  About Me
Hi! My Name is Michal. I'm 23 years old and finishing up my last undergraduate year at McGill, where I'm studying to become an elementary school teacher.

I have been babysitting for over 6 years, working at day camps, sleep away camps, schools and after-school programs. I love working with children in any context, and my favourite challenge is being able to get to know each child's unique personality, quirks, talents and interests so that I can maximize upon them in my role as caregiver/teacher/sitter/nanny/tutor (etc.) and to help build a dynamic, special and meaningful relationship with the tykes in my care.

I'm one of five kids in my family - the oldest, I'm engaged to be married (so excited!) and have an awesome cat named Adora.

If you have any questions about me or are interested in hiring me for a position with your family, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Happy searching!

Michal R.

My salary would be negotiable depending on what my duties would be, how many children I would have to take care of, etc. Please don't hesitate to call and ask.

However despite having my old card, my certification is expired and I have not gotten it renewed since. Again, please let me know if this is an issue and if retaking the courses would be a necessary part of the application process.
