Mandy H. - Seeking Work in Avon

11.42 / hour

I grew up in a large family, raised with traditional values . Babysitting my way through college for numerous larger families, ages infant to 14 years old seemed second nature. After moving out to colorado I have found my specialty in my work field. As a fly fishing guide I regularly take kids out on the river and teach them to fish amongst other outdoor skills. In addition to my guiding experience I'm a certified Eagle Scout instructor and conducted all of the outdoor kids classes for Bass Pro Shops in Ohio.

I'm a bigger sister out of 4, where two of them are 7 and 9 years old and we all live with my mom who's a single mother, since I was really young I've always helped my mother with all house ditties including taking care of my brothers while she was working. For that I began to take care of some of my mother's friends kids during weekends, and sometimes at nights when some of them had some evening event. I am really attatched to my brothers, and that was my motivation to make every part time job I take to be the best for me and for the children, and I can proudly say that each experience tought me a lot. On the beggining of the last year (2008) I've also experimented a volunteer work at a public school at rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, Where I had to help children with their writing throught arts and crafts activities. It was a great experience, and it showed me a lot about the poverty in Brazil and how our improves are know showing up.

2 yrs of experience

Throughout my life I've had the privilege of working with several families and their children. From conducting In-Home therapy for kids with autism to living in Kenya for 3 months while working at an orphanage, kids have always been apart of my growth. I have a degree in Communication and Art, love the outdoors and am an avid hiker. I think its important to share your passions with the ones you surround yourself with. I love carrying out arts and crafts, getting the kids outside and keeping them active. Being a good role-model is the best gift to offer a child. With my creativity, reliability and responsibility, I think I'd make a great nanny.
