I have been babysitting since I was 12. I was a nanny for a family with two small kids for two years. I loved their children like my own. We played a lot, did arts and crafts, music, went do things in the community, etc. I liked to enrich them through activity rather than park them in front of the TV and get on my phone. I understand this time is crucial for social development and basic learning. I worked in the computer lab at Draper Elementary School. I have tutored a lot of kids ages 5 - 10 and worked lots of summer camps; I have a lot of experience with textbook learning and fun, hands-on learning. I am a lifeguard for years, taught swim lessons, and am CPR and First Aid certified.
Also, I love pets and treat mine like part of my family! My parents currently have two spoiled dogs, a cat, and a turtle. I have my own turtle and fish. I have pet sat for birds and dogs.
