I have had the absolute pleasure of watching and supporting children grown for over 20 years. I started young, around the age of 10, helping anyone around me with babies. I was particularly attached to my cousin and spent most of my time with him. Changing diapers and teaching him etiquette and speech. From there I had many babysitting jobs and was frequently called by the same families. Towards the end of high school, I got my first nanny job with a little baby whose father was in the military. I watched him grow from 4 months old to 4 years old before they were relocated. He was my first baby and I was heartbroken when they had to leave. I continued babysitting all through college. I began substitute teaching shortly after I stopped nannying and did that for 6 years. K-12, special needs and the arts.

I've been caring for children since I was about 10 years old as a mothers helper. This later blossomed into babysitting and eventual nanny positions in high school and college. I have a Bachelors degree in communications but I began my college career pursuing early childhood education with a concentration in reading. I currently babysit a few children during the week along with my two children and I implement a multicultural play based curriculum. I practice attachment/RIE parenting techniques, baby wear, teach the children yoga and meditation (starting school for teacher certification in February) I was a substitute teacher for 6 years for K-12, special needs and the arts.
