I started babysitting at the age of 16 and nannying at the age of 20. I worked with a family for 5 years caring for two kids during the summers. I was responsible for their safety and enjoyment at various outdoor activities during the summer. We spent our time at the park, pool, beach, libraries, malls, and at neighbors yards. I prepared their meal, thought them different sports and activities such as swimming and biking, spent time reading books, and engaging in educational games. We also created new games and always found a creative way to teach them educational material. Apart from caring for the kids, I was responsible for their laundry, the cleanliness of their bedroom,play areas, as well as the kitchen. I kept everything as clean and organized as possible, but made sure the kids were my first priority. After that long-term job I held a couple summer jobs, but my last job was caring for a 2 year old boy named Alec, who I still hold dear to my heart. I was in charge of the same activities as my previous job, but I also spent some extra over nights while mom worked and dad took a business trip. Over all I have plenty of reference that can attest to my ability to care and love children of any age.

I have been a nanny for two different families. My first family had a little girl that was the age of 2 and her Brother was 3. I was with them from 8am-6pm monday through friday. I did light house keeping after the children. I helped potty train both of them. We had a daily routine that usually involved going to the library, the park, arts and crafts and sometimes we would go on a little trip to the zoo or the indoor park. I was with this family for 2 years. The second family had two boy's ages 3 and 6. We pretty much did the same activities. The older one I drove to soccer, tee ball, camp, school and we went bowling a few times. Also for both families I did prepare meals for the children and I always emphasize on using manners.

I love being a nanny. I love the way the children in the past looked up to me and truly appreciated my presence. They visit me often and still have a wonderful relationship with all the families I've been employed by. I must say my past childcare experience has been truly wonderful and I've got some great memories to cherish forever.

In my junior and senior years in high school, I worked with children ages from 2 years old to 5 years old in my high school's preschool program. In the 2012-2013 school year, I was an assistant teacher in a first grade classroom in the Roxbury, New Jersey, school district; that year I also was a volunteer substitute teacher for a local CCD program, and mentored a seventh grade girl. For the past two summers, I was a camp counselor in the preschool division with children ages from 2-4 years old. This past year and a half, as a part of the education program at my university, I was able to mentor two kindergarten boys, observe a fourth grade classroom, and teach a "junior achievement" course to a second grade class. I continually work in the local elementary schools gaining field experience for my teaching degree.
