29 yrs of experience

I have been a nanny and preschool teacher most of my life. I have cared for children of all ages, including infants, multiples, and special needs children. I know that working with children is what I am meant to do, and decided years ago that it is truly my passion. I love to watch them grow and learn, and I truly enjoy teaching them the skills they need. I love to be active with them, plan play dates, and take them to activities in the community. My last family had a two year old girl, and almost 4 year old boy when I began... then became pregnant with twins. It was a handful and I loved it. I am very clean, and helpful in all areas. I have been to Haiti on mission trips, where I work with infants to older children, and do anything that is needed. I began caring for children when I was young, and in high school worked with an autistic child as his caregiver. I also nannied for a family of four in college where the children ranged from 3 to 14 when I began. I attended Angelo State University, and Texas Tech University. I have my CDA from Collin County Community College as well. While I was a preschool teacher, I have always had part time Nanny positions from children I taught as well. I have been very blessed to work with some amazing families that are like family to me. I am currently an assistant director, and preschool teacher in Allen. Although I enjoy it, I truly miss being a nanny. If you feel I might be a good fit for your family, please contact me.

I currently work full-time at a children’s hospital and am working on my MA in Holistic Health. I taught for two years prior to starting at the hospital at a private school for special education / autistic children. It was one of my most rewarding and memorable working experiences. I’m also a mom and know that we all put our children first and want what’s best for them. I miss working with kids, which is why I would love doing this among my busy schedule. My daughter is 11 and shares the same passion of working with kids and aspires to be a teacher, if acceptable by the family, she hopes to join me on my nanny adventures. My family and friends describe me as being kind, joyful, creative and a book nerd. I’m also fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. Happy to help with cooking and housework. Thank you for your time and I look forward to meeting you!

I have been a preschool twos teacher for 3 years now but have worked with every age in our program from infants to elementary/middle school aged kids. I have done babysitting jobs on the side before 2 of my frequent families moved away and the other 3 parents don't go out much . For a while I was working full time, in school and babysitting for 5 families. I like to do some light house cleaning after the kids go to sleep. I don't mind overnights and I love bringing fun stuff to do with the kids or taking them out to chucky cheese or something. I love and take great care of each child in my care.
