a nutshell
