I've been a nanny for nine years taking care of children from 6 weeks to 15 years old. I stress early age appropriate education, motor skills, manners and learn that coloring on walls may not be the best of choices! I help with baby proofing your home, provide basic meals and snacks.

Most recently I have worked at an elementary school as a teacher's aid. I was very involved with kindergarten-sixth grade. It required an ability to multi-task, oversee up to 50 children at a time, handle conflict, communicate with parents, prepare lesson plans, and work individually with students. I have also been the Children's Director where I organized and taught classes for nursery-sixth grade. This job also required that I handle all volunteer scheduling, curriculum development, and parent interaction. I have also worked as a summer nanny for two different families.

It's been fun and children love me. We swim, go to the library, pickup and take children to school, gymnastic, soccer, Dr. etc. I find children refreshing and their company enriches my life and I enjoy helping them develop into loving responsible teenagers. I have traveled a fair amount. This has enable me to view how other cultures deal with all types of "children's issues" so I can be creative. :) I teach children to make and eat delicious fresh fruit and green smoothies. This helps with behavioral problems. Nutrition is very important when caring for children. The proper amount of fresh fruits and veggies is essential and I teach the children to love and care for their bodies and minds by eating the proper foods. I feel proud of the work I have done with my "childcare" children.

To me it didn't feel like i was working because i enjoyed being with them so much. I had such a heart for them.
