Most recently I have done part time nannying for a military family with newborn twins, caring for the children so the mother was able to run errands and get rest. I have worked in daycare settings and helped families with homeschooling. I also have experience babysitting and working with children in Sunday school/church. I have worked with disabled children and orphans in Thailand and India. I have worked with special needs children as an occupational therapy assistant. I was a nanny for a family with 2 young children for almost a year. They moved to Europe, and sadly I did not join them. I am currently the weekend supervisor at a personal care home for adults with disabilities. I am looking for part time or possibly full time nanny work during the week.
