About Me

I am a certified teacher and have also worked as a nanny and babysitter. As an educator, I have an Educational Specialist, Master’s and Bachelor’s Degree and have taught both at the secondary and collegiate levels. While teaching, I also drew upon my passion as a performer and directed the school drama productions. I often teach drama and music to elementary school students and also volunteer at Title III schools, hospitals, and homeless shelters through the Screen Actor’s Guild BookPALS program which is desgined to promote literacy through performance and reading aloud.

As a babysitter, I use my background in education and the performing arts to enrich children’s learning experiences. I am a positive, encouraging and animated babysitter and pride myself with coming up with learning activities disguised as “fun.” In between teaching positions, I have worked as a babysitter and have several years of experience. Although my teaching certification is concentrated on grades 6-12, I have babysat and taught drama to children of all ages.If you are looking for a smart babysitter who can enrich the learning experience for your child outside of school…I am your babysitter!
