Hi everyone! I am in the process of moving back home to Fairhope and am currently looking for a full-time, Monday through Friday, nanny position. I have been working in childcare for 11 years now and I am still going strong! I have cared for literally every age group (newborns to pre-teens). I have cared for my Irish twin nephews, who are now 3 and 4, from the moment they were both born. Those boys taught me more than I bargained for, but the joy I felt while caring for them was priceless. I absolutely love what I do. I graduated from the University of South Alabama and majored in elementary education. I have taken early childhood courses. I am extremely flexible and reliable. This is more than just a job to me. I genuinely love the kids I care for as if they are my very own.
