I feel as though I have been caring for children all of my life. It is a passion of mine to be an integral part of a child's life and to make a difference. I am happiest when I am around children and enjoy teaching kids and laughing with them. This is the reason I chose to pursue a career in teaching. I graduated from Monmouth University with a degree in education and have 1 year experience as a Teacher. Additionally, I have over 7 years of experience as a nanny/babysitter, in professional and domestic settings. I am very patient with children and care for them as much as I would appreciate others to care for mine if and when I have them. In past experiences I have assumed not only the role of a care taker but also of a housekeeper/cook (which are also other things that I love to do). I have also assisted with homework, laundry, and driven children to and from playdates, parks, and doctor visits if necessary.

I have much childcare experience from taking care of my nieces and nephews when they were younger for about 5 years and I was responsible for them 24 hours a day. I took care of two children (7 and 8 years old) in the mornings which includes transportation to their school. Also, I took Care of Mina she was three years old. Lately I took care for Avery during the last year and half. This great experience stayed in my mind and since then I've always wanted to become involved with helping children with their development and learning, and to fostering their self-awareness, self-worth and physical well-being. It is the best investment we can make for them.
