Full-time hours

I love being surrounded by children of all ages. This sounds quite cliche, but it's definitely my passion to help others and I've found great happiness throughout the years working as an Aupair for a year, within schools in Austria or within the United States as an assistant teacher or as a long term substitute teacher, at language camps as a camp counselor, interning at a school which help children with disabilities, at a daycare for a year and obviously babysitting for families. This love has led me to my new job at a xx School as an aid for a boy with a neuromuscular disorder and as a babysitter during the evenings for a toddler during the week. My hope is to find a more permanent job as a nanny starting in the summer and lasting hopefully a year or two while I work on getting my Masters in Education online!

I've been a nanny for over 5 years now. And a babysitter for much longer than that. Typically I stay with a family for a year at a time but in December of 2011 I had a wonderful baby boy and would like to find a job where he can join in the fun with me. I started as a babysitter all through high school for different families and children ranging from the ages of infant to pre-teens. Six months after graduating I started nannying full time and have worked with chidren ranging in age from newborn to 15.

I have been babysitting since I was 14 years old. I am the oldest of 4 girls so I have been babysitting for quite a while. I have also taken care of many neighborhood families in the past including infants, teenagers, and even a family with a set of 5 year old rowdy twins and an infant. I am certified in CPR and I like to do things to keep kids active. I have previously picked up and dropped off children at camps and other activities. I am also accustomed to making meals and doing some light cleaning around the house when the children are occupied (and in view).
