Instructor: Theresa Parent

A bit about me: I have taught Red Cross FA/CPR/AED classes for the past 17 years here in Fairbanks. I started out teaching the Girl Scouts and the Boy Scouts. Babysitter training is a fun way to learn the basics of starting your own business and the responsibilities and skills of being a good, safe babysitter.
