I have been involved with children through multiple experiences. My mom is a elementary school teacher, she has a multi-age room (1st-3rd grades) and I grew up serving as a teacher's aid and assistant for her which fostered my love of helping, teaching, and playing with children!
I've also coached recreational gymnastics for a range of ages, starting from 6 all the way up to teens as well as volunteering at a local homeless shelter where I would play with the kids after having dinner while the parents would work on securing resources and opportunities.
Additionally I was a babysitter/nanny for 2 girls for 2 years, when I started they were aged 9 months and 3 years. Outside of just babysitting for evenings when the parents had to go out of town I served as a nanny and stayed in the house with the kids, performing household duties, meal prep, took them to school and activities, etc.
I love building and fostering a real bond and connection through laughter, fun, and new experiences.
