Hi! My name is Katherine, but you can call me Kate! I have extensive experience with children, beginning as a camp counselor, then teaching musical theatre, to finally becoming a full time nanny. I love interacting with children of all ages and creating activities that will engage their developing minds. I have experience working with children who have handicaps and special needs, and I am trained in ABA therapy techniques, though not formally (yet). I have worked mostly as a full time nanny, working from 7:00 am- 5:00 pm, making healthy meals and snacks, going on trips to the library, park, museums, etc., tackling bath time and nap time, and taking the kiddos to extracuricular activities. I love children of all ages and am excellent at following specific instructions provided by parents. I communicate very efficiently with my employers, and I take constructive criticism very well, always looking for ways to improve my performance. I hope I can be a great fit for your family and help you accomplish your household goals!
