I taught preschool for three years. I worked first with the 2.5-3.5 year old room as an assistant teacher then moved to the 3.5-pre K room as a lead teacher. I have experience with diapers/potty training, lesson planning, children with some behavioral issues, and twin care. I can manage larger groups of children all while keeping them engaged in learning and also having fun. In addition to my preschool experience I also was a live in caregiver for my grandpa. I was responsible for running the household while taking care of him so I'm comfortable with cooking simple healthy meals, cleaning, laundry and also pets. I've listed 0years of 'nanny experience' however I have over 5 years of experience, patience and love that I'd bring to your family.
