20.00 / hour
Full-time hours

I am a mother of a beautiful 11 year old little girl . Back in 2006, I watch a 2yr old little boy with my daughter (she was 1 year at the time). His mother worked days from 8-3 and I worked nights 4-11. I was his nanny for about 4 months till his mother gave birth to her second son and took leave from her work. In 2008, I worked at a Daycare as a Teachers Aid to eleven 2 year olds temporarily. I have been babysitting since I was 14 years old. I always have families wanting me to care for there children. I don't believe in just watching a child play, you must interact with them and show them rather that tell them. I used to help out in the preschool Sunday School class weekly for 4 years. In my later teenage years I helped school my younger sister while my mother taught my 2 younger brothers. I am still to this day being called to babysit for family, friends, and other Families in need.
