Meet Petra

My name is Petra Kasula. I grew up in Illinois, in a suburb of Chicago. I attended Illinois State University and graduated with a Bachelor's in Social Work. I interned in adoption/foster care program working with all ages (new born to eighteen years old) and worked with children who had a variety of learning disabilities and behavioral issues. I lived in Portland, OR (2011-2015) I was a substitute preschool teacher and in three months became a Lead Preschool Teacher. I also took on the role of Substitute Site Director, so I was responsible for running the Preschool and teaching the 3, 4, and 5 year old students. I had lovely relationships with the students and parents, this lead to several long term babysitting side jobs. For two years I regularly babysat for twins every Wednesday night (their date night!). I am now considered apart of their family and honored that Read more I am :) I babysat for most of the families that attended the school. My last summer in Portland, I nannied for a family that attended the school, two girls ages 5 and 7. I nannied the two of them and at times up to six children all together. We had an amazing summer, so many adventures and lots of laughs! I really enjoy working with children and developing relationships with their families. I have been a substitute teacher with Kelly Services since I have arrived in Pennsylvania working with a range of ages. I currently work at Primex Garden Center in Glenside and have been also with the company going on three years. We recently started a program Lil Sprouts: Learning About Nature Program and the ages I work with are 3-10 years old. I am currently looking for more work on my days off (Sunday, Monday and Wednesdays) and after work opportunities, after 5:30pm. I am also available on evenings over the weekends.
