Full-time hours

Hello family! I started babysitting very young. As a teenager I watched my baby cousin. In my 20`s I started to babysit for my neighbors and relatives. Last year, I started doing this full time professionally as a live in nanny for four kids ranging from the ages 8-13 in. Currently I watch 9-year-old twins and will be leaving this position in January of 2017. In all of the aforementioned situations I was helping the kids with homework, playing, preparing meals, driving, shopping, laundry, and also being helpful according to the family needs. I've completed a child development course and I also have a teaching degree. I am able to provide references. I'm looking forward to hear from you! Thanks, Jussara.
