Responsible, Dependable, And Caring Sitter
For more than a decade I worked in the classroom. I taught Latin (and briefly science) to children in grades 3-10, it was a rewarding experience, but a few years ago decided to take a break. I began putting together some odds and ends, most of which included childcare and tutoring jobs. I learned that I loved this combination and for the last three years that is where my focus has been.
I think I am unique in that I enjoy all ages of children. I have experience with newborn babies and high school seniors, as well as every age in between.
For me, childcare is interacting with the children, it is getting on the floor and playing with them, though I am not a big fan of screens when I do allow for screen time I usually watch with them. I am calm and laid back, but I do enforce rules. A typical day with me (depends on the ages of course) free play, crafts, conversations, music, and more play.
