Casandra  A. - Seeking Work in Saint Paul

14.00 / hour
10 yrs of experience

Hi everyone!

My name is Casandra. I am 23 years old, working part-time in telecommunications, searching for a nannying opportunity to fill some of my spare-time.

I have 10 years of experience as a nanny and au pair. I have worked for dozens of families long-term, as well as short-term. This previous summer, I lived with a family in Newcastle, New South Whales for two months. I worked 62-hour weeks taking care of a newborn, 2-year-old, and 5-year-old. This is something I thoroughly enjoyed. I've also worked for single-parent families who travel internationally for work & I was the children's primary source of care. I enjoy the chaos, but I am looking to find a less demanding position in Saint Paul. If the care is within my own home- I'm open to a full-time schedule.

Qualifications:
-Assisted Childcare Certification
-Over 200 assistant-teaching hours in pre-k and kindergarten classrooms
-CPR certified
-Education/Training in early-childhood developmental stages
-Speech Therapy-

I find that arts and crafts involving simple lessons are a great way to pass time. Imaginative play, dress-up, dancing, and being silly is important too. I am comfortable helping with homework, writing, speech skills, driving to and from lessons, daily outdoor activities, etc.

5 yrs of experience

Hello! My name is Emily and I have been working in the childcare industry for over 10 years. Currently, I am a nanny for three wonderful kiddos in Bloomington, MN. I have worked with them since 06/16. Previously, I was with a family that had four kids, when I started they were twins (8 weeks), boy (3) and boy (6). In addition, I have been a lead toddler and infant teacher at a daycare for numerous years. I have my CDA, to be licensed to teach infants through 36 months at a daycare setting and I have my bachelors in psychology. The reason that I am looking for a new position is because I recently got accepted into a graduate program at River Falls for school psychology and will be moving to the Hudson area this September to be closer to campus. Even though I am sad to leave my current nanny position, I am excited to see what the future holds for me! I am looking for a long-term position and am comfortable with multiples and caring for 4+ children. A little about myself, I grew up in a small town west of the Twin Cities. I am very close to my family. In my spare time, I love to go camping, fishing, shopping and trying out new restaurants. I am very reliable, outgoing and humorous!
