I am finishing up my seventh year of teaching and transitioning to law school at SMU in August. I am looking for a July position as a babysitter, nanny, or tutor before school begins in August. I was a certified lifeguard and swim lesson instructor for five years throughout high school and college. I began my teaching experience after graduating from the University of Notre Dame and then teaching Pre-K for two years through Teach For America. After that, taught first grade for three years in my hometown of Chicago. For the past two years, I have been teaching middle school English Language Arts in Washington. I have a passion for working with children of all ages and abilities. I especially love early childhood education-supporting children in their unique paths of development and helping them thrive. I have my own transportation and love all animals (but my Bernese Mountain Dog pup is my favorite!) I am happy to help with household chores and pet care as needed.
