I have several child care and jobs experiences, in Brazil we start working early. Before first coming to the USA, my last job was in a government program, temporary Environmental police (just administration.) I was voluntary in a school one day per week. On weekends, I was a teacher at home, basic English skills for my nephews (age 12 and 6), and I teach artworks for my nieces (age 12 and 9). I used to work at my sister's store as she needed my help. Also worked at offices during high school internship. Then in 2011, I decided to have a different experience coming to the USA as an Au pair. It was great! I took care of a girl age 4 and a boy age 12. In 2012, I returned to Brazil, and had the opportunity to work in a language school for kids teaching what I have learned here during my Au pair year. I got married and we came back to the US with studies goals. All my jobs were a blessing to me. I learned a lot in all aspects. It made me try my best at different situations. I have done some occasional babysitter now. on Sundays, I began Portuguese classes for kids above 7 years old at church. I hope we can talk and I will be happy to talk more about me and meet your family! :)

I am a former pediatric RN with experience in newborn ICU, well-baby, and pediatrics (children of all ages) who has made the transition from the hospital to being a nanny...and I love it. Being able to focus on children and their families as a whole and not just during times when they are sick is very fulfilling. I am currently working as a live-in nanny/house manager for a two physician family. Dad has already established his practice in another city and Mom is finishing her last year of residency in June. They would love to have me relocate with them but Mom is going to stay home for a while and work on Baby #2. This is great for her but leaves me looking for a new family to love and nurture. I am organized and reliable, have a clear criminal background and safe driving record. I am a good cook and love to integrate household management duties, such as grocery shopping, with educational opportunities for the children. I believe in limited TV and like to get my children out each day to explore their environment. Currently we have access to many parks, the zoo, and a children's museum that adds a variety of educational opportunities to foster their growth and development. I like to include the children in everyday tasks also. They love to assist with making cookies and like to be "helpers" in other aspects of family life. I would love to hear from you and will be glad to answer any other questions and discuss your family's needs. Hope to hear from you soon!

Working in childcare from my first ten years experience was different than being a nanny. It is like being part of their family. Working with the children on a one on one basics has been a great learning and training experience for me. Each and every child has their own personality they are inquisitive to get to know you and gain your trust and love. I think once a child feels that security to know you are there for them. This makes the guide lines, structure and respect much easier to establish while becoming their nanny. The beginning is always a challenge for us all, times I will always cherish. My outlook on being a nanny is a very special gift you can give to a family. But it is a job where you must all work together.

I have been a Respiratory Therapist for almost 13 years and I recently decided to change career paths. After graduating from college I worked in the Labor and Delivery Department of a major hospital in Savannah, Georgia where I assisted with all high risk births. I also worked in Pediatrics extensively with children of all ages and I am certified in CPR and ACLS. When I was in high school I use to do a lot of baby sitting, again with children of all ages. I have 3 nieces and 1 nephew that I spend time with, ages 4 months to 10 years old. We read, sing, swim and go to the park to play. I've never been a nanny before but I have had extensive experience working with and being responsible for numerous children.

My relevant experience is quite diverse and I have been blessed to serve with children at two churches while completing my bachelors degree from Samford University a semester early this December. I am currently employed as a student ministry intern at xx Church in Birmingham, Alabama. In this program I spend 20 hours a week connecting with students. I spend time in fellowship with students in their school environment and leading a discipleship group. Additionally I will participate in planning worship services and by the end of the semester have spoken to a group of 250 students on several occasions. In addition to working at Trinity three days a week I also serve on Sunday mornings at xx Church as a leader in the middle and high school department. Through these experiences I have had the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to be a youth care taker. I have also worked a lifeguard for 5 years and am CPR certified. I am excited to have the chance to speak with you more and learn about your family & I am available for an interview scheduled at your convenience. Thank you again for your consideration.
