Hi, my name is Dottie and I have recently moved to Blacksburg to be near my Son and daughter in law. A little about me.... I feel I was born to be a care taker. I have raised 6 children, who have become awesome and successful adults. I have 9 wonderful grandchildren. I am looking for a caretaking position either with children or the elderly. I love dogs too and feel I am an all around caring person. With children I believe in positive reinforcement and creative learning. I like to teach by playing games. Word and letter recognition. I love walks and educational outings. I understand that is limited right now with the covid problem... and I take precautions. Your child's health, safety, and happiness is my first priority. I have volunteered in many schools as my children were growing up . As for caring for the elderly... I love talking and listening and most of all being a good friend. Again, safety is a priority as is health and happiness. I believe I can be the one you need!
