Julie B. - Seeking Work in Fort Lauderdale

20.00 / hour
Full-time hours

I have been babysitting for over a decade. I have worked in a daycare center, and summer camps. In college, I worked as a part-time swim instructor for children of all ages, and still give private swimming lessons. I have completed 3 years of nursing school, including my pediatrics clinical rotation, which I aced. I plan to enroll in a few classes next semester and work slowly towards finishing my RN. However, currently my main goal is to earn money doing something I truly enjoy (care-taking). I moved to Florida in January to care for my 91-year-old grandfather as his full time home health aide. I worked around the clock for him for 6 months. I did any and all household chores. I cooked 3 diet-appropriate meals each day, drove him to places at his request, and provided all of his medical care. Most importantly, I was his full-time companion. He has since left, but I plan to stay and make my life here in South Florida. Most recently, I cared for a 9 week old infant and 6 year old girl as well as a husky in a one room hotel as a temporary position for the past 2 months. As you can see I very much enjoy working with children. I also am very organized and dedicated to assisting in daily chores, errands and housework. I am energetic, encouraging and creative, with a genuine passion for working to help children learn and grow. I am exceptionally patient and have the ability to remain calm even in the most chaotic situations.

I'm the eldest of the 3 kids in my family, and always loved helping my mum out with my little brother and sister. I started baby sitting when I was about 15 over the summers and always had a great time with the kids. I lived in Australia for 2.5 years and looked after a 9-yr old boy after school. We formed a good relationship quickly, so I never had any trouble with him. I now work as a school teacher at a private school in Honduras, and have 86 students a day. I truly love being around children and helping them learn and nurturing their growth.

I am the oldest of four children. I have two brothers and one sister, all younger than myself. So really, my experience in caring for children started with my siblings. Ask my mom and she will tell you-- I was her right hand child care provider, from chauffeur to cook to homework helper until I moved away for college. I also logged over 150 hours of volunteer service and over 4 years of experience volunteering at an Elementary School in my mother's first grade classroom. I volunteered in other grade levels at this school as well. Additionally, I babysat all throughout my teenage years. I have been a certified swim teacher for four years and a certified lifeguard for two years working at two swim centers. Also, while attending Lake-Sumter Community College, I worked as a tutor for college students and well as community high school students in math and English.

I have been employed as a teacher/nanny/babysitter for more than a decade. I'm originally from Pennsylvania, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Theater Arts with a minor in Spanish. As a college student, I had the privilege of working as an intern for our children's theater summer camp and I found it to be a wonderfully rewarding experience. Upon graduation, I was ecstatic to be cast as an actress in a professional children's theater touring company, where I performed and taught in many schools throughout the Northeastern U.S. For more than seven years, I was employed as a school teacher where I taught children ages 19 months to 14 years old. On weekends, holidays, and during the summer months, I babysat/nannied for many of my students and their siblings, from infancy-teenage years. From 2011-present, I have been a nanny for wonderful families in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL and Melbourne, FL. I am well versed in changing diapers, bath time, bedtime, and basic meal preparation as well as teaching good manners and respect for ourselves and others. In addition to this, I have been trained in CPR/FA, and it is current until next June 2016. I look forward to meeting you and your wonderful family!
