Michele H. - Seeking Work in Syracuse

14.28 / hour

My name is Michele. I am a substitute teacher in the Jamesville-Dewitt and Fayetteville-Manlius school districts in the elementary and middle schools. Before teaching I was a nanny in the Fayetteville/Manlius area for over 10 years for children ages 4 months to 12 years old. I also have experience with multiples. I love playing games, reading stories, dancing/singing, going to the museum/library, playing outside and watching the children's excitement and awe when they discover nature and learn new things. I feel very honored and happy to be part of their first experiences! Besides teaching ABC's and 123's, I believe in teaching manners, self respect/respect of others and kindness to animals and others. I do not believe in spanking. Time-out is the only punishment I believe in. I love to laugh and see and hear children's laughter! I am currently volunteering at Arise at the Farm as a side walker for the horse therapy program. I have also volunteered at Golisano Children's Hospital working in the Pediatrics ICU and ER departments. I have many references and my Background check/Security clearance letters form JD and FM school districts. I will bring all my information with me to interviews. If we are a good fit for each other, we could talk about a SUMMER Nanny position if you will be needing one next summer! :) Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response. Michele
Nichole G. - Seeking Work in Syracuse

At an early age I was always trying to take care of those around me and volunteering to help with the younger grades throughout my years in school. I took classes in high school to introduce me to the world of teaching. In one of those classes I was an intern for a preschool class. I continued with my love of teaching and being with kids at the State University of New York at Albany where I earned a Bachelor degree in History with a minor in education. Many of the education courses I took were in the area of special needs. During these times I worked as a camp counselor at a residential sleep away camp and had the privilege of being with children of all ages but directly responsible for those between 11 and 12. I have also had the experience watching children both related and unrelated to me for over 10 years.

Hello! My name is Alexis and I was born and raised in the city of Syracuse, New York. I am 25 years old and I am a Cum Laude graduate of Onondaga Community College. My degree is in Liberal Arts, specifically Psychology. I found my Child Psychology studies compelling because the mind and development of children amazes me. I have found such joy through watching children grow and helping them learn. There is nothing more honest and comforting than a child's presence. I have a stellar work ethic and I come from a close entrepreneurial family. My experience as a nanny has been fulfilling for the families, as well as for myself. I am looking for the right family fit that benefits everyone, but is the optimum benefit for the children. I am responsible and fully available. I am CPR certified and I have taken first aid classes. I feel strongly that there is more to child care than general duties. With the challenges of finding good child care you can depend on me to mentor your children and motivate them to achieve the most that they can. When you allow me into your family, you will see the genuine care and compassion that I hold in my heart which is perfect for the nurtured development of each child.
