Tera R. - Seeking Work in Byron

22.85 / hour

I am a 41-year-old female with over 20 years of part-time and full-time Nanny and baby-sitting experience. I am married and we have two beautiful daughters, ages 15 years and 11 years. We also have an 8 year-old son. I would love to continue as a nanny in infant care. This is where I have a majority of my experience, outside of caring for my own children. Positions have included infants as young as two months old and parents transitioning back to work after the birth of their child through age 3. However, I also have plenty of experience with preschool and elementary age children. I love being a mom, and I would love to be able to continue "working" in the nanny profession by offering responsible, loving care for your family. I take pride in providing a fun, loving, safe environment for the children to grow and learn while offering a worry-free time for the parents. I am available to begin now. I am willing to do temporary care as well. I can be very flexible. I am CPR and 1st aide certified and have safe, reliable transportation. I have excellent references that would be available to you. I look forward to hearing from you.
Sara F. - Seeking Work in Byron

22.85 / hour

Hi, my name is Sarah and I am looking to start a nanny job sometime in May/June. I am currently student teaching in a 1st grade classroom and will be graduating from Winona State University with a degree in elementary education and early childhood education in May. I have been working with all ages of children since I was 16 years old; this includes nannying multiple children, working at Project Kids, being a youth services librarian, and having over 200 hours of field experience within the classroom. Going to school to pursue a teaching degree has taught me many different qualities and has made me even more passionate when it comes to working with children. Not only do I have a variety of experience, but I am responsible and organized, with an energetic personality!
