I am available for weekends and week nights! My approach to childcare is to foster independence and curiosity while always making myself available to tie some shoes, apply a band aid, warm a bottle of formula and help with math homework. I have experience caring for children ages 3 weeks to 16 years. I was a red cross certified babysitter in high school for neighbors and families in New Jersey, where I grew up. I also worked as an overnight camp counselor with children ages 5-16 for three years in the Poconos. There, I taught creative writing, art, photography and rocketry and assisted with supervising swimming (pool and lake on site) and other outdoor activities. I have a B. A. in Journalism and French from Temple University in Philadelphia, and can accommodate light tutoring or help with homework as well as exposure to a second language! My availability is updated semi-monthly on my Care profile!
