Ruth S. - Seeking Work in Port Lavaca

8.57 / hour

I love working with children and have babysat sporadically in my teen years and then was a live-in nanny for three months in 2008 and then for 10 months in 2009-2010. I was a full-time mother's helper for 10 months from 2015-2016. I have provided part-time babysitting in 2013-2014 and am currently providing some babysitting but mainly providing schooling help for a family of eight children on a volunteer basis. Have babysat children age 3 months - 14 years old. I am patient, loving and fun. I tend to have more of a quiet personality than very outgoing. I can provide activities for the children or simply keep a peaceful atmosphere for them, and am also happy to do housework and laundry. I don't know how to swim. I have had CPR though it may need renewed by now. I am looking at moving to India next year and am looking for a paying nanny job for the next 6-7 months (possibly a while longer and can discuss possibilities with you). Looking for a live-in nanny position anywhere, or preferably a live-out position around Watertown, SD or Victoria, TX.
