I started babysitting the neighborhood children at the age of 13. I loved caring for children, so when I went to college I decided to do my Work Study job at the local daycare center. I worked for The Children's Center of Pittsburgh (TCCP) which is located in South Oakland and is affiliated with Magee Hospital for Women. I fell in love with the pure innocence of the children. I worked with the 9-18 month room, the toddler room and the pre-kindergarten room for a total of 1 year and 8 months. I received many after hour and weekend babysitting jobs from the parents at the center while I was there and continued to babysit for some of the families once I left. I had to leave the center after I found a job in my field and school was coming to an end.
