About Me

Since graduating from college, I have been subbing at a school for special needs children. I teach and assist children with life skills, personal hygiene, and create a fun and safe environment for them. I have also been a babysitter/tutor for the past three years with children ages 5-11.

I enjoy working with children and seeing them grow and learn. Teaching them new things is a passion of mine. I always try to make learning fun for children and incorporate games as much as possible!

Along with working with children, I enjoy volunteering with the gardening club in Sayville, NY. I am very good with house pets – I have two dogs and a cat and enjoy spending time with them. I am a licensed cosmetologist and love to do hair & nails with the children I sit for!

Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children, Children with special needs
