Hi, I'm Raquel. I'm 16 and I love kids! I'm new at babysitting but I'm positive that I could be a really successful babysitter. I enjoy interacting with children and getting to explore their unique personalities and traits! To me, teaching children about their emotions and how to handle them is important. This means that I take care in the way that I speak to them and treat them so that they are able to learn about their emotions they grow. I want to pursue Mathematics in College and I'm an honor roll student! I currently work at an elementary/middle school as an aftercare associate.
