Kim S. - Seeking Work in Porter

8.57 / hour

Caring for children, whether my own or those of others, has always been the most fulfilling part of my life. I have been employed as a nanny for two families, and babysat family members continually in my lifetime. As the oldest cousin on both sides of a LARGE family, I have always been the "go to" person for child care in my family. I suppose this is why I've grown to enjoyed interacting with children so much. While raising my 3 adult children, I was scout leader, t-ball coach, tutor, classroom volunteer, substitute teacher, part-time daycare teacher, and finally am now a highly involved grandmother.
