South Grafton, MA Nannies

Jill M. - Seeking Work in South Grafton

22.85 / hour

I have been working with children and adolescents for over eight years. As a certified teacher many of my roles have been educational and I am always excited to bring those skills to the children I care for in the form of activities, crafts, playtime and conversation. I began my career working with pre-school and elementary students in integrated classrooms and Applied Behavior Analysis programs. Some of my favorite positions have been in treatment centers where students with emotional disabilities and behavioral challenges lived and went to school. These programs are high intensity and so I have learned to stay calm and neutral when emotions are heightened--whether that is an age-appropriate tantrum or something more. Babysitting was my first job as a teenager and is something I continue still. Most recently I cared for a one month old and, at times, her two year old brother.
