I have many years of experience working with children that range from babysitting, nanny and teacher. When working with children, I can plan daily activities, complete light housework and cooking. I enjoy being outside and using my creative side to engage children throughout the day. In my most recent position I was a Pre-k teacher. I created lesson plans, and helped differentiate for all ability levels. I strive to make each day a positive experience with the children I care for.
