Before working for the past 10 months for a big family in Aurora (2,8,13,16),I worked as an Au Pair for this lovely family from January 2009 to September 2010 and I got back to work for them from December(2013)to April (2014), it means I have over two years experience spending 45h/week taking care of two kids (and now a 18 months baby too) and it has been pretty nice. When I started it kids were 3 and 5, now they are 8 and 9 and the toddler is now my major responsibility. I had a experience in Colorado babysitting a one month baby during 2 months, a Sensory Processing Disorder boy and 2 months experience being an 13 months old boy nanny back in 2010. In Brazil I used to be a babysitter since I was 12, especially for the kids of the Church I used to go and also neighbors and families/friends. My experience goes from newborns to teenagers. I worked with recreation to a kids' birthday place and on my last year of College (2011) I was a language teacher teaching kindergartners (3-5 years old) and Middle School students (9-15 years old). In 2012 and 2013 I was a Spanish and English teacher for a language school and taught students from 9 to 65 hears old. I got my degree in Literature, Language and Education, it helps me to have more experience with kids and develop my skills with them, since I'm planning on keep being a teacher when I get back to Brazil.

I have my B.S. degree from Auburn University in Human Development and Family Studies, with a concentration in infants, toddlers, and pre-school. I just completed my internship at a Center in Birmingham, AL. I finished with an A and a job offer. I had an amazing time here with the children and the center informed me they were very impressed. I was offered a teaching job at the end of my internship, but turned it down because I do not want to live in Birmingham. The parents of the children I taught spoke to the directors and been very complementive of me. I have babysit 4 of my students multiple times. The two main classrooms that I was placed in were 4-10 month olds and 18-24 months old. The center has children ranging from 4 week olds to 5 year olds. I have floated around and spent time with all of the age groups. I spent the majority of my 450 hours with the almost 2 year olds (my concentration for my degree is infants and toddlers). I have also experienced teaching 3 and 4 year olds from the AUELC. Prior to my internship, I was nannying a 6 month old girl until she was 14 months, when I had to leave for my internship. I was also teaching English to a number of Korean students aged 2-6 years old. I am familiar with travelling (I lived overseas for 10+ years).

I worked with ages 6-10 year old children, I helped with homework and creating activities for the children. I was a live-in nanny for a 10-month old girl and a 4 year old boy. I took the 4 year old to school and helped take him to his extra curricular activities. I came up with activities for the 10-month old while the 4 year old was at school. I have worked at a couple preschools and made lesson plans for the children and the classroom. I was a nanny for an 8 month old in Seattle, Washington for almost 2 years, I taught her colors, shapes, ABC's, how to use her words when asking for something.
