I've served as a long-term, part-time babysitter for about three families over the course of about five years -- children's ages ranged from 4 months to 8 years. But, my experience in caring for kids goes beyond the standard babysitting job, as I grew up the oldest in my family and extended family, naturally caring for those younger than me. For two years while at college, I had a part-time job as an America Reads tutor, in which I was professionally trained to tutor kids in reading and writing at local elementary schools in under-served communities. Recently, I spent an extended period of time in Virginia, caring for my three cousins -- a 4-month-old, a 10-year-old, and a 12-year-old. When it comes to caring for children, I value listening, communication, education, routines and activities, and emotions-based instruction. Please know I am available June through late August. I'm Red Cross Child and Baby First Aid/CPR/AED certified.
