Hope H. - Seeking Work in St. Johns

I have worked with many families over the past years and i have grown to really love and enjoy kids! They have so much to give and to teach. Sometimes they want to cuddle up and read a book, and other times they want an out doors adventure. My first job as a babysitter was when i was twelve years old, and I have been babysitting ever since. I come from a big family of five kids. I have learned to enjoy and love being in a big family. The summer of 2009 i was a Nanny for a family that lived down the road from me. This was a wonderful experience, as i was able to become a part of the family. There were two girls, one 2 1/2 and the other 5. Even now they call me their big sister.
