Sandra T. - Seeking Work in Ann Arbor

11.42 / hour

I have worked as a nanny for many families over my past 21 years. Most of the positions were ended due to the fact that the family was no longer in need of nanny care. I have taken care of infants through ten and have been friends with kids older than 10. I have never been at a career longer than being a nanny because it has provided me with flexibility and challenge. Each child is different and comes with a constantly changing development and circumstances. I don't think that I know everything about children but I will try to find out about your children down to the smallest details. I am always willing to learn and grow as a professional and in my personal life.
