I was a nanny for years for a high profile family. I also had a few live in positions in NYC. I now reside in Huntington NY and have raised my own daughter here. I am warm and loving and genuinely love children and their wonder. I would have to say the best time of my life was when my child was young and you get all those hugs and kisses and the amazement of watching them grow into productive and compassionate people. I feel that the love of learning also begins at home and the more you foster their independence their self esteem soars.

I am the eldest of 12 grandchildren, and in my immediate family I am the Eldest and only girl of three. I grew up in a large family and always had children around. i started babysitting and being responsible for many children at a time from a young age with my immediate and extended family. Into middle school I started babysitting outside the home for family friends and neighbors. I have always been great with children, I am creative, energetic, patient, and I love just learning from being around children. During high school in the summers I worked for Dix Hills Pool, which was the town pool, and I taught swimming lessons and water safety and first aid to 3 groups a day of campers and private lessons. I used to be CPR and first aid certified, i still know how to do everything, however if necessary i am willing to get recertified. In these groups where i taught, i worked with ages ranging from 3-12 year olds and I taught there for about 4 years. At my high school, I got involved with the social work department and helped in their office, and also took 2 years of child developement classes in which we were separated into groups and the students helped run a nursery school // preschool program for our school district twice a week. I was always heavily involved in my groups, and enjoyed being able to come up with various activities and getting to learn the different personalities of children of all different backgrounds and cultures. I enrolled in school for two years and my intended major was Social Work. I have yet to finish my degree due to financial difficulties within my family, but I intend to take classes at some point to finish and obtain a degree in childcare.
