I started caring for children in my early teen years and have always enjoyed working with kids. Health and safety come first, I am careful and attentive to the needs of parents and children at all times. I am active and can keep up with children of any age. Family rules and daily routines are as important to me as they are to mom and dad. Organization, punctuality, cleanliness, and consistency are three personal qualities that also come in handy in the professional atmosphere for me as well. Coming from a family of educators I have found creative and fun ways to incorporate school related and educational activities during simple tasks such as sorting laundry or grocery shopping. I love to cook and try new recipes but remain aware of allergies and dietary needs. I am comfortable running personal errands, taking children to and from school/camp, and appointments.
