Hi! I have extensive experience working with children in a wide variety of ages. I first began babysitting and nannying when I was very young and have since become very comfortable caring for, teaching, and also learning from children of all ages. In the past I have volunteered at a preschool in West Chicago as a teacher's assistant caring for children with special needs. In college I worked with high school students after class as a tutor and mentor. Currently, I am employed at an early childhood education center located in Roscoe Village. I work as a teacher in an infant classroom collaborating with two other teachers to care for up to 12 infants at a time. Although I love my students and coworkers, working in a professional childcare environment has made me realize that I would love to be able to give more individualized and personalized care and attention to a child or children. Younger children and infants are my favorite age group, I look forward to meeting you!
