JeMariah J. - Seeking Work in Palo Alto

Full-time hours
7 yrs of experience

I have experience working with children with ages ranging from newborns to early teenage years. While working with the children, it was my duty to feed them, monitor their activities and behavior, maintain their hygiene and a clean and safe area, help with homework and keep them entertained. I enjoy working with children and have done so all my life. Growing up with seven siblings and being the third oldest gave me a huge advantage on how to properly care for children, and along with my previous experience, it makes me a big candidate to be a nanny.
As stated above, I enjoy and have the necessary skills needed when it comes to working with children of all ages. I am a great problem solver, so if problem arises I will do my best to calmly settle it. I am not afraid when it comes to communicating with others, it is something that happens naturally for me. Looking after children always keeps me on my feet and keeps me busy, and it is always my goal to provide them with a fun, safe environment. I am looking for a position where I can continue to enhance my skills and continue to grow as a person, as well as keep both the parents and their children satisfied.
I am a very enthusiastic person and a hard worker. When I start a job, I like to get it done for it gives me a feeling of accomplishment. I believe that working as a nanny will give me this satisfaction and also help me make improvements within myself.

My fisrt language it's Spanish and I really enjoy to teach and see the kiddos how they learn it so quick!
