Dear families, I am an active senior that keeps fit. I am energetic, positive minded, patient, calm tempered, and love children. I have been caring for children of all ages since I was a teenager. I have raised four children and have fifteen grandchildren. I have extensive experience caring for all ages, infants to older special needs children. In addition, I have experience in social work in multiple disciplines focusing primarily on children. I am trained in the use of American Sign Language and I used to work as a teachers aide in special education. My last full time nanny job was working for a family whose daughter started kindergarten in August and since then I have been doing babysitting for a couple families in the area. I am available for a full time nanny job or if you only need someone for occasional babysitting. I'm very open to discussing options with you.

I have 3 younger siblings so I have always had that motherly instinct. I worked at the after school latchkey program in Metamora for 4 years watching anywhere between 50-90 kids a day. I also worked one-on-one with 2 boys that had a learning disability. I love kids and they hold a special place in my heart and I would love the opportunity to work with yours :)
