Hi there! People always describe me as bubbly & animated. I am professional, energetic, cheerful, funny, and positive. I have been caring for children since I was a child myself. First, I was caring for the children of my family and neighbors. At age 14, however, I started to care for children at a more professional level. I took Early Childhood Education classes in high school where we cared for children ages 3-4. I also have a bachelor's in Early Childhood Education. Additionally, I have worked at centers w/ children ages 4 months-12 years old. I also worked for College Nannies and Tutors where I provided back-up care. I prepared simple meals for the children, provided homework help, played games with them, and did some light housekeeping. I have a squeaky clean background check and driving record. I love taking trips and doing arts and crafts. Currently, I have a part-time nanny job and am looking for extra work. Contact me if you feel I would be a great fit for your family!

I cared for two Children ages 3 & 6. I would drop/pick them up from School. Then give them a snack, then we would do Homework.They barely stayed in front of the TV because I always had something different for them to do. On the weekends I would pick up something from different places like the Arts & Craft Store. We would make pillows, necklaces with the beads, build our own bears like the Build a Bear Store, bake etc. I like doing things that they love to do. Unfortunately I had to leave because I had to care for my grand child.
