I am the product of a mom who ran a daycare out of our house for four years. I love little people and enjoy becoming friends with them. Legitimately, I talk more with the kids at my church than with the adults. I have been babysitting since about 11yrs old starting with just helping a mom out at the older sibling's sporting events and working my way to on my own with 3 young school age kids daily after school. I was a camp counselor for 4 summers working with age groups ranging from 5-17 yr olds. This experience taught me a lot of communication with parents, situational awareness, advantage of teachable moments, etc. I also was an RTE (responds to emergencies) and security officer at my college and the summer youth program they ran. Believe me when I say you CAN be a health and safety fanatic and be chill/relaxed at the same time. Last of all, I made it through school quite well so I am able to help with all the crazy math and all that the teacher are teaching these days.
