Full-time hours

I am originally from a rural town in Pennsylvania. I am the 5th out of 6 children--raised in a loving & caring family. I have 10 nieces & nephews and MANY cousins (who have provided MUCH experience in child-care!) My parent's and coaches were diligent in building character traits like responsibility, respect, honesty and caring into me during my growing up. Not only have I done a great deal of babysitting since I was in high school to the present caring for many of my friend's children, along with teaching in schools & working with organizations(elementary through senior high ages), but also have been the nanny for four families (one in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI; one in Portland, Maine; one in New Smyrna Beach, Florida; one in Lake Placid, NY) during the past seven years. Any references that you would like from these families, friends or teachers I have worked with are available upon request.
