Welcome to my profile page! I am currently a paraeducator at an elementary school, looking for a PT or FT summer nannying position & occasional/regular babysitting/tutoring jobs in my home or yours. As a nanny, I strive to organize & plan engaging, educational days focused on spending time outdoors, going on field trips, reading, science experiments, art, & many more fun activities! I have broad experience with differentiating instruction for children as individuals, based on their interests, abilities, & learning goals. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education & have taught kindergarten & preschool, both Montessori & traditional. I've been a babysitter since age 11, FT nanny, & child care provider at daycare centers. I was involved in Big/Little Sister's mentoring, did individual & group tutoring, worked at before/after-school programs & was a children's party hostess. The parents I babysit for have known me for years & tell me they are confident leaving their children with me. They know they will have fun, while being kept safe. Taking care of & educating children has always come naturally to me & brings me joy every day! I am very flexible & willing to work with parents, using my knowledge, empathy & communication skills. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
