As the parent of three well-adjusted, compassionate and responsible adults, I understand the importance of providing both a loving and consistent environment to developing children. Teaching elementary students has prepared me for the various academic challenges that many children may face. In addition, working as a counselor at an in-patient psychiatric facility has also prepared me to respond appropriately to a wide array of emotional and behavioral issues that many children experience. In addition to childcare, I can also run errands; care for pets; prepare healthy, child and adult friendly snacks/ meals; do laundry; assist children in the completion of homework and chores; and provide tutoring as needed. I love children and enjoy playing, reading and learning with them. I will provide loving, attentive and consistent care for your children. Hope to get to know you and yours soon!
