I've been nannying for the same two families for about 4 years now, I'll be sad to leave them. But I'm ready to find a new family in my also new location. I love kids they always teach me so much. I specialize with infant care, though truly I am fond of all ages. I enjoy cooking, I follow a pretty healthy all natural food plan myself. I graduated top of my class and will be able to efficiently assist in almost any schooling needed by the kids. I have transportation. And I get along greatl with kids seeing as though I could pass as an sibling, a much older sibling. Kids seem to respond week to me for many reasons I suppose.. I'm very upbeat and compassionate however I don't have a problem maintaining control of any given situation.
