Full-time hours

I am a former first grade teacher and current preschool teacher, working with 2-4 yr. old children. I also owned a business providing an after school enrichment speech/drama program. I have worked with children in various capacities for the past 20+ years. I am extremely energetic and passionate about what I do and come with great references from parents of students I have taught and babysat for. I am a very active individual who loves being outdoors, cycling and walking. In the classroom I enjoy instilling a love of learning to my students. I have been a preschool teacher for the past 19 months and love engaging in fun, multi-sensory/process art projects with students, allowing them to explore and express themselves in creative, fun ways. I have a wide variety of educational materials (puzzles,learning activities, books, etc) that I own personally and would love an opportunity to incorporate these into a childcare situation if age appropriate. I am a very hands-on teacher/caregiver, believing in positive reinforcement and praise to increase a child's self-worth and confidence level, making them feel pride in all that they do. I love to have fun with children and am always one to interact with them in my teaching experiences, both on the playground and in the classroom. The children I care for always know that I love and support them in all that they do. I also love to foster and encourage independence, helping them with tasks along the way, and then encouraging and praising their efforts and accomplishments, making them proud and eager to do more. I decided I wanted to be a teacher when I was in 2nd grade and never wavered from that desire. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education as well as Early Childhood units, and have worked with children for the past 20+ years in a variety of capacities. I am currently looking for a job outside of my preschool setting in an effort to acquire a higher paying job, while still being able to work with children. I am extremely reliable, responsible, organized, & hard-working and can provide references from my superiors at work as well as families that know me from the classroom setting as well as time spent caring for their children in their homes. I would love to find a nanny position that would enable me to continue to work with children and bring the knowledge of my teaching experience to enhance the job. Extensive background checks are on file for my current job.

My past childcare experience includes being a stay at home mother of two sons. I used to exchange daycare services with other stay at home mothers. I have always wanted to pursue a career in childcare, but in order to afford to raise my two children and have them attend college, I had to take a position which paid a much higher salary than a childcare position. Now that my sons are established, I can finally afford to pursue my first career choice in the field childcare. In July, 2013 I recently resigned from my 16 years. I held a secret clearance and worked as a Technical & Logistic assistant and later as a Property Administrator.

I helped my mother raise my siblings, since I am the oldest child. Once I was able to have a legal paying job, I immediately searched for childcare jobs. I could never see myself working in a field that does not involve helping develop the mind and care for young children. I have worked in two at-home daycare, babysat for multiple families, and I was a live-out nanny for one family for 8 months. Before I moved to California, I worked in Lincoln, Nebraska for a state-funded program. I worked as a before and after school Teacher Assistant for grades K-5 and in their daycare center with infants-preschool age children. Before my husband got stationed in California, I was attending school majoring in Early Childhood Education. At Family Service, we were required to attend educational classes, be certified in First Aid, Medication, and CPR. I have experience with children with allergies, celiac disease, hemophilia, and Asperger's. I stay active playing sports! I am very big into crafting and love to take fun photos and collect sea shells to make jewelry! I am a good cook and have many fun ways to get your picky eaters to eat their fruits and veggies! I have no problem with doing housework or running errands. I am always open to new activities/routines!

I am extremely experienced with children of all ages! Beginning with my mother and aunt's daycare where I obtained my skills working with multiple children at one time, to babysitting and becoming a nanny! At my mothers daycare I practiced preparing bottles, progressively transitioned babies from eating baby food and bottles into solid foods at appropriate age, putting babies on a schedule, taking them on walks in the stroller, reading, playing etc. I have taken child development classes, and I am CPR certified. I enjoy infant and toddler care because I love to watch the children grow up and I love that I can be a part of it. I have my own reliable transportation and I am a pet lover
