Enthusiastic College Student Looking To Help Out!

(1)
I have been babysitting and nannying since I was 15 and absolutely love spending time with kids! Last year I volunteered as a tutor through DC Reads and worked as a mentor in a DC public middle school, which provided me insight into how best to engage students with thoughtful, intriguing lessons. My main priorities are safety, enthusiasm, and a drive to help local parents during a challenging time when kids need extra support in their educational journeys. I am a second-year Public Health major studying at American University. My academics have always been a passion of mine, which is reflected in my 4. 0 GPA. In my free time, I like to be outdoors, cook, and explore DC. Some extra-curricular I am involved in are AU's Leadership and Ethical Development Program, AU College Democrats, and Jewish life on campus. I have seen first hand both the social and education impacts COVID-19 has had on children and I think I would be a valuable resource for parents in the upcoming school year.

Miriam served as my six year old twins' caretaker this summer. She is responsible, warm, attentive, creative, patient, smart, and fun. Throughout the course of the summer, Miriam consistently took the initiative to plan creative activities and adventures for my children that kept them engaged. They formed an instant bond with her and grew so attached that they would constantly be asking when she could come back and when they would see her again. Miriam is naturally very skilled with children, and I watched in awe as she was able to keep them laughing and having fun, answer their difficult questions, help resolve sibling quarrels, and generally keep the trains running on time. Miriam is very mature and responsible and demonstrated the utmost professionalism at all times. I appreciated that she made a great effort to communicate often with me, and was always punctual. Any family would be extremely lucky to have her on their team.
