Cassidy P. - Seeking Work in Brainard

22.85 / hour

I have been babysitting since I was eleven years old. I am from a very small town in the center of Nebraska, so I have watched many of the children from my hometown. I spent every weekend babysitting for someone in town. I have cared for infants that were only a few weeks old up through ten and eleven year olds that simply needed supervision. During college, I continued my babysitting in Hastings. I had a two-year old girl six days a week and often overnight. I also had a family of five girls that I watch occasionally, only two of whom are school age. During the summer I watched the two year-old in the mornings and then had two eight year-olds in the afternoon. I have had a variety of experiences with all ages and types of children, which I believe makes me an effective nanny. I also have degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education, as well as an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. My first Masters degree is in Curriculum and Instruction and I'm currently working on a Masters in Behavioral Intervention. I have been a special education teacher for 4 years now.
