I first started working with children during my Sophomore year in high school as an assistant dance teacher for an after-school program at a school. It was focused on girls who were in the third grade. In 2008, I nannied for a family. The kids were ages 5 years old and 3 months old when I started. I was with then for about a year. Unfortunately the family decided to move to Antioch. My duties for this family was to help out the eldest child with their homework. I would mostly help out with the baby which involved feeding, playing, reading, and entertaining her while the mother did work around the house. In November of 2009, I nannied for a family of three. The family has a daughter who was 5 months old when I first started. I worked for them for about a year as well. The grandma of the child retired so she took over on caring for her. My duties for this family only focused on the daughter. It involved feedings, playing with her, teaching her new things; such as-colors, shapes, how to crawl, songs, etc. and making sure she was clean and well groomed. During this time I also did occasional babysitting for a family of 5. At the end of April of 2009, I nannied for a family. When I first started the kids were 5 months and 3 years old. I worked for them for 3 years and still work for them occasionally. Their needs have changed and they don't need me as much as they used to. My duties for them involved me getting the girls ready for the day, arts and crafts, preparing meals and snack, light housekeeping, helping with homework, taking/picking up the eldest from school, reading to them, putting them to bed occasionally, etc. In 2012, I started to work as an assistant teacher for a child care center as well. I would basically be a substitute. This involve age group from infants to preschool age kids. During this time I also did occasional babysitting for a family of 4

I first started babysitting when I was 13 years old. My mother would not let me babysit until I was a certified babysitter. So I took a babysitting class at the Red Cross, and now I am a certified babysitter who can do CPR. I have babysat many times for neighbors all around my block. I have taken care of a little girl, while her sister had a birthday party at the house. I took care of two little girls who spoke french and english while the mother went out to a parent meeting at their school. I took care of twins, a boy and a girl, twice, when their mother had to go to work. Also I have been an Outdoor Education cabin leader for the past two years. I helped watch the children and naturalists on trails, helped put children to bed, wake them up, help them with showers, and watch over them at all times.

I have been caring for children professionally over the past 35 years. My own children are a 25 yr. old daughter and 20 yr. old twin sons. I can't say I have a preferred age because I feel there is joy with all ages and milestones. From the time I was 15 yrs. old I had a regular nanny position two days per week for two little girls, one of which was 4 months old when I began. She grew up to become my nanny. I maintain close relationships with many of the families I've cared for over the years. The last baby I took care of was my 25th besides my own children.
