I have experience with babies, toddles, twins, special education children, elementary children, and teens. All through college I did nanny jobs for two families in Los Gatos to pay for college. For one family, I took care of two small girls ages 5, 9. The other family had a small boy of age 10. That is where I got the love for teaching because we would do arts and crafts together, play sports, read books, do puzzles, and much more. I had to take them to/from school and sometimes to day camps. I also am part-time nanny for my niece that is 8 years old. She has soccer, basketball, karate, and art classes so I drive her to all that.
