I was a Nanny for 4 years in Massachusetts. I did many things for the family I worked for, laundry, cleaning up after the child and myself, organizing her things, play dates, parties, doctor/dentist/hair appointments, pick up/drop off, errands to groceries/Fedx/ Ups/ post office/ dry cleaning, helping with the dog they had, watching the house while they where away for vactations, after school activities. During the time I was there I did take up violin and help the child with her tutoring sessions. We also went out and explored Boston too. I have also worked in daycares as well. I was a lead teacher for 2,3,4,5 year olds. I would help with writing, reading, abc's, numbers, shapes, colors, make snacks, do art projects that included glitter, glue, cutting, markers, playdoh, shaving cream, paint and much more. I have lesson plans for many different themes from Space, dinosaurs, frogs, fairy tales, pigs, apples, butterflies and more. I have babysat for many different people and was also a nanny in Georgia for half a year. When in MA I would ride bikes with the child and play outside doing chalk, hide and seek, tag, jump rope and more. I've been able to explore new places with the children I've taken care of zoos, parks, children's museums, aquariums, swimming pools ( also took child to swimming lessons).

I am a mother of 4 amazing boys. My boys range in ages 14-21. I absolutely love the poem “Children Learn What They Live” by Dorothy Law Nolte. That poem keeps raising a child to a simple standard. I believe in coming down to their level and loving them at all cost. They deserve our time and respect so that one day they can return it back to others.
