Ms. Kalin

Birthday: July 23rd

Hometown: Tallahassee, Florida

Favorite Crayola color: Middle Blue Green

Background: I am a recent graduate of TCC and will be attending Flagler College to major in Special Education and Elementary Education. I have been working with kids almost my entire life. I have a younger sister and I have always been the one to watch after her and her friends. I started babysitting when I was in 6th grade when I began working childcare at my church and I have been caring for children ever since. I have worked with kids ranging from newborns, all the way up to teenagers. I also have 8 years of experience caring for students with special needs and I absolutely love it! It’s the reason I’m now majoring in Special Needs. Throughout high school, I worked as a lifeguard at several different pools and I worked at Premier Health and Fitness as well. Senior year, I started working at Maple Street Biscuit Company and now I am currently working at Canopy Oaks Elementary School. During the school year, I work in the afterschool program and during the summer, I work for their summer camp program. On the side, I work as a part-time babysitter for Seminole Sitters and my church. I absolutely love kids and plan on having a huge family!! 

She’s cared for children as young as: 2 weeks old

Future plans: I plan on becoming special needs teacher. Someday I hope to be married, start my own family and have lots of kids! I want at least 5, but that's only if that’s the Lord’s plan and He gives me enough patience for that :)

When she’s not babysitting: When I'm not babysitting I am either at school, studying, hanging with friends, or probably at the beach! The beach is one of my favorite places to be. 

Defining quote: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart.” - Colossians 3:23
