I am a 38 year old stay-at-home mom. I have been taking care of children of all ages for as long as I can remember starting with my very large family. I babysat cousins and my little brother until I completed a "babysitter course" at 12 years old and began working for neighborhood families throughout middle and high school. I had a variety of jobs in college but my most influential position was as a full time nanny for a newborn with cleft lip/cleft palette. After graduating with a degree in Human Development and Family Relations from the University of Connecticut I became a pre-school teacher for a year followed by a substitute teacher in grades K-12 while beginning a Master's Degree program in Guidance Counseling. It turned out to not be for me and I decided to go back to taking care of children on a more one-on-one level. 12 years ago I began a nanny position and stayed until their girls no longer needed care. I am now looking for a part time position with a family that would be comfortable with me bringing my 4 year son along. I'm open to working with another infant, toddler or after school help. My son and I are very easy-going, social and flexible! Please contact me with any questions, thank you!
