Amanda’s Bio

I just completed my third year at George Mason University, working to get my degree in Criminology. I love teaching and I love kids. I've been sitting since I was 10 (about 11 years!), and, although I've held other jobs, I always come back to sitting and nannying.I have provided care consistantly for one family for about 6 years, they have a set of fraternal twins (a girl and a boy) and an older boy and two cats.  I've been sitting for them for so long that now their kids "grown up" middle and high schoolers and don't need a sitter anymore. I've sat children of all ages, from infants to older middle schoolers and I'm comfortable with all ages.
I am the oldest of three, with a younger brother and sister. We've had numerous cats, dogs, birds, fish, and every other creature imagineable and currently have a one year old beagle named Ameila. I love the home arts such as cooking and sewing as well as the performing arts - I dance, sing, and act.  I hope to recieve my undergraduate in 2012 and get my masters and P.H.D. at Mary Baldwin College.
One game the kids I sit absolutely LOVE playing is what they have dubbed "dark tag." Which is essentially, hide and seek with the lights off.  It's always a huge hit with kids who are old enough and not afraid of the dark! My personal philosophy with sitting is to make sure that they're being creative and having fun. Every day is an opportunity to learn something new, and I like to make sure to seize every opportunity to discover - as long as we're obeying the rules!
