Samantha K. - Seeking Work in Prospect Heights

11.42 / hour

I am 20 years old and I am currently attending college to major in Elementary Education. I have been a babysitter for the past seven years and started nannying a year ago for a summer job. I have experience with children from newborns to 9-year-olds. I have been told that the children have enjoyed having me as their nanny because I would constantly be doing something with them. I personally believe that I am creative and like to do a lot with the kids that I watch. Working with kids has always been something I enjoyed, and that is why I want to be an elementary teacher. I consider myself responsible, easygoing, but I also know right from wrong and make sure kids understand the rules. It's always important to have fun with them and introduce them to new activities.
