Nell H. - Seeking Work in Hayden Lake

22.85 / hour

I have worked with children my entire life. My aunt was a foster mom so i was ALWAYS babysitting. I then went on to work with a company dealing with children with disabilities. I worked out programs to help them with their mental and physical handicaps. After that i worked as a nanny for a 2 and 4 year old for a year, then they moved so i worked with a different family for another year. whew! I then went to school taking classes on early childhood development. I spent that summer volunteering as a girls softball coach, ages 8-11. I HAD SOOOO MUCH FUN! Then went on to work in a daycare. I then nannyed for an amazing family in Idaho and was with them for over two years, it was a single mom (we are still very close) and three children. One 2 year old and twin 8 year olds.. (When I started) but they grew up and I went to school for jewelry design and have been doing that since 2009, but always come back to wanting to nanny again. The joy of watching the children grow and being a part of that is nothing that I can find in a more professional work environment.
