Samantha H. - Seeking Work in Knoxville

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

I have cared for two twin boys from the time they were 5 until they turned 11 and no longer needed a nanny. I took care of all their meals, homework time, bathing, recreational activities, as well as took care of housework while I worked. I was responsible for providing them with a stable, healthy environment while their mother worked full time. When the boys got old enough to stay at home alone for a couple hours until their mother got off work, I decided to move on to another family who needs my help. Along with the twin boys I also helped to take care of my 3 younger brothers, ages 2, 9, and 10 while I was at home.
