I'm originally from Ukraine, grew up with a younger sibling, was actively participating in his upbringing. Here in US I got to work as a lifeguard and later on - as a swim teacher at LKSA, where I got my CPR and First aid certificate+ a great deal of experience with kids of all ages/backgrounds/tempers/ abilities. I can teach you and your kiddo water safety and how to swim in fun& enjoyable way! I did some self-education and took child development classes in college. I believe in SEL and practice it when work with kids. I worked as a nanny/tutor for 7 different families within last couple of years - references available upon requests. I'm good at ethical(vegan) food prep& love doing crafts, as well as I enjoy spending time outdoors with kids and supervising their exploration of a big world! I believe in social-emotional learning. I'm a certified driver& babysitter.
