Elya’s Bio

I am currently located in La Grande, OR during the school year (September to June) but I usually spend my summers in Pullman, WA. I have been a babysitter since 6th grade and am now a freshman at EOU. I usually babysit for church functions (Emmanuel Baptist Church, Pullman) and families that know me from church, but of course am not limited to just those people. I love working with kids and engaging and teaching them. I work with kids every summer as the Vacation Bible School music teacher for EBC and doing other musicals and such during the year when I'm home.  I have worked and babysat kids from infancy to age 12. I am comfortable with any age, although I do enjoy the babies :) I do not have any kids or pets of my own, but someday I hope to! Because I have been around children so much, I feel that I am prepared for most any situation that might come up while babysitting. I believe that TV should not be a child's main source of entertainment or be considered a babysitter. I enjoy taking kids out on walks, going to the park, exploring, doing puzzles, playing games, and even making up our own games!
