I am a 44 year-old female with a degree in Human Resources Mgmnt. I have completed pre-req's for nursing school. I am now in a "holding pattern" until I decide which nursing program I wish to attend I have not decided if I will be specializing in neonatal or child/adolescent neurology or psych, but I will be specializing in children. I have a 21 year old daughter with special needs who lives in Georgia, and I was "nanny-like" for several years to the now 20 year old daughter of my friend/roommate whose wife died when his daughter was 3. I have 2 nephews ages 7 and 10 whom I adore (who also live in GA)!! I have coached basketball for boys and girls - most recently in 2007-8 11-12 yr old girls. I was a water skiing instructor/counselor at an all girls' camp in North Carolina. I have taught several Sunday School classes from the preteen age and younger. I also have some tutoring experience - I love math and English, but I am not too crazy about history. At this point I would like a live-in position that provides a car and health insurance.
