Full-time hours

Being a nanny brings such joy to my life and inspires me. I love growing with families and their children. Its truly an amazing gift to be apart of there lives as they grow. I love how each family experience has helped me grow as a person and also taught me things that you cant learn in college. I thank all the children for that gift. Im proud of my hands on experience, you will often find me on the floor playing with children. I love to read and do character voices. Im a hard worker who is creative. I work well with family schedules and organization. Im looking for a family that does not put high demands on housework. I feel my time is better spend teaching the child(ren). Though I'm happy to help out with little things of course. I Live and breath all things kids even when im not working. My position is ending with my current family. It will be hard to say goodbye, (feels like i just held them as babies and now they are starting school) im excitted to meet and grow with a new family.

I grew up with a younger brother who I took care of every summer until I moved away...taking care of him while my parents worked was my first round of experience in babysitting! I took a babysitting certification course while I was in high school where I learned basic safety involving children and infants. In the last year of my undergrad at SUNY Potsdam, I worked at the North Country Migrant Education Center on my campus where I not only got to work directly with kids a lot, (generally pre-school aged) but I built their curriculums for school and for fun activities. I read books and made SO many play-dough structures! Although I don't have much professional nanny experience, I have nannied for family members and close friends many times and am an extremely caring and fast-learning person. I know this isn't totally related, but I recently got two kittens of my own and I am so passionate about raising them and nurturing them that my friends make fun of me because I read so many books and articles and treat them like they're human children. I like to have fun and I LOVE coloring, but I also love helping with homework and reading skills with kids. This is also not totally related, but I have a bachelors degree in communications with a GPA of 3.65 and am working now towards my masters of arts at SU in audio arts. I know many things about babysitting and kids, but anything I don't know, I would take the time and effort to learn because I'm a passionate and caring person.
