My name is Erin Johnston, as you can see I do not have much nanny experience or many qualifications. I am currently 18 years old, I have my license and a clean driving history. I also have a car, but would not be comfortable driving children past Willow. I have babysat and would be happy to list the mother as a reference. I am graduating this May as head of my class, which reveals that I am a hard worker. I will be attending college this fall to work towards becoming an elementary teacher and it is for that reason that I am looking to support myself financially. As a senior I have had the opportunity to visit Talkeetna Elementary School in my afternoons and rotate around classrooms. I am not shy about being around children.
