I began my nanny experience with a wonderful family that I've remained close with ever since. After graduating with a degree in elementary education, I was in the process of looking for a teaching position when I came across a position as a nanny. It was a true blessing. I had the pleasure of caring for two fantastic girls who kept me busy and laughing all day long. I was responsible for driving them to school and appointments, helping them complete school projects/assignments, looking after the family pets, miscellaneous household chores, and anything else needed by the family. The mother expressed how much their family enjoyed my presence in the home and praised my efficiency. The family had hired me strictly for after school care and the mother urged me to pursue my teaching career, which I have been doing for the past two years. I continued to care for the children much after I attained the teaching position as they attended the same school in which I taught! I am still contacted to house sit for the family periodically.

I have always loved children. I have been a babysitter since the age of 13 but have been caring for my sister who is 9 years younger than me since she was born. Over all 4 summers of high school I was a nanny for families during the week. The children I have cared for have ranged in age from a couple months old to 13 so my experience is broad. The most children I have cared for at once is 5 and I would love for you to consider me to be a part of your family this summer!

The three families I have nannied for, I had the same responsibilities. I play, read, bath, cook, feed, help with homework and occasionally take them to school. The current two families I nanny for will not need child care over the summer. The kids ages are 5,5,4,3, and 1 years old. I honestly love the children I care for so much. I love watching them grow and helping them learn new things.
