Clara P. - Seeking Work in Burnt Hills

10.40 / hour

I have been a nanny/housekeeper to a family in Boston, MA with a fourteen year old high school freshman. She had several permanent engagements and seasonal athletic schedules to keep up with. As an adopted, single child, she was in need of constant supervision and guidance as she entered the incredibly rough years of high school. I was grateful for the opportunity to be guide and mentor to her for the year I worked with her family. I baby sat as a younger girl, as well as being the youngest of six children, I have four nieces and a nephew under the age of 12 who I have periodically looked after. I was the secondary caretaker for my nephew until he was 3 years old.
