Amber Haning

Looking for Weekend Jobs

Sitter in Takoma Park

My name is Amber Haning, I'm 23 years old and just graduated with an art degree from Frostburg State University. I grew up in Germantown and just moved back to work as a full-time art conservator in DC. Through middle and high school I babysat various children from the church I attended and I watched my next-door neighbors twice-a-week for a number of years. The majority of the baby-sitting experience I have was through my next-door neighbors. When I was in 8th grade, my neighbor came over with her 6-week old boy and asked my mother if I would like to babysit two nights a week while she worked part time. I happily agreed and over the years they have had two more children of their own and adopted a niece. Even after I left for college I stayed very close with them and babysat while I was home (even if their parents were home and just needed a little break). Today that 6-week old boy is 11 and attending the same middle school I went to when I began babysitting him. I make regular trips to visit them. I do not believe that watching television or playing video games is a good way for children to spend a lot of time. I like to get kids active, especially if it involves using creativity and imagination. I ran a museum in college for 2.5 years and always wanted to start a children's program, but could never find quite enough funding. I've been trying to think of ways I could make a little extra money without wearing myself too thin, and I think weekend babysitting might be the perfect way to do it. I love kids and have a lot of fun getting them thinking and excited about the world around them (I think someday I'd really like to get in to teaching). The internet seems like a weird way to advertise for this sort of thing, but I'm not sure where else to turn. I'm trustworthy and understanding of any concerns a parent may have with inviting a stranger into their home to watch their children. If you think I may be a good fit for your family, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns I'd be very opening to meeting up and discussing details before making any decisions. My number one priority is building trust with a family and honoring it. Hoping to hear from you soon! -Amber Haning
