Sodus, NY Nannies

Rebecca C. - Seeking Work in Sodus

11.42 / hour

I graduated from Cazenovia College in 2003 with a BS degree in Early Childhood Education and Program Administration. Upon completing my education I entered into the workforce at a local childcare center where I worked for four years. Going from a PreSchool teacher all the way to Assistant Director. I did have a job change in 2007 and in 2008 became a nanny to a wonderful family. They relocated to Vermont. The job was wonderful because I was able to see their infant son grow up and there five year old get ready to enter kindergarten. I then began work at a local HeadStart and have been there for six years.
