I have been working with children since I was in high school. I did my senior community service at a day care for a semester. Upon going to Jr. College I did a majority of my community service at the local elementary school and day care. When transferred to a four year college I worked as an after school care teacher for two years. I still continue to center most of my community service around children.

Hey, I;m Tiana. I'm currently working to get into a nursing program but I've been a nanny for about 4 years. I am super high energy and I love to play, dance, read, and go to the park. I cook as well as clean. I have experience with children with special needs, so I am no stranger to medicine and challenging communication. I have all the patience in the world and try my best to really get to know the kids as individual people; their quirks, likes, and dislikes. I am CPR certified and a safe driver. I am prepared to keep your kids safe. I have experience with children of all ages: I don't mind rolling around on the floor with infants and I can play board games or do math homework with the best of them. I am available all summer long, weekdays and weekends. I have great references. I hope I have the chance to meet, help, and work for you and your children.
