I began babysitting as a teenager. After graduating college and having a successful career, I became a mom of my own two boys - now ages 11 and 13. As they grew up, I worked at their daycare center for preschoolers, tutored after-school children in groups of 10-15 (elementary education), and provided private, one-one-one tutoring for teens and college students. As a new mom, I initially continued my career and hired nannies for my own children - so I can empathize with the changing demands of your job, your concerns about finding a nanny who you trust, and your angst about leaving your children with a caregiver while you are away from home. Rest assured that your children will be provided the best possible care while they are with me. I am also more than happy to run errands, prepare meals, and clean/do laundry. I am extremely patient, very active, fun-loving - and most importantly, responsible. The safety of your children is my top priority!
