I have extensive experience babysitting/nannying and working with children. Mainly I work with children and babies 5 years old and younger. My past experience does include older ages and I would be willing to work with older children. I graduated Villanova University undergrad and I recently finished my teacher certificate in Elementary Education and Special Education from West Chester University Graduate program. I have decided to pursue a nanny position instead of a teaching job for current financial reasons.

I am a PA certified teacher and most recently I was a substitute teacher, subbing for grades K - 12. I also was a tutor for a 13 year old girl. When tutoring I also performed nanny tasks, like making sure she had her snack, advising hygienic practices and directing her chores. I taught at-risk students for a few months. I taught 9th and 10th grade students in English and Spanish. I was a babysitter in college for an AA mother's group. I watched all the mother's children while they had their meeting.
