I have had a passion for childcare my entire life. At 10 I started by volunteering in our church nursery with newborn babies up to 6 year old children in a 8 to 1 ratio and continued to do so until I went to college. As a teenager, I also was the 'after care' nanny for two boys, aged 5 and 7, in full charge, doing laundry, housekeeping, helping with homework, feeding them snacks and dinner and putting them to bed. I babysat, house-sat and pet-sat for families throughout my high school years while in Naples, Italy. American families wanted help for longer periods of time in Italy. They would leave their children, homes and/or pets in my care to travel extensively. Those experiences are my background as a temporary nanny. After the birth of my first son I took leave from my Dental Hygiene work and opened a daycare in my house. In my transformed home, I supervised 5 additional children consistently, ages 4 months to 4 years, including a hearing impaired tot. After my third child was born I worked at home for the next decade, though I consistently taught Sunday school for ages Kindergarten to Sr. High and volunteered for the MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers) program each week. I have acted as a doula in several births. I consisitently volunteered as 'Room Parent' in school classrooms. I worked in an area School District, initially, as Security in the halls, then, four years later, I was recruited to work fulltime in the Autistic Support room of the Special Education department. There, I worked to help students to learn and to modify behaviors while in the work based learning program. Where, after 6 years, they would graduate and gain employment. I continued three years of companionship for the family of a former special needs student. For the family, The ARC and my charge, I worked to help her keep up the social, academic and monetary skills learned during school by eating out, grocery shopping, going to amusement parks and regular area parks together, as well as, reading, shopping, cooking and watching movies together. I traveled extensively with large groups of teens on teams and for classes as chaperone. I have flown to California, Michigan, Arizona, New York, Washington DC, New Jersey and France with them through the years as a chaperone. I raised 4 very busy kids and now very much enjoy playing with my two grandchildren.

Hi! Aside from having the experience of being a mother myself, I was recently a nanny for 3 children in NYC. I had been with this family for over 3 years. I started off at a daycare setting where I met them when they decided to hire me full time as their nanny. I became part of their family which made it extremely hard to part with them when we decided to move here to Emmaus, Pa. in July. I have great references and am available to discuss my abilities in further detail at your earliest convenience. Thank you! :)
