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 have been babysitting since I was around thirteen but my most extensive childcare experience started around three years ago when I was accepted as a general counselor at a girls summer camp in Maine. I was in charge of a bunk of girls ranging from 11-13 but was also responsible for instructing classes for girls ranging from 7-14. After that initial summer, I started nannying for the camp owners' little boy Aidan, who was 1 at the time, during the non-camp season. I have been with them for almost three years and will end my term with them as nanny in May 2012 before I begin my last summer working at the summer camp. I am now a Division Head at the camp and this upcoming 2012 summer will be my fourth summer there, where I oversee not only children in my age group (12-15) but also the counselors in that age division. I also continue to assist in teaching tennis classes and creative writing classes to girls of all age ranges. For the past few years I have been surrounded by children of all ages in many facets, whether it be teaching them or caring for them. As a live-in nanny for Aidan, I have been on call at many different times of the day and have had him alone for up to four days while his parents were away on business. I am responsible for feeding him, putting him down for naps and sometimes bed, teaching him basic skills, setting up playdates, escorting him to preschool, implementing routines for things such as potty training or clean-up or basic manners, ensuring a clean and tidy environment with light housekeeping and just bonding with him as a child. Between working with him and being active at the summer camp, children have become a huge part of my life.

When I was just 11 I began babysitting for a family with 4 children under 6 years old. I nannied for this family until they had 7 children all various ages, activity levels, and I left for college. I have always loved children! I went to Macate, Peru to teach students after receiving my Elementary Education degree with an additional minor in mathematics. I've lead/directed Vacation Bible Schools in the US as well as 4 different countries. I worked as a Director over Children and Youth Ministries and Curriculum at a church in Birmingham, and then went to teach 7 years at a School. I have 18 years of nanny/babysitting experience. I am creative, heart-warming, and provide a safe healthy environment for children to be nurtured. My husband and myself have 2 children ages 1 and 3. We would love the opportunity to assist you as a parent in watching 1 more in our home. We are looking for the perfect fit.

I have worked with children from newborns to age 4. I have experience working with multiples as well beginning while volunteering all 4 years of high school for Infant Center in Springfield, Ohio. I have worked at a summer camp since I graduated from high school in 2006 with children ranging from ages 5 to 17 years old. I am passionate about making a positive impact in children's lives. I enjoy working, playing with them and helping them learn and explore their world.

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.
