Nicole T. - Seeking Work in Ellington

Hourly rate10.40 / hour

My name is Nicole I'm 21 years old and I live in Ellington, CT. I'm currently a commuter student at Eastern Connecticut State University and therefore am seeking a part time job with somewhat flexible hours. I'm an education major and I plan on graduating in 2-3 years. I have multiple experiences in working and caring for children. I worked at a local daycare for 2.5 years where at one point or another I was an assistant teacher in all of the rooms. This being the case, I have experience work with all ages of children. I've also been a nanny for two families; one family consisted of two girls ages 6 and 7 while the other family had three children (8 year old twins and a 13 year old). The latter is my current job, but they will be moving a few weeks (mid November 2011), so I am seeking new employment. At both of these jobs I cooked for the children and drove them to various activities. I also helped with homework when necessary. I am comfortable with doing housework and laundry if needed. I would love the opportunity to work for your family and I hope I can be of assistance!
