I have babysat since I was a child. Throughout high school I volunteered at the counseling troubled inner-city youth (elementary and middle school-age). I was responsible for roughly 8 children at a time all day and over night; responsibilities entailed hiking with the kids and educating them about the wilderness, supervising during outdoor activities, meal time, and over night, and coordinating conflict resolution classes. I also volunteered at an elementary school in Concord as a teacher's aide for an after school summer program for a class of 1st graders. When I was 18 I started my first nanny position in San Ramon, CA taking care of an infant boy, a 6 year old boy, and a 9 year old girl, full-time. The two older children both had learning disabilities, and emotional disorders. I was responsible for caring for the baby full-time. I took the older children to and from school, and to and from after school activities, helped with homework, and supervised various activities. Light house keeping, and cooking. I worked with this family for a year until I was no longer needed, and still remain in touch with the family. I also nannied for a family in Danville, CA for 3 years. 2 boys, ages 6 and 9, part-time. I was responsible for picking the boys up from their schools, helping with homework, supervising play, and taking to and from sports and other activities. I also took care of the family pets while they were on vacations. In 2008 I started working for a single mom of two. The children were ages 1 and 5. I watched the baby full time, and the 5 year old after school where I helped with homework. I also did laundry, light housekeeping, and some meal prep. I am CPR certified.
