Since I grew up with my mom being a preschool teacher I always knew I would want to follow her footsteps. Of course when I was younger I would watch my neighbor children but when I was in high school is when I really started working with children in a daycare after school. When I graduated high school I got a retail job but realized I missed working with children so I began nannying. Ever since then I absolutely love what I do and being able to watch children grow along with teaching them everyday.
