Samantha S. - Seeking Work in Red Oak

8.57 / hour

I started babysitting at 10 years old, then became a nanny at 20. The first family I was a nanny for had two kids in elementary and a child in middle school. I worked for this family for two years. I ended up leaving that family because I was moving to a bigger city. Up in that city I was a nanny for a year for a family with one child in 5th grade, & a child in Middle school. I really enjoyed working with that family as well, and again ended up leaving because of some personal things that came up and had to move back to my home town. The family was going to end up eliminating my position anyway because the children were old enough to care for themselves. I ran a Summer Day Camp program at our local YMCA for 3 years, and had various age ranges of kids! It was seriously a blast! I now work as Paraprofessional at a school about 20 minutes away from my home. This is just work during the school year. I've been with this school for 2 years now and have worked with preschool all the way to 12th grade. I enjoy working with each age group and helping them in any way that I can.
