I am an outgoing person who LOVES being around children. I have taken care of children since the age of 12. I am a dance teacher and judo coach and look forward to dealing with the kids class every week. I ma a graduate student starting my PhD in the fall. I love to read, be outside and to engage children in play and making learning fun. I am a crafty person who loves to sit and work with kids to help them make special projects. I enjoy teaching as well for older children to keep math and science fresh all summer long. I look forward to finding a family which is a good fit and becoming a part of your childrens lives.

I began caring for children after taking the babysitters course as a 12 year old and realised I wanted to take care of children. I babysat and was a mothers assistant for a family on weekends and several full summers who had two small girls (when I started they were 2&4). As I matured the family also grew to have a third girl and I was able to take on more responsibility with the family. I was also refered to work with friends of the family which led to large gatherings where I cared for 5-6 children as the mothers spent time together. I also cared for several other families on a random need basis. I am also a certified dance teacher through SDTA and have taught classes up to 5 young children at a time. As a certified judo coach I have also assisted with large (up to 20) children in a martial arts setting.

I have an associates, and BSc. in Geology and will be starting a PhD in the fall. I love learning and Love to teach as well. My professional goals are to become a professor and teach in a University setting.

I started working for Laura when I was 12. I took care of her two girls and when she had a third, all three. I was a mothers helper and eventually a full babysitter for the family until I moved away for university at age 18. I have stayed in touch with the family and have shared in the girls lives even to this day. The eldest is now in univeristy, the middle child is just graduating this week and the youngest is entering highschool soon. I loved these girls like they were my own and still feel very protective of them. (this reference is in NS and has a three hour time difference from Edmonton)
