During the last 21 years I worked as a nanny for children from birth through 16 years of age. During that time I gained my associates degree in early childhood development at Washtenaw community college. Currently I am working toward my bachelor’s degree in special education for visual impairment at Eastern Michigan University. Children have always been an inspiration for me and it has been my career focus to work with them. My goal as a nanny/childcare professional is to be a positive role model and mentor in a child’s life. After all, children hold the future in their hands. It is my duty to work with the parent in a partner relationship to help give their child/children the best care possible. This way I can help to meet all of their child’s basic needs. I have some very good qualities to offer your children. I am patient, understanding, caring and a lot of fun. I am also responsible, trustworthy and clean. I will help children to encourage appropriate behavior skills and manors, be active, make good choices, and learn. I will engage them in a variety of activities including: field trips to places such as the zoo, pool, park, bowling alley, museums and the library. They will have a schedule throughout the day that incorporates reading, playing games, dress up, art and cooking activities that are age appropriate. I can provide a loving atmosphere where your children are able to develop trust and everyday skills to help them throughout the rest of their lives. Therefore, I feel I will compliment any family.

I have been working with children in a preschool/daycare for the last 6 years, and have been a baby sitter and helping with a family members in-home daycare periodically for the 4 years previous to that. The ages that I have worked with in the past ranges from 6 weeks up to about 14 years old, primarily up to kindergarten age. Over the years I have moved around when it comes to the age groups that I work with, for a few months at a time I would work exclusively with 6 weeks to 18 months old then move to 18 months to 3 years old, then 3 years up, so I do have exclusive work experience with each age group. At "Joyland", where I worked, we were required to take and pass numerous training courses to further our education in early childhood development, to better understand the cognitive and physical development of infants and young children. During my time there I also learned how to create lessons with age corresponding curriculum, upon observing and assisting the supervisors along with enrichment activities, experiments and other fun and educational activities to help prepare for preschool/kindergarten (depending on the child's age).

I am a recent college graduate (12/13), licensed to teach in Ohio PreK-3 and Michigan K-8, and have recently moved to Michigan (9/14) because my husband accepted a position working with U of M's women's basketball program. Throughout the school year I have been a substitute teacher but have had really pleasant experiences as a nanny! During my sophomore year of college, I was a nanny for a family with four year old twins for six months until their mom went to work part-time. I then became a substitute teacher at a child development center for two years. I worked with children as young as six weeks old to twelve year olds. I completed my student teaching and a long term substitute position in first grade and have taught second grade summer school. I am extremely passionate about working with children and love their energy and passion for learning!

I was the primary nanny and for an infant from the time she was 3 months old, to a year. I developed her diet and daily routine, tracked her growth and health, and helped her develop healthy emotional infant habits . I was also nanny for 2 young girls ages 2 and 4. I was with them from 6am till early evening; our primary daily ambitions revolved around learning! We learned new vocabulary, developed motor skills, and developed a healthy eagerness for exploration. We also practiced Spanish, and started training for kindergarten.
