Meet Melina

I have been working with children for over 12 years now, with about 10 years of paid experience. I find joy in this work, especially creating a space for kids to have fun and feel cared about. This role feels very natural to me. I grew up in a big family so it's a really great fit. I am an active person. I have a background in dance training, and I love to be creative and use my imagination. I like to sing, dance, cycle, explore the outdoors, experience the arts, and I especially enjoy quality time with people. Friends consider me warm, compassionate, very responsible,... more
I have been working with children for over 12 years now, with about 10 years of paid experience. I find joy in this work, especially creating a space for kids to have fun and feel cared about. This role feels very natural to me. I grew up in a big family so it's a really great fit. I am an active person. I have a background in dance training, and I love to be creative and use my imagination. I like to sing, dance, cycle, explore the outdoors, experience the arts, and I especially enjoy quality time with people. Friends consider me warm, compassionate, very responsible, patient, and a good listener. I am a service-oriented individual. I like to help as much as I can. I'm great at cleaning and tidying up. I am seeking a family with a need for perhaps 5 to 20 hours per week. I work part-time for an airline. My rate is also variable, depending on your family size and the responsibilities of the job, so please just ask!
