Ashley B. - Seeking Work in Black Diamond

Full-time hours

My name is Ashley and I graduated May 2013 from Washington State University with a Bachelor's degree in Human Development and Advertising. After graduating, I had the opportunity to work as an au-pair for a family with three children in Germany for seven months. I lived with them and watched the children grow and they really became family to me and we still keep in touch. Since I have been back I have been a teacher at an early learning center where I taught pre-kindergarten. I am also currently pursuing my Masters in Elementary Education K-8 at Seattle University with the ultimate goal of teaching first grade. I would love to find a family to nanny for long-term until I complete my masters in roughly two years. My courses are online so I have completely open availability. I love to plan interesting and engaging activities that children enjoy according to their interests. Additionally, I am CPR, First Aid certified and have a portable background check and fingerprints through the FBI through the school I worked for. I am available anytime and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
