Beginning at the age of 10, I have been entrusted with infants and toddlers as I helped at my church's youth services and daycare on a regular basis. I nannied for five children all with special needs as well as required medical attention for about three years during the summer months. Growing up with two twin brothers has also allotted me much experience caring for little ones of the same age and energy level. Through this, I have come to understand the importance of routines and maintaining a consistent schedule, especially when it comes to napping and feeding. I have several references I am happy to provide that testify to my trustworthiness, reliability, and passion for engaging and educating young ones. For two summers I cared for four little ones (5 year old, 3 year old, 2 year old, and a 2 week old infant). I was a live-in nanny for those summer months making meals, doing laundry, some light housework, taking the older ones to swim lessons every morning, driving them to tennis practice, adventuring with all of them to a few museums, as well as day trips to the park. I have flexible hours during the weekends and after 5pm on weekdays. I would be able to begin June 13, 2016-August 20, 2016. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or requests for references, etc.

I have taken care of children off and on in some capacity since I was 11. One of the boys from my first babysitting/nanny jobs graduated college recently (time flies!). I have also nannied (live-in) for over 2 years. I prefer an active lifestyle and to be outside as much as possible (weather permitting). Ideally, I hope to find a family to be a part of; do not want to be just an employee. With that said, I appreciate the importance of family time and would never intrude on it. Basically, I want to ensure there is mutual respect, open communication, and similiar values. I have an educational endorsement, in addition to my BA. I know some ASL and am trying to expand on my Spanish. I have experience working with therapists (OT, PT, SLP, and Vision) to help assist in therapy. Due to my education, I would be willing/able to work with the children on letter/number recognition, articulation, phonetics, reading, writing, homework, and general school preparedness.

I nannied two brothers; one was two and one was five. I was around 19, and had just graduated high school, when I started nannying for the family. I did so for two years. My responsibilities were picking up the older one from kindergarden around noon, cooking meals, keeping the boys active,reading books, light housekeeping. Other than that I probably began babysitting at age 15 and did so here and there ever since. My neighbors had new born twin girls and a four year old son when I was around 14 or 15 and I began babysitting when the twins were only a few months old.

I have been caring for children for over 15 years. I am currently a middle school teacher looking for a part time nanny position! I have cared for children from newborn to age 18. For many families, I have have been the only non-family member to care for their children. I am very comfortable working with children of all ages and since I handle a classroom everyday I feel I can handle multiple children!
