I come from a big family of 6, 3 of whom are younger sisters who I helped babysit and care for. I started out babysitting at the age of 12.
I life-guarded and taught swim lessons for 4 years in high school. I taught Sunday school at a church, 5 to 13 children, any given Sunday for 3 years. I taught curriculum, facilitated games and crafts, conducted songs and mediated conflict. I volunteered in a Christian center where I worked with around 20 children a night. I created projects and crafts that followed the lesson, redirected misbehavior and assisted with homework. I have a passion for children and enjoy spending time with them. I have an 8-year-old daughter in 3rd grade who is very outgoing, fun-loving and energetic! I served at our church in IL in the preschool room. I worked in a daycare as a lead teacher and taught 3-year-old's for over a year. I taught curriculum, crafts, served snacks, and meals, changed diapers, potty trained. I have nannied for several families of all ages.
