My name is Jamie and I am 19 years old. I am currently taking a semester off from college and am staying with my mom back home near the Cape Girardeau area and whist upon looking around for a job that actually challenges, as well as occupies me, I pleasantly came across this information for a nanny position and it sparked my interest. I have a natural knack with children that has really come in handy all the years I was left to babysit for family friends and neighbors. And during that time I have honestly developed a love for, not merely working with, but also for entertaining kids. Seeing children learn and laugh and explore honestly warms my heart and as cheesy as that sounds, it is just a very refreshing experience to see that much hope and potential in young children being exercised. And watching that kind of innocence and growth helps me to learn and grow as well and I would really love to seize an opportunity for expanding some overall flourishing!
