Full-time hours

I have been babysitting children ages infant to 13 for 6 years and I knew the second I started babysitting that I wanted to pursue a career involving children and that is why I received my degree from Hastings College in elementary education and special education. Being a teacher is so rewarding but when I was babysitting I felt that it offered so much more, I was able to have fun while teaching the kids on top of that I was able to care for the children by cooking, taking them on adventures and cleaning. Those are three aspects that I could not find by being a teacher. By nannying I am able to spend time with children and do the things I love.

I worked for a family in Colorado. The kids did a 180 turn around in the short time I was there. The 5 yr old girl went from no reading or writing skills to knowing her alphabet to writing her name and reading short sentences. The 3 yr old boy was potty trained and learned to do puzzles. The job only lasted a month due to martial issues b/tw the parents; I'll never forget those kids though.

I have worked with children since I was 14. I used to babysit two children when I was 14 up until they moved away. In high school I worked at the YMCA in the child watch center and helped with the after school program. When I went to college I found a job at a daycare in Doniphan and worked there for 2 years. I am now graduated from college with a Early Childhood Development degree and am working at a daycare.

I watched 10 of my 16 cousins and babysat since I was 10 years olds. I was a nanny for two children ages 9 and 6 for one year. They lived in Southern California, I drove them to and from school and I helped in the class room for both children. I fixed them dinner Monday thru Friday and some weekends. I also drove them to their after school activities and helped with home work.
