Class Experience

I took my roll as a babysitter very seriously in my teens. Subsequently, I was very successful with getting jobs and having steady income. However, the most important thing for me was that the children knew I cared about them and had fun. Because of that, I hear to this day (a couple decades later) from the people I used to babysit that their  memories of me are all fond. I have been to graduations and weddings and baby showers for many of my former “kids” and it is a delight to be a positive person in their lives.

I will share a few printouts. The students should have a binder to compile their papers and for taking notes.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There will be one class devoted to discussing what is appropriate between the babysitter and the employer.  I want to equip students to deal with any unexpected things that, hopefully, will never happen. I will keep this appropriate and light hearted.

Also, I will stress the importance of communication between the student and their own parents. I will ask the parents to open a dialogue with their student about developing a plan for staying safe and having a “Rescue  Protocol”. I generally do not condone babysitting for strangers, but even with fairly well known acquaintances, there can be that unpredictable issue and students need to know they have the power to protect themselves and that their parents will help them.

About Me

Hello! I am a product of homeschooling and I have homeschooled many children over the last decade, some of them are my own children! 🤣 I love working with children of all ages, but especially 9 to 14-year-olds. There is just something about that...
