I had the most amazing experience in my previous jobs as a nanny. My first job in New Jersey was taking care of two girls for 3 years. I enjoyed working with them very much and was an important part of their lives. We still 10 years later keep in touch via telephone and pictures. In 2007 I started to take care of a little girl from China. Her parents always made me feel like part of the family and we will always be friends. We worked together on her education and good manners. She is a little sweet lady. I am so proud of her, because I taught her Spanish and she learned very fast. Now, she is almost 7 years old, and she will be my little baby forever.

Growing up in a houshold with 4 sisters, me being the second of 5, I have always had the "natural nitch" to care for children. While assisting my mother with her home daycare, I scored my first babysitting job at age 12, caring for a 3 year old and a newborn. During the duration of caring for that family, another blessing was added to my list of responsibilites. Since then, I have babysat for several families with multiples of children. When I was 16 I started my first part time nanny job for a damily with 2 kids, 3, and 11 months and have worked for them since. During my years of working for them they welcomed their 3rd child into the family who is now 3 years old. The other are now 7 and 5. With the two oldest being in Elementry school they do not need my help as much, but I doo still babysit for them when needed.
