Hi! I have five years of experience working with families in my town as a regular after-school babysitter and as a summer nanny. I have experience working with children aged 3-12 years old. In high school I spent one summer as a nanny for a family with two children, a boy with aged 9 and a girl aged 8. I was responsible for playing with the kids, supervising swimming in the family's pool, making lunches and snacks, and cleaning up the house and yard before the parents returned. Also in high school, I worked as an afterschool babysitter for a family of three children with one girl and two boys who ranged in ages from 5 to 12 over the years I worked with them. For this job I was responsible for getting the kids off the bus and helping with homework until the parents got home. As part of my clinical experience for my undergraduate degree in speech-language pathology I worked in a Head Start preschool where I created and taught language enhancing lessons for a group of four children. Also, as part of my educational fieldwork for my undergraduate degree, I worked as a paraprofessional in a fifth grade classroom where I went around the room to gauge comprehension, re-teach subject matter as needed, and dealt with behavioral issues.

I like to keep everyday school subjects involved throughout the week. I like to help kids focus and learn about numbers colors shapes sounds and such things. I like to have structure along with some discipline. , meaning i don't do time out but i do redirect the child from the situation and the problem and we discuss what is making them act that way and what i can do to make it all better. I like to let the child also have a say in a little bit of what we are going to do for the day like what activities that they want to do and art projects. I like to have a set week with a lesson plan that way you are always knowing what your kids are doing throughout the day. I keep sheets also just in case you want a log of the day. I am felxable in what the parents want. Anymore questions please feel free to ask.

I am a fun, energetic, young woman who is willing to drop everything and be there for children who need her at a moments notice. I've been working with children all my life starting with when I helped my mom nanny for twins when I was about 10. Since then, I have taken many babysitting jobs and more full-time nanny jobs. I even worked in a daycare in the infant room and was eventually a head teacher in classroom of 2-year-olds. I worked for a family with a 2-year-old and 6-year-old for a little over a year and was then a live in nanny for twins for over four years since they were 2 months old. They were born premature and I learned a lot. I am now looking for something new. There have been many other families through the years as well and each child holds a special place in my heart. I love arts and crafts so I'm constantly coming up with fun projects for children to do. I also love to take children outside for playtime (parks, backyards, pond/pool/water park). I'm very musical and love to sing, enjoy visiting the library and baking. There is nothing more satisfying than taking care of a child and helping them learn.
