Hi there! My name is Tuck and I am a non-binary person, as well as a sex educator. My work as a sex educator consists or working with folks of all ages to develop healthy relationships with other humans and their bodies. This work has been deeply informed by my experience of caring for other humans since I was a teen. I have been caring for kiddos since I was 12 years old (that's 13 years now!). My first babysitting job was for my social studies teacher who lived down the street from me. I regularly babysat her two children from birth until they were 7 and 5 years old. As a teenager, I babysat for different families every week, developing kind and loving relationships with the entire family. My babysitting jobs have become an integral part of my experience of community, and I experience so much fulfillment from building Read more these care networks. For many of these families, I was their babysitting for 5+ years, supporting their kids to grow and thrive. Ever since then I have had some kind of babysitting job, whether as a nanny or as part-time/occasional care. My experience with kids is also professional. I have worked as an after-school science teacher and camp counselor, and tutored students of all ages in the past 5 years. As a sitter, and a teacher, I genuinely adore spending time with kids. I am the youngest child of a large family and growing up I often felt silenced and ignored because I was littler than everyone else. That experience is where my deep commitment and passion for listening, respecting, and uplifting the voices and experience of children comes from. Please note that I use they/them pronouns and as a non-binary person, I do not identify with either male or female gender categories, although this site currently does not offer another option (or to omit from sharing gender).
