Ms. Lisa

Birthday: October 18th

Hometown: Palm Beach, FL

Other languages: Haitian Creole

Favorite Crayola color: Razzmatazz

Background: I am a recent college graduate from the University of Florida and now getting a masters degree at Florida State University. During my time at the University of Florida, I worked with a variety of children - I worked as a Micanopy Tutor, I had an internship through the Yellow Ribbon Youth Extension Service, I have volunteered, and I have worked as a nanny. Before college, I was in the Early Childhood Magnet program at my high school. In the academy, there were many requirements to become a certified preschool teacher. One requirement was to complete 480 hours or more of experience working with children aged five years and younger. Working with such a young age group taught me a great deal about how to be patient and more tolerant when working with other individuals. Another requirement was creating lesson plans, which taught me how to plan effectively and create projects and materials that engage children in their four areas of development, while also having an educational base. I enjoy working with children of all age groups, while creating fun and engaging activities. Having my own nieces and nephews, I try to stay up to date with things that children like to have more relatable discussions and commonalities.

She cared for children as young as: 8 weeks

Future plans: Upon receiving my masters in mental health counseling, I want to work for the VA Hospital or join the military.

When she’s not babysitting: I enjoy reading, I love watching crime investigation shows, and I like finding new places to explore.
