Janet W. - Seeking Work in Gresham

I've always loved children, and because I am the seventh child in a family of ten, I had eight nieces and nephews, along with a baby brother, by the time I was nine. Even at age 5, you would find me feeding and rocking babies and changing diapers! I remember being thrilled to have so many babies to take care of! My love for children has followed me without waning through life. If anything, it has intensified. As a teenager, I babysat as much as I could. At 17, with my Mom's support, I "nannied", full-time, 24/7, a six-month-old little boy for an entire summer while his mother was in Europe. I worked at a daycare in college. I've raised three sons and they have blessed me with four grandchildren. When my first grandchild entered my life in late 2001, I couldn’t get enough of her; it just made sense to become a nanny. So, in 2004, I did. In the ensuing years, I have had the privilege of working with many families in several capacities, from part-time temporary to full-time live-in. This stage of my life is proving to be the absolute best! Because of my passion for babies, in 2005 I was introduced to the concept of "doula", and promptly received training to become a Postpartum Doula. I had the privilege of working with many families with newborns, from single births to triplets. My task was to help the new parents settle in with confidence to their new role. I was there to help with breast-or-bottle-feeding support, newborn care and sleep issues, and to give that physical help so needed to enable the new Mama to rest and bond with the new baby. I helped with siblings and Daddies, and supported the entire family during those exhausting first few weeks of baby's life. I loved being a Postpartum Doula! I worked in that capacity for about a year and a half, balancing it with part-time nannying, along with an organizing business I had on the side. But, with much of my doula work happening at night, the need for a consistent schedule and regular sleep led me back to nannying full-time, which I have been doing since 2006. Being a nanny can be a bitter-sweet experience, especially when that inevitable day comes when It's time to say good-bye, which I recently had to do with little Maya and her family, when they moved away to San Francisco. The sweetness, however, is the joy and excitement of embracing a wonderful new family into my life and heart.

I have been nannying/ babysitting for children ages 0 to 15 since I was 16 years old. Depending on the age of the child, I have driven to and from school, helped with homework and done meal prep. I have also been responsible for getting the child to any after school activities that they have. I prefer to have the children in my home as I will also be watching my daughter, since I am a stay at home mom. However, I am very comfortable being at another home as long as I am able to bring my daughter. I am also very comfortable with pets. I do have tutoring experience as well. Homework has always been one of the most important things that I have done with children, and I am very comfortable in getting them to work on school work.
