Jessica R. - Seeking Work in Poplar Grove

I am currently a part time, live in nanny for a family with a new born. Since they will only need me on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays, I am looking for other children to care for. For the last two summers I worked as a lead teacher at a child care center for about 20-30 school aged children. Also, I was previously the manager where I worked with children on a daily basis. I absolutely love children and am currently attending Northern Illinois University for my BS in Child Development with an emphasis in Infant Care. I plan to graduate in December after I finish my internship at the Northern Illinois University Child Development Lab. I have already completed about six weeks of training in the lab's infant/toddler/two room. Working with children and families is my passion and I hope I'll be an amazing match for you!
