Majority of my babysitting experience has been within my own family, with an occasional job for family friends, or families within the community. Outside of babysitting, but still childcare related, I have worked in a kindergarten classroom for the past three years as a teacher's aide. I am responsible for watching anywhere from 18 to 23 4-6 year old's. My primary responsibilities have been supervising and assisting during snack, lunch, recess, math, and writing times. As for babysitting jobs I have held, most recently, I babysat for a family of two young girls whom I have had both in the classroom I work for; their ages 5 and 7. Prior to that, I have babysat for my two cousins ages 2.5y/o and 7 mos. Otherwise, I have been responsible for watching my younger siblings for the past 7 or so years.

I started with my first family when I was 20 years old. I worked with them for 7 years. The two girls were 6 weeks old and 4 when I started. They started school full time so I found a new position with a family in West Hartford for their two boys, one of which has type 1 diabetes sadly after 2 wonderful years and an great learning experience they had to move. The most recent family was in Farmington and I was with them for 2 and a half years, a beautiful 4 year old girl when I started and a new baby boy a few months later. Unfortunately I had accident and needed to take some time off but I am now ready and eager to continue to do what I love so very much. I love working with children, it's been such an blessing and incredibly rewarding knowing I have an impact on their lives as they do with mine.

**We have loved having Heather as our nanny! Sadly we are moving and will be losing Heather who is currently the nanny to our 2 boys one with special needs and diabetes. She is extremely capable, reliable and trustworthy. She is a part of our family and we have loved partnering with her in raising our children. She is very mature and the kids love her! She will be missed tremendously when we move. You will be lucky to have her if she ends up with your family!
