I was a nanny for a family with one boy and three cats for a little over a year. I helped with cleaning, cooking, running errands, and grooming the kitties (which I loved). Not only that, but I am 1 of 8, all but two being younger. I have been babysitting my younger siblings since I was 12. One of my younger brothers is special needs, and I have had years of experience with his various speech and physical therapies. I absolutely love all my siblings! And they have definitely inspired me and my love for kids! Also, I graduated early from high school and am currently a math major at Lansing Community College. I have experience tutoring both math and composition up to Calculus 2 and Senior Level Writing. I guess you could say homework time is where I shine! I love kids, pets, and arts and crafts, and have a knack for curing cranky days!
