I can babysit your child or multiple children (at a slightly higher rate). I've been working with children on a professional basis for almost 10 years and on a casual basis for about 15 years. I have experience with children six weeks to eighteen years old.
I can entertain your child in your home, or, with your permission bring them out in the community to the beach/park/movies/mall/library/other community location, depending on their age and interests and your comfort level. I can read them stories and play games or do arts and crafts with them. I usually try to limit screen time but will follow whatever guidelines/requests you have.
I will leave your home just as clean as I found it, and I can cook your child a healthy meal if you want/need me to.
Please let me know the age(s) of your child(ren) and when you would need my help. Mahalo!

About Lindsey Borg
I am a full time special education teacher and part time waitress. I like to be outside as much as possible, but when the Hilo rain prevents me from enjoying the sun, the sand, or the waves, I'll prob...ably be inside reading or creating. I love camping, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, and SUPing. I am trying to learn how to surf. I also enjoy cooking, baking, coloring, knitting, crocheting, and sewing. I was born in Savannah, Georgia and grew up in northern Connecticut, where I lived in Torrington, Litchfield, Bantam, Storrs, and Manchester. I relocated to the Big Island in 2014 and have fallen in love with the Hilo community. I have my bachelor of science in special education with a concentration in science and my master of arts in educational psychology, with a graduate certificate in positive behavior interventions and supports. I love teaching and think education can solve most of the world's problems, however I think our current educational systems are very broken. I have lots of ideas on how to fix them but am working on building my experience, network, and resources. For this reason I'm active with HSTA and am the Hilo representative of HYPE (Hawaii Young Professional Educators). I also currently run an after school gardening program, which is a learning experience for me just as much as it is for the children, but it's definitely a world of fun. My current life goals are to lose weight, get out of debt (even though I was on full academic scholarship for all of my undergraduate, and I attended a public state university, one year of graduate school has devastated me financially), get organized, and live a more minimal lifestyle. show moreOpen to other proposals
