Meet Grace

I have worked with all ages of children in many different environments such as camps, museums, schools, one-on-one home tutoring, orphanages, and Sunday schools. I am very energetic and active. I love the challenge of rethinking a problem or designing an activity in a new way so that a child not only understands the concept, but also learns to love the process of learning. I can't explain the excitement that I find in that moment when a child's eyes light up because they finally "get" a new concept or skill. Although I am definitely an educator, even in my classrooms, I have always worked to make learning enjoyable, fun, and active. I find that when children enjoy the process of learning, they retain more and are motivated to continue learning on their own. Lastly, I believe that every day brings every person opportunities to learn new things and enjoy new activities. Whenever I interact with children, I try to pass on this perspective of lifelong learning no matter what activities.

Gina R. Hired Grace

Grace was a great sitter and I would hire her again! I have three kids, and she ran them around to activities, did overnights, helped clean up the house, managed my dog, and overall was highly responsible. I would hire Grace again!
