I've been babysitting for several years, taking care of ages ranging from infants to preteens. I love being with kids and coming up with creative ways to keep them busy and entertained. I encourage time outdoors whenever possible. I've had experience with feeding, bathing, and changing infants, bedtime, mealtime, entertaining children with indoor activities and arts and crafts, handling arguments amongst siblings, and helping with homework. I spent a semester in high school student teaching first grade in an elementary school (one of the best experiences of my life). I've done volunteer work with groups of kids, as well as helping out with a Girl Scouts troop for high school-aged girls. I consider myself a very responsible, and organized person. I'm in my senior year of college, majoring in American Studies, planning to attend a graduate program in English.
