To start off I have been helping with watching of my little sister since I was 14 yrs old. I have been the main babysitter for her. I have done other babysitting as well. One of my last jobs was a nanny position. I had to care for 3 children. There is the oldest who is now 15 yrs old and has down syndrome, then there is the 1st boy who is now 14 and has A.D.D., then there is the 2nd boy who is now 5 yrs old I was there nanny for 3years. Now there is a fourth child a baby girl who is now almost 2. The mom decided after her little girl was born to stay at home. My job after that was being a nanny to a 4yr old little girl. I am no longer with that family I was with them for almost a year. I had a baby and while I was on leave they decided to hire a new nanny because they said I was gone for to long. I was only gone for 2 weeks at that time. I really loved working for the family and loved the little girl, but now I am looking for another family to work for and to love their child/children.

< 1 yr of experience

I have been caring for children and young adults since I was 13 years old. I graduated from the Safe Sitters Program. Caring for children is one of the many joys in my life. I am a teacher by heart and I love to see children grow and blossom through learning and play. They are our future and, as adults, its our responsibility to not only make sure we prepare them, but also to make sure it's a good one.

I am a firm believer in outdoors over television and book over video games. I live on a small farm with my husband and a menagerie of animals including, very recently, a bouncing baby billy goat. When I am not working or spoiling my animals I can usually be found with my nose in a book or, during the summer months, swimming in the creek near my home.
