Hello Humboldt County! Thank you so much for having me! :) My name is Mishelae. Proudly presented to you by the magnificent Bay Area. I'll start with a where it began:
It was instilled in me at a very young age that consistently Immaculate house ease every families normal LOL. All is well that ends well. In my adult life I've ended up absolutely loving cleaning and organizing. I'm a rare breed. Well I guess if nothing else I would want you to take away from this brief bio the fact that I am a great of many things. Homes, children of all ages, pets, plants, personal shopping as well as styling. I adore children, none of my own just yet, but one day :). Ideally I would absolutely love to devote my time care and energy into a loving family who is looking for a live in nanny. I'm fortunate enough to be an independent contractor in almost every skill that I possess, meaning that there is more than a little wiggle room in my availability.

I have been working with children for almost my entire life and I love it! It began when I was a child and was forced to help raise my siblings due to our chaotic and unstable life at the time. I grew up with four younger siblings and was always the one caring for them, taking them places and teaching them a variety of things. From the experience I gained during this time I was able to begin babysitting for our neighbors and family friends in my early teens. In 2000 I worked for a childcare program. This was one night a week and the children were from the ages of one to 14. There was some homework help offered but mostly we organized and implemented activities with the children to keep them occupied while their parents attended the workshop offered that evening. In 2004 and 2005 I volunteered. I was in two different academic programs at two different elementary schools, one for each year of service. The first program was called Project Scholars. Here I worked one-on-one with third and fourth graders to improve their reading and writing abilities. This was done through a variety of activities and regular sessions. My second year I worked in their Cool School program. This was an after-school enrichment program and I was responsible for the 5th grade class. I had two aids and together we created a lesson plan each week that included reading, writing, math, science, art and p.e. activities. We also offered homework help as well and were responsible for most disciplinary action inside the classroom. Also, in 2005, I worked as a tutor. For four months I helped an 11-year-old girl with Advanced Algebra. My time with her ended so quickly because her skills greatly improved, as well as her confidence, and my services were no longer needed. Then, in 2006, I was a nanny for a ten-year-old boy. I was responsible for picking him up from school and making sure he did his chores, homework, and music lessons. I helped him when he needed it in all three of those areas. We often went to the park, played basketball, walked around the city (this was in San Francisco), took trips to the library, and other various out-of-the house activities. I also brought art and science activities for us to do on a regular basis. In 2008 I was temporarily a nanny for three boys, ages 6 to 16, in San Jose, California. Duties included pick up/drop off from school and sports as well as light meal preparation and homework help/tutoring. Aside from that and throughout most of this time I have baby-sat and tutored privately on an irregular basis and have worked with children from 3 months to 16 years old. I would like to find more consistent work and that is why I am looking to return to being a Nanny for a loving and caring family.

I have many years of experience nannying for 1 year olds, 3 year olds and 6 year olds. I made breakfast in the mornings, played games, helped draw pictures, helped with homework. I have picked children up from school. Every family that I have worked with always trusted me with their children. I have never come across any problems while watching children but I know exactly what to do incase of emergencies. I have been CPR certified and am willing to get certified again. I have always had so fun working with children and they have always been happy I was their nanny or babysitter.
