Hi, my name is Gabriella. I am applying because I would love to be your nanny! Let me tell you a little about myself! I am great with kids, and I love being around them. I have nieces and nephews from ages 14-2, with 3 on the way. I do not have any kids myself, but I will one day! I am happily engaged, and getting married in May 2016. I have been around many infants, and watched many newborns, and all ages, but I have never been a full time nanny. I'm currently working at Olathe Ford Lincoln, as a receptionist/billing clerk. I like my job, but I would LOVE to be around children, and get paid for something that comes so naturally to me, and something I enjoy doing. Life's too short to be at a job you're unhappy with. I can resign from my current job at anytime, as long as I have a 2 week notice. I love doing DIY crafts and educational activits. I am very athletic, so I love running arround. I am willing to travel to doctors appointments, errands, or anything momma and dad need done for the day. I can also bring kids to any practices, tutoring, or anywhere they need to be. I love going to the zoo and the aquarium, so maybe one day we can go there. I love being outside, so I would be A-OK with taking them on walks, looking at nature, or just getting some plain ol' fresh air. Also, since summer is right around the corner, I love swimming, and it's a great time for kids to play. I am hoping you'll give me the chance to be apart of your family, and care for your child. Thanks so much, Sincerely Gabby.

I have always been around and loved kids. My brother was born when I was 8years old.. I helped my parents take care of him and still treat him like my kid sometimes even though he is 19years old. I lived next door to my grandmother for 5 years and she was a foster parent. I often babysat kids of all ages for her. I worked as an assitant teacher in the 2 1/2-3 year old room and also with the 4 and 5 year olds. Later I worked at a daycare as the afternoon lead teacher for the Kindergarten class. I helped my friend with the birth of her twins that are now turning 5 in addition to helping with her oldest, 10 and youngest 1. There are several other families that I sit for occasionally with children varying from infant to 12 years old and I have references for all of them.
