I was a shared nanny for this family and one down the street for 2 years with the neighbor starting at 3 months old.

In being a couselor at 3 different camps for 4 summers, I have worked with ages 5-85. One camp was for special needs campers of all ages. Two summers were spent with 4th -12th graders. One summer with 5 - 12 year olds leading them in Bible studies, recreation, crafts and much more. I have taught birth to 6th grade in Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. In working with children with ADD, ADHD, MS, MD, Autism, Cerebral Palsy I have learned of options in working with children.

Hi my name is Amber and I am currently looking for a new job due to my nannying job coming to an end come August. I am 23 and currently watching a 9 month old and five year old. I love the opportunity to watch kids grow into their own person and help educate them as well. Being that a kids brain has developed 90% by the age of five, I find it very important to work with kids everyday in a fun, safe environment. I have GREAT references and have been watching kids for as long as I can remember. I am a graduate with a degree in Human Resource Management. After caregiving for my grandmother last year and now two little boys I have found what makes me happy. I hope to continue in the caregiving field as it is very rewarding and brings me happiness. Please email me with any information or questions!
