Katie B. - Seeking Work in Durham

17.14 / hour

I have cared for many children of all ages. I have a creative mind and enjoy lots of interaction with children. I minored in music in college so I have given music lessons to many of the children I've cared for. I provide a very loving, positive, and up-lifting environment for children. I believe in fun, health, and balance in their young lives and do my part to see that they get the very best in those areas. I grew up in a family of 10, so I'm familiar and good with all types of personalities and characteristics. I also have my teaching degree and have helped with school work, and even homeschooling. I am very organized and have helped with family budgets and managing the house. I am good with time and make sure I make good use of it. I also have experience with special needs children, who were a delight and I counted it as a privilege to have worked with them.

I've had the opportunity to work with infants during my time as an Au Pair in America and babysitting a lot of family members or neighbors and friends children. When I grew older many parents noticed my affection for kids and my ability to take care of and work with them. Whenever a nanny was needed I was asked to do the job. I taught them to find their feet, to swim, ride a bike and lots of helpful stuff like count and write letters. I also helped taking care of my niece (age 4) and nephew (age 1). I love children so much my aunt asked me to be the godmother of my cousin (age 6). Also, I used to do gymnastic dancing for 13 years in a club where I supported my trainer, exercising with younger groups of up to 16 girls between the age 4 and 13.

As a high school student I held a part time job with a local after-school program and continued work with them through the summer. I worked with all ages and sometimes kept watch over 15 or more children. Duties included, making sure their homework was finished, they enjoyed a good, healthy snack, and getting outside or in the gym for some physical activity. This job also required me to have First Aid/CPR Training. I also babysat on the side, as well as when I attended college. I've lived in Nashville for almost 4 years and am very comfortable with most of the suburbs as well.
