I am experienced with children from the ages of newborn to 16 years of age. I have just recently completed a position which involved a 5 year old girl with Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy . I was with the family for 9 months. It was a difficult position, and very tolling on me emotionally and physically. However, once I got used to the routine and I got to know what she liked, it was much more fulfilling and rewarding, it wasn't so much as a job as she was a part of my life. She has a feeding tube that I had to syringe her liquid diet into, and also had a feeding pump that I had to prepare and hook her up to for a feeding. She also had to be fed orally. I would pick her up from school, bring her home and hook her up to the feeding pump. Afterwards I would bring her to parks around the area, including Purgatory Chasm in Sutton, and Treasure Island in Oxford. I brought her to the Eco Tarium as well here in Worcester. I also do housekeeping, and will run errands if needed. I have a valid drivers license, and have a spotless record. I have been trained in CPR, and wouldn't mind at all to renew my certification, it has been a while. I have been doing this type of work for about 18 years now on and off. I am a college student right now, but not one you may have in mind. I am 37 years old and have decided that I wanted to go back to school. I am studying Criminal Justice, Forensic Psychology and Criminology. I find that getting an education to educate and empower our children is highly important. I am working on my Bachelor's Degree and want to work for the crime scene unit. I am willing to do an Au Pair position (live-in) or babysitting (live-out) of your home. I am also willing to do just a housekeeping or pet care if you'd like. I am married to a retired Corrections Officer. Please do not let that hinder your hiring me. A lot of people think that by being married, it changes everything. I have done a live in Au Pair position in New York 2 1/2 hours away and only saw each other over the weekend. We are accustomed to being apart already. I had my own house cleaning business back in 1996 to 1999, I also wash and detail vehicles. I am willing to look after up to 4 children at a time. The most I have had was a set of three year old twin girls. I am a responsible and reliable person who has a great sense of humor. I am laid back, open minded, caring, thoughtful, have a lot of common-sense. I'm practical, original, fun, and out-going. I can think on my feet and am very quick to attend situations that need quick thinking and response. People tend to tell me that I have a great repore with their children. Maybe because it's easy for me to get down to their level and know what makes them laugh and have fun. I guess because I not only have been around so many, but maybe due to the fact that I too was once a kid, I don't know. My husband has two children, ages 12 (boy) and 13 (girl), so I also see what they're up to as well; for the older kids that I have babysat for. Things that I would do: Museums (science and sea), bowling, beaches, parks, playgrounds, make your own craft stores, sports fields, farms, zoos, they have trampolines, arcades, learning, and do it yourself stores everywhere you look. Of course I would do as the parents told me, if they have a set schedule, I have no problems with that. Routine is great! I always uphold the law of parents, they are the boss, and what says goes. I have many teaching and discipline ways, but, I do not do anything unless instructed by the parent...period. In closing, I also love to watch and play sports. I am a local, so I do route for the home team. I'm a wicked big Boston sports fan, Yankee fans need not apply, (I'm kidding) : - ) I did my last Au Pair job in New York. I do hope that you will take the time to read and ask any question that you may have. I am always open and honest with everyone. I am looking forward to meeting you, hopefully you will think that I could be a great addition to your family. Take care and have fun!

For the past ten years I have nannyed and babysat on a regular basis for a family who now has five children (ages 11, 9, 8, 5, 3). I began nannying for them when there were only two children and now there are five! I've also babysat for a family with two boys ages 6 and 7 and another family with a girl, 7, and boy, 5. Some of my responsibilities with these families include entertaining the children by playing a variety of games indoors and outdoors, bringing children swimming, bowling, the movies, picking up and dropping children off at school, extracurricular activities and friends houses, preparing meals for, cleaning up after, organizing their bedrooms and cleaning them, bathing, doing laundry and putting children to bed. I have also cared for children when they are ill and am capable of handling any unexpected (illness or injury) situation. I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Masters degree with a concentration in Literacy . I have been a full time teacher for the past four years (one year of third grade and the past two in kindergarten). I love working with children.

I began babysitting my next door neighbor's 2 children when I was in 8th grade and realized how much I loved it. Throughout high school, I babysat for families from my church as summer jobs and my senior year provided after school care for an 8-year-old severely autistic boy. As I graduated High school and began my freshman year of college, I wanted to continue babysitting. I have provided care for several families over the past 4 years as they have had need; whether that was providing morning care, afterschool care, or the sitter for date night. Over the years I have been able to experience the fun as well as hard work of child care. The best part about what I do is the unexpected moments when the children tell you that they missed you, or that they can't wait until you babysit again or just laughing when they say or do something funny and enjoying being together. I love being able to brighten their day and take their minds off missing mom and dad for a few hours.

In 2007, I worked with a 3 month old boy. He was very playful/active for his age. The family worked very close to home therefore during lunch time I would walk him in his stroller to visit his parents. The family had a very hyper dog but he was loving and protective. In 2008, I worked with another 3 month old boy who's mom worked from home and needed help from 10-5pm. He was a very happy baby despite the fact of having a disability which he eventually overcame. They also had animals, 2 dogs and a cat which were well behaved and easy to care for. Currently, I babysit for 3 children about 10 days per month. They are school age 3-7 years old. I help them with homework and make sure they eat a well balanced dinner and from time to time bathe them. They are great loving kids, very talkative and love to learn. We're always playing pretend which is great because it keeps their minds active and thinking.
