I am manager for the Clearwater/St. Pete branch of Seminole Sitters. I am currently finishing up my internship for a Bachelor's degree in Music Therapy at Florida State University and will be graduating in the spring of 2018. I grew up in sunny Seminole (near St. Petersburg), where I fell in love with music and joined the marching band in high school. Growing up, my mom was a teacher’s assistant at the local elementary school where she taught pre-k VPK/ESE. In middle school, I began volunteering in her classroom where I learned to work with children who had Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down's syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and other disabilities and medical conditions. I continued volunteering all the way through high school. I started babysitting with friends when I was 11, babysitting younger siblings of my friends, and soon on my own when I was 13. I have also worked as a summer camp counselor, where I taught music and was the counselor of 4th graders, as well as the special needs portion of the camp.
I started working for Seminole Sitters in the fall of 2017. Growing up with two
older sisters, I knew the tricks of the trade before I went to high school. I have been working
with kids for over seven years now. I started volunteering in my church nursery, as well as
babysitting for family friends. I have cared for newborns all the way to eighth grade.
I first started babysitting for Seminole Sitters in Tallahassee fall of 2009. I was a part-time sitter for almost 3 years before moving back to the Tampa Bay area. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to babysit from time to time, in between my other work. Before that, I was a volunteer in Big Brothers Big Sisters for 3 years in high school, and also volunteered my time at my local library in the children's section.
I have been babysitting for neighborhood families as young as newborns since I was 13 years old and have been a camp counselor for the past three years now working with kids from the ages of 4 to 13. I have also worked with a special needs soccer program helping them work on their skills and interaction with other peers. I have also coached a softball team and the girls ranged from 10 to 16. These jobs and volunteering have helped me experience working with children from all ages, newborn to 13 years old. I have always loved working with children ever since I was a little girl.
I have been babysitting and taking care of children since age 13. I have experience with newborns all the way through school age children. I have been a teacher at two daycares and also completed a two year childcare program in high school where I earned certifications in all ages of children along with CPR and AED certifications. My passion for children has only grown throughout the years and it has always been my dream to be a teacher. I have volunteered at elementary schools and nurseries at church as well.
I have a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and have been babysitting since I was fifteen years old. I have experience with children ages three months to twelve years old and also have experience with twins, children that come from bilingual families, and special needs children. Additionally, I worked at a daycare throughout college and received CPR and First Aid training there. I am looking to start my first teaching job in August and have a passion for working with children. I love playing games, going outside, and doing learning activities with children of all ages.
I started babysitting in high school and quickly fell in love. Working with kids brings me joy. I have been a nanny short term for several families and for a time relied on babysitting alone for income. I volunteer at my church with the kid and preschool ministries at least twice a week and on Wednesday nights I lead a class of 3 year olds. I get attached to the kids I work with and therefore their happiness and well-being is important to me.
I grew up helping my two oldest sisters raise their daughters and started babysitting as soon as I was old enough to. When I started high school, I was accepted into the Early Childhood education program they offered and spent my four years there pouring my heart into that program. I have been a teacher for ages 1-4 but have experience with all ages. I work in the nursery at my church and I am the Sunday school teacher for preschool age. I'm back in the Tampa Bay area and attending nursing school.
Although I grew up near Washington D.C. and went to college here in St. Petersburg, I have traveled to various countries over the years to study, work and volunteer. In my time abroad I've learned about different cultures and strengthened my values. These experiences have pushed me to want to work in the helping professions and have broadened my horizons, as I've discovered a lot about myself and the world around me.
I started babysitting when I was 15 years old. I have always had a passion to work with children. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Social work and Psychology from USFSP in May. Currently I work at a Safe Place teen shelter as a Youth Development Specialist that houses kids ages 10-17. I have worked with infants up to 17 years old.
I have been babysitting since I was about 15 and have worked with children from ages of infancy to 12 years old. I've worked with children in group and individual settings. I am involved with Vacation Bible School at my church with up to 20 children in my group. I also go to Honduras every summer for a mission trip and work with all of the kids there and try to interact with them as much as I can with the little Spanish I know!
I have babysat children from infants to 13 years old, as well as volunteering in my church's nursery. I also have worked in numerous summer camps, being a counselor at my church's summer camp as well as the Boys and Girls Club. I ran a camp for children who were impacted by tornadoes in Alabama. Throughout high school, I was in a program called Little Spongers, where I worked with children aged 3-5 every day. With my experience in Little Spongers, I became CDA certified, as well as CPR and First Aid certified.
I am a Kindergarten teacher at a private school in Palm Harbor. Last year I worked with a special needs student one-on-one as his aide in the classroom. I still assist the special needs students in my class, as well as in the first-grade classroom and third grade. I have been babysitting since I was about 13! And before that, helped take care of my baby brother and younger sister from the age of 10. I've worked in two daycares and volunteer every week in my church's children's ministry (mostly the Nursery). I am also a youth leader for middle school and high school! I have experience from infancy to the age of 18.
