I love kids! I have worked for many years as a babysitter. I have babysat for families with children ranging in age from infants to middle schoolers. I am a current student at Virginia Tech, and I am pursuing a degree in Human Development to eventually become an elementary school teacher. I am a local Virginia Beach native, and was offered a teaching contract with the Virginia Beach City Public School system after student teaching with a second grade class my senior year of high school. I am lifeguard, CPR, and Water Safety Instructor certified by the American Red Cross, and I feel very comfortable playing in and around the water with children. Previously I attended Christopher Newport University where I had the opportunity to babysit for our school President's grandchildren during our homecoming football game. I'm a Christian and was very active at my church in the nursery, elementary, middle and high school programming. I love arts and crafts, baking, adventuring outside, and board games, but I am open to other fun activity ideas as well. I would love to babysit or nanny for your family in Blacksburg this year!
