Full-time hours

I have worked with a couple of different families over the past fifteen plus years, some full-time and some part-time for each. I enjoy every aspect of working with children. I am the mother of 4 grown children now between the ages of 27 and 36, and had the pleasure of teaching our children at home for a total of 9 years (also worked as a substitute teacher in public schools for 3 years). I have three grandchildren ages 18 mo., 6.5yrs and 8 yrs.
