For the last three years I have taught Kindergarten in Detroit through Teach for America. It has been challenging and rewarding however I am looking to transition my classroom experience into something else. I love working with children and I have previously been a live-in nanny for 2 children (age 4 and 6). I am first aid and CPR certified. I can not only provide excellent child care but also help your child academically given my education background. As a teacher, I have developed excellent organizational and problem solving skills.

I have taught over 70 kids how to read, do math, and observe like scientists.

I first started off babysitting my niece when i was 15. I would get her up in the morning, help her get ready for school, then drop her off at school and pick her up. When she got out I would help her with her homework, cook dinner, and make sure she took a bath and brushed he teeth at night. I did that for 2 1/2 years until she moved back home with her mother (NOT PAID) I also was a nanny for my sister because she use to work to much. She is a foster mother, so she had kids with varying ages. She had 1 set of twins who were mentally challenaged, and one 2 year old girl. I would take care of them from 9a-9p drive them to any appointments the twins needed to attend, cooked, housekeeping, and tend to all of their needs.
