Jen L. - Seeking Work in Mountlake Terrace

14.28 / hour

My name is Jennifer and I'm currently a nanny and a mom working in Ballard. Before my son was born, I was a Montessori teacher on the east side for nine years. During that time, I worked with children of all ages. After my son, who is now 16 months old (where is the time going!) was born we decided that it was in the best interest of our family for me to stay with him. For the last year I have been working for a wonderful, caring family in Ballard, who has a son his age. Together we go to parks, green lake, the zoo, the pumpkin patch and on other wonderful and enriching adventures. But of course, all good things must come to an end. Their circumstances have changed, and they are enrolling their child in day care. As I would like to include my own child, I am willing to negotiate salary to make it an equitable solution for both your family and mine. I have attained my Montessori teaching certificate, credits in Early Childhood Development, and I am infant/child CPR/First Aid certified. I have a safe and reliable vehicle (a 2008 Subaru Forester) and a clean driving record. I am also a non-smoker, and willing to do light housework in addition to watching the children as well. If this sounds like it would be a good fit for your family, I would love to hear from you.

I absolutely love kids! I started babysitting family friends's children when I was 10-years-old. I babysat for kids, ages 1 to 11-years-old and for all ages in between. I have watched up to 7 kids at one time and have delt with a fair share of sick children, spills, and clogged toilets. I do not believe a babysitter or nannys job is just to BE in the house with the children, but to interact with them. When I watch children, we talk, play, and do things. I love crafts and playing outside, and doing whatever games the children can come up with! With kids, you have to be able to be a little goofy. I would also love a chance to help your child with their homework. I am in the teaching program at Western Washington University and am majoring in Special Education with a dual endorsement of elementary Ed. I can cook, clean, run errands, whatever need be. This past summer I worked for a Daycare/Preschool and spent my days painting, reading, and all else that comes with fun of daycare with children ages 2-6.
