I live in New York City with 8 years of education and nannying experience.
I am not an average babysitter. Here's why: My experience in the past has been with very particular children, a 4/5-year-old girl, a 3-year-old boy with autism, 4/5/6-year-old boy who was home-schooled, a pair of 5/6-year-old twins-one with autism and one with social anxiety, a pair of 11-year-old twins-one with autism and one with ADHD--all of whom I have had to engage for the full 4/5 hour "shift".
Sitting is not a side job for me. It is something that I love and feel called to do.
I have also taught in the school system. I have co-taught Pre-K 3 at Holy Name School in New Orleans, and I taught drama at St. Marys Dominican High School.
In addition to childcare, I am a working actor, dancer, and musician, a father of one son (hopefully with more to come:)
Also, I grew up playing every sport there is, so I love playing soccer, baseball, basketball, football, kickball in the park, etc.
