Hi! My name is Amy (22 y/o) and I am currently finishing my senior year at a college in St Augustine, FL. I am studying Sociology and Criminal Justice and have taken many classes that deal with human behavior. In high school I also took a CNA class in which I learned a lot about families and behaviors. I am originally from Illinois and come from a family of four kids and lots of cousins. I am very family oriented and love kids and am a huge animal lover. I am beginning my search for a full time nanny position after I graduate in June 2012. I am not ready to attend graduate school yet so this would be a long term situation. I have quite a bit of experience with all different age groups including infants to teenagers and special needs children (grew up taking care of my 4 disabled cousins). I have done babysitting since I was 12 and also worked for my church and families from my church. The past four summers I have nannied for 3 different families. The first family had 3 children, ages 6,8, and 13. The second family had one child who was under a year old. Last summer's family included two boys, 6 and 4. I spent the days taking the kids to activities including sports, the library, the pool, the movies, parks, zoos etc. I also do weekly babysitting while at school for a family of 2, ages, 9 and 11. This position has included overnight weekend stays. I would be happy to provide references for you on any of these families. I am a non smoker, non drinker, friendly, responsible, and mature young woman. As of right now I am not CPR certified but I plan to be before May. I work part time at my college's nurses office and know a lot about how to keep healthy and what to do in emergency situations. I am a great swimmer as my family had a pool growing up. I am open to learning new things such as different cultures or languages. I can adjust quickly to any setting and am very good at keeping busy. I nannied for four summers and loved every day with the kids I watched. I still keep in touch with the girls and get frequent emails regarding their school year. It was the best four summers being able to relax and take care of such wonderful kids. I had the great opportunity to watch them play sports and learn new things. I got to see their excitement when I told them something we would be doing that day, or when they'd tell their parents with such excitement! Seeing them enjoying themselves made the whole summer worthwhile! That is why I enjoy nannying and what I get from being a nanny. I have been babysitting since I was very young. As I grew older I found I really liked taking care of kids. I babysat for multiple people within my church community and even did babysitting for my church itself. I speak some Spanish and have about 3 years of schooling in the language, but do not speak it fluently. If you are interested in a long term nanny who will treat your children with kindness and respect while keeping them safe and learning please let me know. I also would be willing to nanny any newborns out there while their mom returns to work! Thanks

Have you considered a nanny share?
