Hi, my name is Kathleen Bradley! I am currently a freshman at Samford University in Birmingham, but I am originally from Acworth, GA, which is a town right outside of Atlanta. I come from a big family; I am the youngest of five siblings. We are all very close, and my family is a very important part of my life. However, I love it here in Birmingham, and I love Samford even more! Before I came to Samford, I did a lot of babysitting back home. I had two families that would contact me whenever they needed someone to watch their kids, who were in the age range from a newborn to seven years old. I absolutely love kids! I am majoring in Nursing at Samford, and I hope to one day become a Pediatric Oncology Nurse Practitioner. Additionally, I have worked at Chick-Fil-A back home for about a year and a half, and I have loved every second of it! Working there has taught me so much about how to interact with people and how to be a team player with my coworkers. Being a Chick-Fil-A team member has been such an enriching experience, and I am so excited to return for the Summer! Also, I was a Vacation Bible School counselor at my church for four years, assisting with everything from snack time to discussions about the Bible. I enjoyed it because the kids were so much fun to be around, and I loved playing a role in introducing them to the Faith. I believe that I would be a great babysitter because as I said above, I adore and respect kids. However, I can also be stern with them when necessary. Although my CPR certification needs to be renewed, I have been trained in CPR for adults, kids, and infants, so if the situation were to ever arise, I would be prepared. Lastly, I can be accountable to both you and your children. I understand that trusting your kids with a complete stranger can be a very nerve-wracking experience, but I assure you, if I was to babysit your kids, they would be in wonderful, caring, and loving hands. Thank you!
I read to the kids, conjure up imaginary tea parties, bake with them, have them help me make lunch/dinner for them (depending on their age), do arts and crafts (coloring and drawing), and play outside with them.
I took piano lessons for eight years, which allowed me to learn the importance of hard work. Additionally, I was very involved in my high school's Sports Medicine program for four years, which allowed me to both learn how to do First-Aid and understand how to manage my time wisely and effectively. Lastly, I was a member of the National Honors Society for my senior year of high school, was a Magna Cum Laude honor roll recipient and Summa Cum Laude honor roll recipient in high school, and was appointed to the Dean's List as a first semester college freshman. However, my academic success has not come easy. As I said above, my great work ethic has come from years of developing my time management skills and understanding the procrastination does not help you do better in school.
