I began babysitting for children when I was 13 years old. As a babysitter I have been responsible for the care and feeding of infants (including infant hygiene and diaper changes) and young children. I enjoy and make a point of actively engaging with children in all of their activities, including playing games both indoors and out, reading and watching television and appropriate, approved movies. These experiences with children inspired me a to become a teacher. I earned my BS in elementary education from the University of Central Florida in 2000. In my work and experience as substitute teacher for 5 years I developed a preference for work with a core group of students every day rather than rotating to a different classroom every day. In this way I could develop continuity with my students. I also volunteered at my church teaching weekly bible lessons to grades 3-5. As the school district I was in began to shut down schools I was able to secure a job tutoring 3-5 year old children in reading/phonics and later added tutoring in basic math skills. I enjoyed working with and teaching students in small groups of three (3). Recently I have begun working at a day care center located in San Ramon. I work with children aged 6 weeks through 12 years old children doing numerous age-related activities. I also clean up after them, and make a point of regularly disinfecting the children's toys in order to minimize the transmission of colds and flu's. I stay current on my CPR certification for this position. I look forward to the opportunity to work with small groups of children as their nanny, preparing and teaching their lessons as well as teaching them age-appropriate life skills. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

I truly enjoy being around children. I come from a big family of five girls and my mom and dad. I have three younger sisters that I helped my mom care for as I was growing up. My mother also ran a Day Care out of our home for most of the years that I was growing up. I would help her take care of some of the children and over the years became very comfortable and confident in babysitting. I am going back to school to get credits in Early Childhood Education because my current and long-term career plans include working with children. I am Christian, which shapes every part of my life, so as I serve and care for children, I know that I am using my gifts of kindness, patience, fun-heartedness, and energy to help others. I look forward to working and having fun with your family! Thank you for considering me as a nanny for your family!

I am a responsible,experienced nanny.I love working with children and being able to help out families.My past responsibilities as a nanny were grooming,preparing meals,pick up and drop off,and also creating fun and educational activities. To me working with children is not just a job,it is an opportunity to teach a child great values and show them how to be a wonderful,caring person.That is exactly what I love about working so closely with children.If I can interact with one child and have them take something good from it,even if it is as little as a good memory,then I feel like I have done my job.I always enjoy making that one on one connection with the child.

I have a grown son of my own and I helped my sisters to raise their five children and I continue to help my nieces and nephews with their children as well. I have an autistic grand-niece that I have cared for. My very first experience with special needs was when I was in high school and I volunteered at a school for both the mentally and physically challenged. I worked there two entire summers, 30 + hours a week. I took care of my own elderly mother for over 20 years all the way up to the day she passed away from cancer at the age of 87. I have been a house and pet sitter for well over 20 years as well and have many repeat customers who always feel comforted knowing their pets and their homes are well cared for in their absence.
