Hi! I'm Michelle, a recent graduate of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Elementary Education. This fall, I will be employed full-time teaching kindergarten. Babysitting when my schedule permits is still something that I am open and interested to doing, for it has been a part of me and my identity for so long.
A little about my work experience: I've been babysitting for 10 years. The children I have watched have ranged in age from newborn to 14 years old. I have babysat up to eight children at one time, by myself, and spent the past six months working with a family that had four children under five. Many of the families I have babysat for I have been with for many years and have formed a strong bond with them. I have been known to leave concerts early, skip birthday parties, and other social events because a family needed me that night. Because of this, I feel I am very dedicated to my families and will do whatever I can to be there for them. Basically, I love babysitting and working with kids, it's my passion! Besides lots of babysitting experience, I have classroom experience as well! Last year, I spent four to five afternoons a week in a first grade classroom acting as a teacher's aide, which was amazing! Additionally, I worked at a Fine Arts sleep away summer camp for middle school girls for two summers during my college experience. I have also spent an extensive amount of time working and volunteering in classrooms. I have a complete resume and reference list.
