Playful Sitter And Master Of Arts And Crafts

Avg response < 5 hrs
Hi - My name is Marley and I'm currently a junior at Ithaca College studying Theatre Studies with Minors in Education and Integrated Marketing Communications. I started working with kids since I was 11 years old as a Mother's Helper and I have been babysitting and teaching ever since. For the last five years, I've worked as a camp counselor for an arts camp with kids ages 5-15 and primarily worked in performing arts. I've developed skills in time management, flexibility and creative problem solving that have made me into a very effective communicator and educator. I love playing outside with kids, and, as the daughter of a pre-school teacher, I'm an expert in all sorts of arts and crafts and fun activities. From finger painting to movie making, I'm prepared to bring my positive attitude to any situation and make every activity a joy.

Marley was my voice student for several years and our go to for babysitting our three small kids! She is simply THE BEST! She would show up with crafts in hand. I referred her to friends for babysitting and she even showed up to one family with a script written to film a Harry Potter video. She's smart, creative, super sweet, and a born educator. She loves kids and it shows! I teach MANY students her age and she is the most thoughtful and mature one around. You are lucky to have her!
