I'm a great candidate for job as nanny. I, of course, raised my own daughter, assisted with care of my grandson since he was a baby taking him once, twice a week and did a lot of fun things with him. I helped raise my now teenage niece since she was tiny. She stayed with me for days at a time. I provided her life with lots of enrichment and valuable experiences. Managed her career showing horses, took her back and forth twice a week to her trainer in Scottsdale-we traveled, she took up ballet and performed, took her to church so she could grow in a faith-she became an acolyte. Together we worked on her reading, writing, spelling, grammatical skills both written, spoken, punctuation, social studies, geography, math tables. We watched quality TV together-Animal Planet, Nat. Geo., Discovery Channel, so she would learn about biology, the world, and environment. On those days I took her to school and we ate breakfast in the cafeteria. I took her to the dentist, shopping for clothes, taught her about grooming, good taste in clothes, style, took her to lunch, dinner, events. I taught her how to help serve when I entertained. Let her and her friends help serve when I held entertained with Coffees and Teas and receptions, particularly at the holidays. She learned how to greet guests, and proper etiquette--I let her help with food preparation for these functions. Let her help me tend the herb garden and pick the herbs we used. She's now a lovely, confident and caring teen (age 15).
I am meticulous particularly with kitchen and bathrooms. I
am good natured, enthusiastic, aware, pro-active, knowledgeable and informed about most issues--including health and healthy eating and other issues involving the world in which we live. I am an accomplished cook. I am patient and caring. I engage children in conversation and turn issues or problems into learning experiences. I have a clean driving record.
Regards, Charlene. * Prefer live-in, particularly for full-time. If part-time I DON'T expect to be paid then for hours outside of required time. Once set, I would probably help otherwise as well. Please feel free to call me.
