Part- Time Caregiver
Hi, I'm Mia. I grew up with my nieces and nephews, due to the fact that my sister who was close in age as me, had children. I have experience in basic child care including, feeding, entertainment, and cleaning. I've been a constant presence within my nieces and nephews lives, I've helped them learn academically and emotionally, as well as morally, while maintaining a lighthearted aura. I recently just moved to college so any job is appreciated and hopefully I can obtain a full time job eventually. If you have any questions feel free to ask :))

Charismatic And Aspiring Educator
Hello there, my name is Emily and I am an aspiring educator. I will be receiving three AA degrees this spring in anthropology, sociology, and liberal sciences. I maintain a high standard for my grades because of my simple and easy studying habits. I am detail orientated and ensure that I use clear, easy, and patient language when interacting with children so that no one gets left behind. I have found that I learn best by teaching and helping others understand. I have babysat and nannied for many years, specifically with special needs children. I was certified through a babysitting program for children with autism so I have paid experience in special needs. I have only ever tutored under the table for family and local friends. I am currently attending college and am hoping to build on my personal educating skills. I have many references as well.

New jobs posted by families:

Hi! My 91-year-old dad lives with us. He loves to walk, play piano, listen to music and watch football and music videos. He was a college professor and musician for many, many years. He's fairly capable of taking care of himself, but of course I worry about him falling and he's not so good at cooking (he has a sweet tooth and would just eat apple pie for dinner!) Sometimes he is chatty, often not very. Loves routine. His short term memory can be a bit spotty. We're looking for someone to walk with him and get to know him so that they could visit daily when we travel. This form requires that I state dates and times but for the moment our needs are very random. An afternoon here and there for walks or running errands hoping to expand into almost 3/4 time when I am out of town. Thanks for your interest.

Our ideal match is someone with a light hearted easy going energy. Duties include being fun, having an active imagination, playing pretend a lot, making lunch, and giving rides to big brother sometimes. Spanish speaking a plus. We have pets, so loving the dog is part of it too! Pay rate based on experience and level of house holding you are willing to do. Thank for checking out my post!
