Emina A. - Seeking Work in Stamford

Full-time hours

Hi, my name is Emina Atic and I’m 28 years old. I grew up in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina (part of former Yugoslavia). Bosnia is the heart shaped land that lies in the heart of southeast Europe. My family count four members, my mom, dad and my one year younger sister. Our parents taught us the value of education and strong moral values from a very young ages. 2002/2003 I finished my high school. After a high school I finished 2 years on University and became a teacher. Since I got my degree as a teacher I worked in school with 2nd and 3rd grade. Later on, I extended 2 more years on University, because my goal was to improve myself more and get professor degree. 2008 I graduated on University of Tuzla and got my Professor degree for middle school education. During my studies I often babysat in my neighborhood. All my life I wanted to travel. Well, I took opportunity and came to America in February 2009, as an Au pair. I worked for an amazing family in Stamford, CT. I took care of 2 amazing kids, girl 2,5 years old, and boy was 5 years old. I stayed for a 2 years in this family and they made me feel like part of it; God knows how much I love them! Monday – Friday Morning: I would get up and prepare breakfast for kids (eggs, cereal, pancakes, fruit with cheese next to it, or something else, depends what their parents want me to prepare for them), help them with getting ready for school, prepare their lunch boxes, and drive them to day care and preschool I was taking some classes while they were in school. Next, I would return home and do the laundry and set up their beds, sometimes I would have them help me with organizing the toys. Afternoon: I would pick them up from daycare, preschool give them healthy snacks, and bring them home, or we would stay for a little bit at the JCC playground, or kid zone so they would be able to play for a little bit before we get home. We were always doing something interesting, playing games together, doing kids projects, having play dates with other kids, etc. Evening: I would prepare dinner for kids. Sit with them while they r eating, and help them if they need one. Later on I would give them a bath, they would brush their teeth and put them in bed, sometimes their parents were doing that. Also, I was bringing them to their activities during the week, such as piano lessons, karate, ballet, swimming , etc. As I said, I worked for this family 2 years, than my Au Pair program end it up, and I went to Bosnia to change my visa to student visa… The family that I worked for 2 years are my sponsors for my school Now, I'm currently a student at NCC - Norwalk Community College where I'm majoring in Business Administration and Management. During my college (NCC) I worked full time job for another family, since my previous family doesn’t need nanny or au pair anymore. They just want to spend more time with their children. We r still in touch, celebrating holidays together, having dinner together, celebrating birthdays and doing many other things together ; They r my American family Anyway, as I mentioned I worked full time job, but this time I was not just a nanny, beside that I was taking care of dogs, whole house, chickens. I worked for single mom and took care of her 9 years old girl. I’d been here one year. Girl was going to 3rd grade. My days looked like this: Monday-Saturday: I would have her get ready for school, give her breakfast and bring her to bus stop. Next, I would feed the dogs (4 dogs), walked them for a few hours, do the cleaning in the house, feed up chickens, pick up the girl from the school, give her healthy snacks, and bring her to White Plains on different classes, or to karate, or chess class at the JCC, etc., depends of the day. Also, I would go to my school in morning when I have classes. After activities we would come home, she would start with her homework, I would help her if she needs me, than we would have dinner, later on she would shower, I would give doggies dinner, feed up chickens again, and have girl to do some reading, or flash cards such as multiplication or Hebrew flashcards before going to bed. Well, what can I say about me I've always enjoyed children, being part of their lives & having opportunity to teach. My pleasures are reading them books & encouraging them to read. Love to do crafts with them and other stuff, just want them to be happy !!! :)

I was born into a family of 5 kids; I fall fourth in the mix. I have a little sister whom I helped raise growing up, which taught me the basics of caring for children. Outside my family,I have about 7 years of experience. I babysat for 3 families regularly. I babysat for 2 families I went to church with. One family had 6 kids (ages 0-9) and another had 4 kids (ages 0-8). I taught piano lessons to a 7 old girl that I babysat. Her mom passed my number along to a friend who then asked me to teach lessons to her 2 girls. After being their piano teacher, they hired me to babysit one night a week for their 3 kids (ages 4-7). My older sister resides in Stamford, CT and was a nanny before her daughter was born. During one of my visits to see her she let me nanny the 4 kids for a day. Their ages ranged from 5-11. It was a fun learning experience! Thinking of past babysitting experiences, I have done a lot around the houses to pick up. I often cooked lunch and dinner for the kids I babysat and got into the habit of cleaning up the mess afterwards and doing the dishes. Once I put the kids down to bed, I would usually pick up the house and put away anything the kids forgot to. I like to keep things tidy and clean.

I am a 22-year-old outgoing, loving and caring, compassionate young lady. I have 4 years experience as a teacher's assistant at a daycare and 3 1/2 years as a full time live-in nanny. I observe and monitor children's play activities. During my time as a teacher's assistant. I kept all records on individual children, including daily observations and information about activities, meals served, and medications administered. I instructed children in health and personal habits such as eating, resting, and toilet habits. During my years as a nanny I handled all light household duties such as laundry, loading and unloading dishwasher, dusting, vacuuming, etc. I also handled all children play dates, activities and field trips, doctor visits you name it! I've told I'm the "Marry Poppins Nanny", there's nothing I can't do. I hope this brief summary of me and some of the many things I do interests you, hope to hear from you soon.

I've been working with children for over 6 years, back home as well as here in the United States. Right now I am taking care of two girls 6 and 8 years old. We spend a lot of time together, and do alot of things together, that they see me as their bigger sister. I am going to describe one of our days. In the mornings I wake them up, help them to get ready for school, give them breakfast, pack their lunches, do their hair, and drive them to school. In the afternoons I pick them up from school, help them with homework, drive them to their activities, cooking dinner, and a few times during the week give them a bath and put them in the bed. When we have free time we like to play indoor such as reading stories, playing with dolls, singing, dancing, do arts and crafts, play board games etc. Outdoor we usually ride bikes, play hide and seek, play in a sand box, going to the playground, going swimming etc. My experience with children so far was great and I've enjoyed every minut of it. I wish to have a lot of great and fun experiences with little ones. I really hope we'll be a great match.

Being the oldest of 4 children I've had the "motherly" trait for as long as I can remember. When I reached the age of 10 years old I began to professionally babysit many other children outside of my family for small fees, and I soon realized I really enjoyed doing so. I then received a job as the Assistant Director at the Center. Taught children from the ages of 5-13 many things such as instruments, and dance moves. Many of the parents of the children began to hire me to watch their children outside of the community center.
