I have babysat and nannied for over 10 years, as well as working in a preschool and teaching dance to children. I stay with my families for years, and even after we move on, I stay in contact and help out often. My last nanny position was with a family with 2 boys. I moved away for school after a year, and now that I am back, I still watch them about twice a month.

As an adult, I worked for five years as a Title I tutor, (in a classroom-type setting,) and with at-risk youth in a group home. I was the houseparent for two to eight kids from five to 18 years of age.

I am a twin, and one of seven siblings. Three of them are younger, so I have helped babysit them since I was 12. I also started taking other babysitting jobs from then on. A few of the jobs were for several kids at a time, because people knew that we had a big family and trusted me to handle that many kids.
