I lived in Florida from 2000 to 2003. I had 3 jobs that included light housekeeping and nanny plus others that it was only housekeeping. I liked my jobs because i love kids and I enjoy beeing around kids, remind my childhood a lot and it's very fun to work with kids. I am very patient with kids even when they have a temper. I did everythings while i was a nanny, drove kids to school, e then picked up kids, little shopping, cooked for kids, bathe them, played with them, had a lots of fun working with them. Kids are very special, fun, loving, sincere... They have a special place in my heart. I would like in a family to be honest, sincere, friendly to me and treat me like a family member too. Sometimes the parents treats the nanny very unfair, don't pay for driving the kids or don't pay for overtime and explore the nanny a lot, making her works as a slave, with no respect at all and you don't feel comfortable in the house. Have an open relationship like a family.

I am currently a live in nanny in Brainerd MN for a single mother of a 7 month old boy. By September 2017, I will have been a live in nanny for one year. Besides that, I also did a lot of babysitting. I come from a big family, which means I have lots of little cousins. I watched a variety of ages ranging from newborns to preteens. 2016 summer I even watched one year old twins and a three year old. I love taking care of kids and incorporating teachable lessons in fun activities and experiments. Being an active 4-H member, I volunteered to teach many classes for elementary ages students and younger. I taught wildlife themed classes, art, and science classes. I love making learning fun, and making children want to explore and learn more!
