Babysitter in ,
Hello, my name is Katie. I am currently working as a behavioral technician at a private special education school that serves both autism and emotional support students. I provide 1:1 ABA therapy with a variety of students, the majority being nonverbal, ranging from ages 5 to 18. My primary goal is to make a difference and positively influence the lives of the children to whom I serve.
I am also attending graduate student at Ball State University (online campus). I have two more courses to complete to receive my M.A. in Special Education and certificates in Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). I attended Kutztown University where I pursued a Bachelors degree in Sociology with a minor Psychology. I have always loved working and caring for children. I do not have any children of my own, but I do hope start a family in the future. I believe that every child is unique and special in their own ways.
I have babysat children since I was 15 years old. My mother has babysat children for most of my life, and I have always been a great help to her when needed.I also have three nephews ages 1, 9, and 11 and a niece who is four-years-old that I have babysat since they were infants. I will babysit infants, toddlers, and children up to age 13-15. I specialize in special education and applied behavior analysis with an emphasis in autism, so I am more than willing to babysit individuals with autism and other developmental or learning disability.
I love summer time activities and being outside. I enjoy swimming, bike riding, hiking and camping. I also like playing fun and educational games that increase a childs interest in learning new skills. I also love playing board games, with one of my favorites being Trouble. I believe that children should always be put first before anything else. I feel that I am a great role model for young children.First Aid and CPR certified.
