Full-time hours

I have been what I like to call a "professional baby-sitter" for fifteen years. I started out as a mother's helper in my church's 2-4 year old class. As I got older I became one of the lead teachers for that class. I have taken care of groups of children aging from infant to teenagers and in numbers from one to twelve. I have been a mother's helper for many mother's in my church. I was raised in a single parent household with younger siblings. As the oldest child in my family I was called upon to take care of my younger brother and sister while my father worked.

A little bit about myself, I am 26, a born and raised Texan, and I stem from a family of 10. I grew up working on the farm and helping my mother and her friend with their in-home daycare business. At a young age I babysat not only for my family but for the families of my parent's friends and as I got older I began to nanny full time. I took a short break from working with kids and went into retail for a few years where I was quick to move up in the company's I worked for. In that time I also moved to California for school and did some part time babysitting and after school care. I couldn’t stay away from working with children for very long and I found myself employed by the elementary school districts in California. I worked as a substitute teacher's aide in the mornings at whichever school in the district needed me and in the afternoons I was an instructional aide in the ACE after school program where I quickly moved up as an assistant to the site facilitator.

I grew up babysitting from about age 12 on for families in my church and neighborhood. I volunteered as an infant to age 5 sitter for a womens bible study for two years during highschool. I was a nanny for two children for a summer in Maryland in 2007, and spent 1.5 years as a group counselor at a residential home for boys. I worked two and a half years as a houseparent for 14 boys in a childrens home. I was also a preschool Sunday school assistant for a year, and the head teacher for 6 months before moving to California. I am currently working as an afterschool/evening nanny during the weekdays with a 4 year old girl and six year old boy who are truly delightful! However the hours are not regular and I am looking for a reliable schedule.

I have worked for a family for 17+ years, beginning as their nanny for their 2 boys when they were 3 & 5 yrs of age. This involved all activities pertaining to caring for the boys, including meal prep, driving them to various appointments and or activities. In the Summer this included overseeing any and all activities at a lake house including driving boys in boat and helping with teaching both boys how to swim. In later years, I would pick up boys from bus stop or school and transport to athletic functions and aid in homework help and tutoring. I am still helping this family even though the boys are now in college, seeing now to house/caretaker duties such as dog/horse sitting.
