Hi there! My name is Bethany; I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself. My background is in Montessori education as I worked in an authentic private Montessori school while completing my undergraduate degree. I have multiple years of experience prior to this as well from weekend nannying to live in experience on a short term basis. I currently work in Hartford Hospital in their infection control department. As this is my first career out of school I am wishing to leave the corporate sector to dive into a nannying career. Since my background has always involved children I want to focus my career there by starting as a full time nanny. Once I save up enough money I hope to get my masters degree in Montessori Education from the North East Training school. This looks like my five year goal plan. I’d love to discuss any and all of my credentials with you whether that’s my CPR certification or my degree. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
