For 3 1/2 years I have been an Infant Master Lead teacher in an Outdoor preschool in Santa Barbara. The youngest I've had in my classroom is 2 months old! I have an Early Childhood Education degree and am CPR/first aid certified. Babies are one of my passions and I love to nurture the children I care for.
I have been a nanny on 3 different occasions. The first job was with a 10-year-old autistic boy and his younger sister. I did light housekeeping, made meals, drove them to appointments, did recreational activities with them and helped them with homework. The second job was with a 10-year-old autistic boy. I also did light housekeeping, made meals, provided transportation to his appointments and helped him with his homework. The third nanny job was with a 3-month-old baby girl. I traveled in the USA with the mom when she had to attend meetings. When home we would go on many walks. I also have 11 years of experience working with special needs children at a public elementary school.
I love animals, I have 2 dogs, going on walks, hiking in the hills, birding, gardening, reading and baking! I have a vast array of life experience that I feel enriches my ability to share the world with the children I care for. I am very adaptable to the learning needs of children, my son started reading before he was three years old!
I feel that stability is so important in a child's life, so if a long term commitment is needed, I am willing to make one.
In June of 2016 moved to Ventura and would love to work locally. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about this position.
