I am currently a substitute teacher for Bear Valley Unified School District working on my Masters degree in Education. I am the oldest of 6 kids and the oldest of all my cousins. Although I do not have official nanny experience, I have spent most of my life babysitting them. Over the summer I was a camp counselor where I and three other counselors were responsible for 24 girls for 5-6 days. We camped outside and I was woken many times a night for homesickness or other reasons. I was responsible for organizing activities, medication schedules, and meal times. Moving away from my moms house this year, this is the first time I am living with no kids in the house. I constantly watched my 6 year old brother and enjoyed every minute of it. I would be happy to share more if you are interested. My attention will always be on your child or children. I promise to keep them safe and occupied. I can help with homework even if necessary and make sure chores are done! Can't wait to meet you! Talk soon!
