I started working with children as a babysitter for several families before graduating highschool. My first nanny position was in 2007 with a great family that has three children. A teenager, a 5yr. old and an infant that has so much personality! I loved working with this family and was with them for 1yr 1/2. Unfortunately they moved too far away for me to continue working with them. I later found the Raj family and was responsible for two amazing little boys at the ages of 3 and 5 years old. I helped with some housekeeping and personal assistance such as: Cleaned the children's bedroom every morning, prepared the boys for school along with breakfast and lunch.
Helped the boys with homework, also set up one on one personal tutoring sessions for one hour everyday teaching them to read, write, and spell. (It was such an accomplishment seeing Isaac, who's 3yrs old, say all of his ABC's and can now write his name and most words!)
I also bathed the boys daily and got them ready for dinner .
I Assisted with decorating their entire room, along with shopping for school supplies/clothes/haircuts, and coordinated/packed everything the boys needed for a family trip.
I really enjoyed fun activities such as going to the library to read or do puzzles, play in the park, swim in the pool, go to the San Francisco Zoo and Japanese Tea Garden.
