After having years of babysitting experience as a teenager, I received a degree in education at College of Mount St. Joseph. I worked as a substitute teacher, art teacher, and administrator of a before and after school program at Countryside YMCA. I was the lead teacher of the Fun Camp program for preschool kids. I raised 3 boys of my own as a stay at home mom, I babysat my godson and several other children regularly. I taught Sunday school, vacation bible school, and Tuesday school recreation program at our church.
