I started helping my mom watch kids when I was around ten. We had a daycare in our home so from a very young age I learned how to take care of kids of all ages. In my home I watched my four younger siblings (ranging from ages two to ten). Along with watching my siblings, over the summers I also watched two boys (ages seven and nine, when I first started to babysit them) full time, where I watched them grow up until they no longer needed to have a babysitter at the home while their parents weren’t. I have two families who have used me as an occasional babysitter for the past two years in the Grand Ledge area, where I live. Recently I have been working through xx in the xx as a substitute teacher. I have now worked in elementary, middle school and high school levels. Through this opportunity of varying ages I am very open to providing childcare to all ages. My primary focus is substituting in the elementary level. I have been given a lot of positive feedback about my classroom management. My goal is to remind children what they’re supposed to be doing in a positive manner where they also have a fun time. I feel that kids get the most out of what they are doing when they enjoy it. What I have learned through my many years of working with children will make me an excellent nanny for your family.

I'm currently a senior at Michigan State University studying Elementary Education, and I will be graduating in May 2016. I have over 9 years of experience as a babysitter and nanny, and I have over 5 years of experience working in elementary schools as an aide. I have been a babysitter and nanny for children ranging in ages from newborn to 12 years old. I love being able to help make a family's life easier by caring for their children. I love providing fun experiences for the children in my care. I have been a nanny for a few families for many years, and there's nothing better than being able to watch the children I care for grow from tiny babies to active and exciting schoolchildren! I currently work in a school as an intern, and I have worked with children in grades Pre-K through 8th grade. Each age has different qualities, and I love learning about, and from, the children I work with!

I decided I wanted to get into teaching/working with children my first year of high school, and I attended the Career Center for Early Childhood Education. Since then I have had many experiences in and out of classrooms in the field. I have been a nanny for two families with three children that have both lasted around a year and worked as an assistant preschool teacher for about a year and a half. My major in college has since changed to Communications but I still have a great love of working with children and I couldn't imagine a better job as I work my way through school!
