I am 47 years old and a resident of City of Orange. I am happily married to my husband of 19 years. I am also a stay-at-home mother of two children, boys ages 12 and 10. I worked for 10 years at a local fire department as a data entry technician before I became a stay-at-home mom when my first child was born. I have three units in Early Childhood Education, and I would like to continue my education in that field. My personal goal is to at least get 12 units. I have many years of experience working with children of all ages, not only raising my own children, but taking care of other mother's children and babysitting and being a part-time nanny. While my children were infants/toddlers themselves, I worked at local church for a group,I took care of the infants and toddlers for three years. There, I changed diapers, fed bottles, mixed formula, fed baby food, and rocked children to sleep. When my children entered preschool, I was able to get a teacher's assistant position at their preschool in Orange. I worked there for 6 months, as a teacher's assistant. I worked with the older 3 and young 4-year-old group of children. My duties as a teacher's assistant was to change diapers on the children who were not potty trained, monitor bathrooms, get the snacks prepared for snack time, help with painting, and read books to the children in circle time. I was there to help out the teacher in whatever was necessary to make things run smoother in the classroom. Once my children went to grade school, I was able to get a noon duty supervisor position at their school. I watched the children at lunch and recess to make sure they have a safe environment to play and eat in. I have worked there for 4 years. I enjoy working with children of all ages. I am currently working as a babysitter on Saturday evenings for a previous family who hired me in June of 2011. I just recently became their nanny/caregiver in August I work Tuesday and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. , but no later than 2:00 p.m. the little boy just turned 2 years old.

Over the past 6 years I've watched the children for two different families. My first nanny job I watched a little girl from the time she was 3 months until she started school as well as the little boy next store for the same amount of time. After about a year off I went back to work for the little boys family and watched their second son for the same duration, 3 months to school. After that I was lucky enough to roll over back to the first family to watch their son and I've been watching him now for about a year. I also did an internship in 2005 at the after school daycare program at xx.
