I am a graduate from a four-year college with a degree in Education. Over the past 17 years I have babysat on a regular basis for many families. I have experience counseling families on child care issues. I have a diverse background in childcare including being a preschool teacher, babysitter, student teaching in kindergarten and first grade, substitute teacher, swimming instructor/supervisor and camp director. Since graduating, I have taken more long term nanny jobs. I moved to Alabama and lived with a family with three children. During that year, I gained a lot of experience with special needs. I was trained to care for severe medical needs and personalized therapies.

I have always babysat my siblings and family friends' children. I was a soccer coach for ages 9-11 for one year, then a coach for ages 4-6 for two years. I have always helped my younger siblings (now ages 7 and 14) with their homework so I can help the children with their homework as well.

I have younger cousins and nephews that I grew up helping take care of. My mother is a pre-school teacher and I often babysit the students if the parents ever need a sitter. This summer I babysat a one year old and an 8 year old everyday from 8 until 5 while the parents worked. When I am home from school I mostly look for families that need a babysitter at any time. I enjoy working with kids of all ages and am responsible and respectful.

I am naturally born a nurtuer. I am inspired by how much life a child brings every day. I love to care and teach children along with learning from their inspirations. I worked at two daycares for total6 yrs.
I have received guardian of two small children in 2005 as their parents decided to give up parenting for few weeks to decide what they wanted to do with their lives. They decided children we're better off staying with me. Its now 2018 and I have gained full guardian till they are 18. I am continuing to raise them as my own. Its the best gift I could have received as I have yet had any children of my own. I will be more flexible to your schedules and life styles if it's not a issue to have my two little ones to enjoy becoming part of your family too. Id treat all the children the same. My son is 6 and daughter is now 3. Social interaction is a great thing for sibling not in school yet. It can also just be myself if you choose that you prefer your children to have me all to themselves. I am very energetic and have the love and patients any child needs. I also have had 15+ yrs with children and adults (minds of children) with disabilities.
