Full-time hours

Hi my name is Sherri. I am nurturing, caring and my love has always been with children. Many years ago I taught three children phonics, love for water (swimming) and gave them a routine with lots of fun and adventure. We read, played outside, did crafts and laughed a lot. They all have graduated college and I visit them at their parents house now and then when they are there. Recently I was mothers helper for triplets. How wonderful that was!I graduated in 2004 being certified in CNA/BLS. In May of 2013 I certified in Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED through the American Heart Association. I look forward to a part time position of two to three days a week with a loving, happy family that I could be a part of shaping his or her world. :)
