About me

Working with children is my passion. I believe children are the future and it is our job as adults to help mold them into better versions of ourselves. I love working with children and feel a great sense of satisfaction in doing so. I like giving back and being able to help others. Working with children is my way of giving back and helping shape the future. There are countless perks that come with caring for children, some of which include the feeling of appreciation, the thought that there are people depending on you, and the fact that children are looking to you for advice and direction.

I have worked with children of varying ages, as young as 2 weeks old and as old as 6 years, so I feel comfortable with children of any age. I am kind, loving, respectful, responsible, reliable, and much more. I love being honest and up front about situations. I believe everyone deserves respect no matter creed, race, ethnicity, country of origin, gender, etc. I am easy to talk to and even easier to get along with. I am a big believer in open communication and keeping the lines of communication open.

Some of my hobbies include reading, studying, learning a new language, traveling, food tasting, playing a musical instrument, learning to read music, visiting NYC parks in the Summer, trying new vegetarian restaurants, and visiting the theatre.

I will be SmartSitting while...

When I'm not babysitting, I'm usually enrolled in classes furthering my education. I love reading and learning new things. I am big on acquiring knowledge. Two skills I believe every human being should have include the ability to speak at least two languages and the ability to play one musical instrument. In my spare time I am also working on my Spanish and perfecting my skills with the clarinet.

In 5 years, I hope to be...

Graduating with my M.S. in Education. Also, I would like to obtain my initial teacher certification. Working with a great family!!

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children...

I love teaching children values: honesty, justice, consideration, determination and most importantly love. Helping children to always tell the truth -- telling the truth isn't always easy or comfortable, but at the end of the day being honest is important. Teaching children to always be considerate and to always take other people feelings into consideration. Think about how their actions will affect others. Encouraging children to be generous with their affection. I try to create an environment where children can express how they feel freely.
