Hello my name is Michelle D. I have been working in the childcare field for about 7 years. I am currently a lead toddler teacher. I have also worked with a variety of age groups including infants, preschoolers and school age. I currently have my associate's degree in ECE and I and currently pursuing my bachelor's degree. I am very passionate about working with children. I think that it is amazing how children can grow into such unique individuals. I am currently looking for a nanny position because I think that it will allow me to give a child a more intimate learning experience while helping them grow at their own personal ability. By me having a sufficient amount of classroom experience I can apply that to my position as a nanny as well.
