I enjoy spending time with children and accompanying them through their world of exploration and wonder. I have experience not only with toddlers but with children who are school age and teenagers.

Since I was 13 I started baby sitting around the neighborhood and it started to spark my interest, because i really enjoyed working with children. In high school I took birth to three, pre school, pre k, and human development all three were hands on classes where we had to create lesson plans and teach them to the children that came in to our high school for a daycare. In human development we had to go out into close by middle schools and elementry schools, with the help of the teacher we would work on lesson plans and then I would teach them as well as watch her teach, I was also expected to go on feild trip days which was so much fun because it was a different learning enviroment for the children. after high school I started working at a daycare near my home and I fell in love with it, I became the head teacher in the infant toddler room, where the ratio was 1 to 4. I am currently going to college for a degree in early childhood education.

Aside from the occasional sitting for family and friends, I've been a nanny since I was 17 (I am now 23). I started with this family when the youngest was 2. I would get off the bus at their house and take care of her for a few hours. It was more like a play date rather than a job! I stayed with this family until 2009 when I moved from Maine to Connecticut. At some points it was full time and at other times it was part time. From being with this family for so long I was like part of the family and ended up occasionally sitting for other family members or even taking them during the day with the 4 girls I was nannying for. In addition to caring for the children, I was responsible for driving them to and from pre-school, school, and any extracurricular activities. Since living in Connecticut I have had one babysitting job that was reoccurring weekly and some occasional babysitting jobs for friends.

I am the oldest of three siblings, and have babysat not only my own siblings, but also many of my cousins (including one who has autism). I have been trained in the P.A.C.E. program, which is an ABA intervention for children with autism, and I have worked with a little boy who was both deaf, and had autism. I have completed an internship in a school district for school psychology, and have worked in all levels of education. This current year, I have worked as a tutor in a resource room as I complete my Masters thesis. While there, I have worked with children with a variety of different disabilities including autism, seizure disorder, learning disabilities, ADHD, and behavior disorders.

I started my nanny career watching a 5-month-old boy, had the opportunity to work in the infant/toddler room, and recently worked for a family, watching their now 3.5-year-old daughter and 1.5-year-old son, for over a year. I was fortunate enough to care for a loving 2-month-old boy for this past year. I love working with children of all ages, but have more experience in infancy/toddler-hood. I am extremely passionate about aiding in the overall unique developmental growth of every child I work with! I enjoy reading, along with arts and crafts, and believe in creative imagination! I am currently getting my BA in Elementary Education via an online school, which allows my schedule to be very flexible. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I would love the opportunity to work with your family!
