Hi, I'm Melanie! I have been babysitting since middle school, and in high school I began working through a company caring for medically needy children, working for 7 years with one family's foster/adopted children. While getting my degree in psych I completed 4 internships: 2 in my elementary school with special education students, 1 in a preschool, and 1 in a children's hospital while studying abroad in Australia. I moved to California in July 2016 (recently moved back to Lockport) where I worked in a Montessori preschool for almost 4 years. While there I worked with in the infant and toddler classrooms, but I have experience with newborns to teenagers and children with different mental/physical disabilities.
