In both high school and college, and even before, I was the neighborhood nanny/babysitter for many families in the city and suburbs near my home. From my late teens, and even into my thirties, I worked 17 years in many job titles. I started as a Summer then Year-Round Recreation Leader, Part-Time to Full-Time Instructor, and then Supervisor in the last two years of my career. I then moved out of the city and had children. During the time I worked there, I worked with infants, 2-3 yr. olds, Preschool Age, Pre-K, Kindergarten, School Age, Teens, Adults and Senior Citizens, teaching many classes for all of them, with 80% of classes being for the younger children. Lastly, I've worked as a substitute teacher in many city, parochial and public schools. One year, I was a P.E. and Health Teacher, and even did summer school a few years in different suburban school districts. I even have daycare experience, and worked as a Special Education Teacher Assistant at a Therapeutic Day School with children with severe needs. I have a Double Bachelors Degree in both Elementary Education K-9th Grade and Physical Education K-12th Grade, as well as endorsements in Language Arts, and a Paraprofessional Approval, so that education and experience can benefit any family that I work with.

I am 44years old and have been a nanny for 18 years. During this time I have cared for children ages newborn through 9 years old. But my first babysitting experience started over 25 years ago. Being the oldest in the family I babysat cousins and my younger sister. I have always been around children. They make me very happy. I am patient, fun and outgoing person. I enjoy playing outside winter or summer, field trips (zoo, museums, swimming pool, picnics at the park or sledding in the winter). I love making arts and crafts, scrapbooking. My work duties always included but were not limited to driving kids to school, activities, planning play dates, going to the library (story time), doing laundry and light housekeeping. I am very responsible, neat and organized person. You can always count on me, and never be worried about your kids safety. Last six years I worked for one family. I started when their first daughter was born and after couple of years another. They are wonderful kids and I will miss them very much.Currently I work for family in Glenview with 2 kids.
