Being a nanny is currently a favorite role of mine. I am well suited for it in many ways, as I am very nurturing and caring, and also energetic and fun-loving. I have worked with kids for about 20 years -- I started babysitting when I was 10, and from age 17 to present, I have worked primarily with youth. This includes a total of 6 years as a full-time nanny, occassional babysitting, daycare, summer camps, tutoring, and 2 years as a substitute teacher (grades K-12). I have some experience (but not extensive) with special needs kids, but would welcome the opportunity for more. I love being very active -- with younger children (including infants), I enjoy going out every morning for 2-3 hours to play at parks, take walks, library story time, swimming, or other local events that are age appropriate. With older kids I like to do as much as we can, such as the beach, museums, zoo, parks and other creative ventures.

I currently nanny for a family in Santa Clarita and have happily been with them for 2 years now. The youngest girl is starting preschool this summer (she's getting so big!) so my hours will be cut because of this so I'm looking for something that could fill my time on the days that I am not with them. This is the second family I have worked for the first family I am still in contact with and see them on a regular basis I was with them for 3 years.

I came here from Ethiopia 40 years ago as a teen and successfully brought over and cared for my siblings, eventually their children and of course my own son. I owned my own business for years, but I recently sold it and love spending my time focused on nurturing little ones.

I grew up caring for my own siblings and started babysitting at age 12. I have always been active with youth, my first job was as a camp counselor, a gig that I followed up with several more summers spent at camp as a counselor and eventually, the assistant camp director. Summers working at camp were my favorite, and I always have a game, song or craft up my sleeve. In my career I have focused extensively on children with disabilities. I have worked with them in after school settings, in home as a nanny, as a teacher's aide and for a year at LAUSD as a special education teacher.
