Fun Babysitter And Caregiver!
I am a senior at MSU and majoring in Early Childhood Education. Obviously, I love working with children! My major certifies me for birth through 3rd grade, but I am comfortable babysitting any age.
I am from a small town and always babysat children around town for family friends and acquaintances. I also babysat multiple children during parties/holiday events/weddings for adults, and was a nanny in the summer for a family every day.
During all of these experiences, I have had to take care of the children's hygiene, prepare meals, and of course play with them! I am not a babysitter who just likes to sit around and watch TV the whole time (except for the occasional movie :) ) I love to play games and actually be involved with the children. Kids don't like to be bored, and neither do I. I love to have fun and make the best of whatever situation I am placed in.
I have had many practicum experiences over my years here at MSU, so I have been placed in many diverse situations and experiences. I have loved them though. They all have taught me things and given me a little bit more direction in the field I am headed into.
I have also been a volunteer coach for Girls on the Run for the past four years in college. It is an after- school program for girls 3rd through 5th grade. We do lessons each day that deal with tough topics they face at that age and also train for a 5k. I do the program at a Title l school in a pretty rough neighborhood. Honestly, it has been the most rewarding thing I have done with my life and as much as I hope I have helped those girls- they have made me into a better person.
