Within my 8 years of nanny and teaching career, I have had the pleasure of caring and interacting with over 2 hundred children, ranging from newborns, all the way up to preteens. I had the pleasure of working with one family for over 6 years. They had twin boys that were just under a year old when I was hired, along with a 3 and 5-year-old. Spent 4 years working for them part time (while working for other families part time as well) and was hired on to full time status as we welcomed the birth of their 5th child. Nothing brought me greater joy than watching all of them grow into smart, inspiring, and athletic individuals. For we were more like family instead of being just a payed caregiver. I would have stayed with the family longer had I not moved to FL to get married. My most recent experience was working as a Pre K teacher, along with being head over the Toddler department at xx. Reading and getting the creative mind working through many different craft projects is one of my favorite things to do with the kids. I truly believe that children are the light of the world, and its our job to get that light shining its brightest!
