Audrey M. - Seeking Work in Farmington

10.40 / hour
Full-time hours

I started working for a family in March 2003, with 2 little girls ages 4yrs and 5mos. They became like my own daughters, and even referred to me to strangers as their "day mama". I took care of their meals, baths and laundry, and of course, them. We went everywhere together and I absolutely loved that job!! Unfortunately, children tend to grow up and although they kept me through the younger ones first year of all day school because nobody was ready to say goodbye, eventually it just wasn't the right fit for me any longer financially. I needed full time work. While I continued to be their before and after school care for another year, I went on to another family in the same neighborhood with 3 young children (and had their 4th while I worked for them). Again, once 3 out of the 4 were in school all day, the needs changed, as this was a stay at home mom. I then got a job as a kindergarten teacher at a small Christian school at my church and taught there from 2010-2014.
