Anne F. - Seeking Work in St Marys

17.14 / hour
Full-time hours

I love children of all ages, and enjoy playing with them and taking care of them. I want a family of my own someday and in the meantime would love to spend my time helping mothers in need and their children. I am very outdoorsy and love swimming and sports. I very much enjoy animals of any kind. I love teaching children and helping them learn and discover new things. I was an assistant teacher at a private girls' school in Post Falls, Idaho for four months, teaching first, second, and third grade arts and crafts, art, sewing, physical education and English/poetry. When I was sixteen I nannied for a family with four girls and one boy for the summer. The summer I graduated I nannied for a family with six boys. All through high school I babysat for a family with two little girls. I enjoyed all of those experiences and would like to dedicate myself to a family that I can love and be a part of.
