I have babysat for numerous families since I was a freshman in high school. My love for childcare and child/family development chose me to major in Teacher Education at Miami University. I graduated this past May with a Bachelor of Science and a degree in Adolescent Young Adult Integrated English Education. Also, for the past 5 years I have been a nanny part-time while managing a full-time course load at college. I have been working for the same family the past four years, and they have 5 children (ages: 12 year old boy, 11 year old boy, 8 year old boy, 4 year old female twins).
I am extremely close with this family and am considered part of their family. I am very flexible in what I am willing to do as far as childcare and house care go, as my main goal is to help the family and children as much as possible.
With this family, I am responsible for helping in all areas of childcare - transportation, homework help, cooking, cleaning, laundry, communicating, being a positive role model, stimulating imagination, challenging them socially and academically, etc. I am also responsible for helping in all areas of home care - laundry, cleaning, cooking, organizing, planning, scrapbooking, etc.
