Hi! My name is Madelon Dickerson I am 24 and I am from Cincinnati, OH. I recently graduated from Xavier University with a degree in communications. I am moving to Chicago August 1st so am looking to start beginning of August. I have been with my current family for five years and as sad as I am to leave them I am very excited to start a new chapter and with a new family.
My current family is a blended family, two girls aged 10 & 12 and two boys aged 8 & 15. I have created such a loving and lasting bond with all of them!
I previously was a lifeguard and taught swim lessons for 3 years, I also worked at a day care in college in the infant room to kindergarten. I have experience with infants 3 months to children aged 15. I also have a lot of experience with family’s with 3 to 4 children so I’m comfortable With any sized family.
I love to build relationships with the children but also with the entire family! I love getting to know children and encouraging them to be their creative self. I also enjoy engaging in activities and play with them. While it Is important to have fun I also now how to set boundaries and to create a mutual respect between myself and kids.
I am comfortable with dogs and can help with light housework and food preparation. I have my own car for transportation. I can commit to at least an entire year with your family and am happy to provide references from my current family. Let me know if we sound like a good fit :)
