In my home country Colombia I had a lot of experience with babies and older kids as well since I was in hight school i used to babysit with my sister's friends and my neighborhood. While I was in the school I used to teach artcraft, english, to kids in social work. I have really good memories about my last experience I had in Colombia they were two little happy girls who loved go to swim and the park. In the U.S I have been Au pair for 1 year. this one has been a great experience getting in the american culture. I am taking care about twins they are 2 years old, I am the most of the time by my self with the girls I'm responsible to do the laundry, keep the playroom and bedroom clean, prepare their meals, give them a bath and keep them busy with different indoor and outdoor activities. we are really enjoying this summer going to the park, the pool, some museums, the beach, going to the zoo and many more interestes places that we have around the area.

I have been a nanny for over 10 years and I have vast experience, being from a family of 14 children I have honed excellent skills. I am an energetic, fun-loving, outgoing person. I like to engage children in all kinds of activities and I participate as well. Some outings are educational, such as going to the library on a regular basis... finding a variety of parks and play areas for the children. Outings to Disneyland... Legoland. fun parks and sometimes just kicking a football or soccer ball or having a game of baseball. I am very creative with arts and crafts. Always fun and it keeps the young mind creative.

I have been a nanny in the Palisades and Marina del Rey area and more recently a swim teacher & preschool substitute teacher to children at a nursery school in West Hollywood. I also conduct a few private lessons. I have helped raise my 2 nephews (I now have 3). I have also worked as a babysitter since I was young. Most children simply take to me and I love working with them.

As a Moroccan, few people hire babysitters or nannies. Instead, responsible young adults are expected to provide these roles for extended family members. Because of these traditions my experience as a babysitter and nanny has mostly been limited to children of foreign embassy workers and family members.
