Hello everyone, my name is Jamie. I'm 31 years old, and a mom of two amazing boys. I have worked with kids for as long as I can remember. It has always been a passion of mine, so much that I worked at a very well known daycare and was a Lead teacher, unfortunately my youngest had some medical issues and I had to leave my position. I am CPR certified and also CDA certified. This means I am licensed to work anywhere in the US for the next three years with children ranging from birth to three years of age. I really hope to spark your interest and hear from you. I have a lot of training in curriculum as well as daily learning skills to teach your children. On that note, let's chat! I hope to hear from you soon- Jamie

7 years (off and on) with a family I watched the twins for. Since they were newborns, changed diapers, fed, played with. As they got older I would watch them while their mother went to school or to her son's sports events since the twins get very antsy and never liked attending. 3 years with another set of 8 year old twins who had autism. I would help them with homework and meal prep. I did light house cleaning. I would also play games and do specific activities to help with motor skills and speech. 3 years (off and on) with a former teacher and her family watching her two kids ages 4 and 7. I still help this family with date nights and I watch the dogs and the house when the family goes on vacation. 2 years with a family with a 5 year old little girl. I absolutely fell in love with this job. I would get there in the morning, wake her up, make breakfast, get her ready for school and for the first year I drove her to school and then she started kindergarten and I would get her on the bus. It was one of the best connections I've made with a child.

I am a mother of a beautiful six year old little girl. I have been raising and taking care of children on and off for most of my life. I am enrolled in online college, so my availability is decently open. I love children, and is in fact my major preference. I am very patient, kind, and I love giggles and laughs. I enjoy a clean and tidy environment, and yes children often make messes, but I am willing to clean them up to keep a nice and clean home. I also cook, and enjoy healthy meals. I do clean up after myself as well. No job well done, until the job is 'done.' :)
