I love seeing the happiness in a child's face when they realize they get to spend time with their favorite babysitter! As an experienced babysitter of all ages, including my three nephews, and as a mother to my own 5-month-old child, I have honed skills to provide loving and constructive care for children. I have a B. A. in Biology, from which I learned about nutrition, CPR, illnesses, and human development. I took graduate courses with an emphasis on neurobiology and child psychology. I have tutored children in math, English, and science, provided childcare for young children in an orphanage, and educated children about oral hygiene. I love utilizing creativity through games or "teachable moments"-for example, when my nephew found a dead frog, I used an analogy to explain a sensitive concept that may be hard for a toddler to comprehend, and was thrilled when he still remembered it weeks later. I am excited to forge a relationship with a new family in need of childcare!
