I treat my job as not just a nanny job, but every moment is a teachable moment in a variety of different ways. Some things I enjoy doing with the kids; I love taking them on nature walks. I utilize kid-appropriate, educational and creativity videos for lessons. I encourage reading, coloring, drawing and games. I am a strong advocate for imaginative play and exploring outdoors. I go into the next day with something new for them to learn. I listen to what they like and then make fun lessons from that.

I've worked with children practically my whole life. My little brother and I are 12 years apart, so I grew up with a baby in the house. The most children I've watched at one time were 6. All under the age of 10. I've also taken the American Red Cross Babysitting course too. I've been babysitting for 9 years. I know how to cook, clean, do laundry, and swim too. I have my own car and a clean driving record. I've also taken driving school before. I'm currently a nanny right now for 3 children. M-F I go to their house at 6:30AM wake them up, feed them breakfast, help them get ready for school, pack their bags, and drive them to school. On Friday I pick them up from school and watch them until their Mom gets home. Also every Tuesday and Wednesday I babysit for a 3 year old from 4PM-11PM. I play with her, cook her dinner, and put her to bed. I also care for newborn twin boys right now as well.
