At a young age of following in the footsteps of an amazing father who taught high school, I knew I wanted to work with children. So for years I have been substituting any opportunity that comes along to work with children into my life. My very first paying position was at age 12 when I worked full time during the summer for a day care center in downtown Richmond. The ages ranged from 5 months to 5 years and I truly felt this was the best experience for me. The children’s center became like a family home for me and I loved every minute that I was apart of their summer program. I was asked to come back and work for them the following summer, but I decided to explore other endeavors. In between odds jobs while in school I worked consistently as a babysitter. Most jobs required my services part time on the weekends since, at the time, I was in school. But as the years progressed I dedicated my services on a more full time basis working as an Au Pair and Nanny during the summer months. I loved my job. I was offered an opportunity at age 16 to work as a summer nanny paying more than my job at the time, so I quit and came to work for a family friend. I think this gave me the chance to use my creative niche and make the best possible summer experience for a talkative 5 and inquisitive 7 year old boy and a flourishing 13 year old girl. From planned ahead picnics in the park to arts and crafts as we strayed away from the heat, it was a summer that I thoroughly enjoyed. And I’ll admit the kids had no complaints, as the family asked me to still work part time for them once the summer was over. To this day I am still an on call babysitter for the family. Since then, I have worked a myriad of babysitting and nanny positions and I have loved every experience. I am ALWAYS on call.

At the age of 21, one of my pride and joys of life is impacting the lives of young children and becoming a better person from them. My child care experience started at the age of 15 when I was to supervise the playing area for kids ranging from 5-12 at a local summer area. From there I began to have a love for kids and also took on babysitting kids in my neighborhood. By the age of 17, I gained the trust of several parents where I would come over and home sit where I was responsible for changing diapers, feeding babies and running errands with the children. Currently, I am heavily involved in the lives of several younger children ranging in age from 1-5! I have had many responsibilities as a nanny but most importantly I have engaged in children's learning experiences, be involved in playtime duties as well as nap time, meal preparation, picking up from school, grocery shopping, and one of the last is laundry duty. I love everything about kids and thats why its rather hard for me to limit this bio to only the most important things! Upon entering Spelman College in 2012, I became an ambassador for the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, where I worked with kids from all backgrounds. I was responsible for total supervision, bonding and establishing positive relationships, teaching problem solving methods, organizing activities to increase social skills, self respect and anti-bullying tactics. Currently I still take part of this program and have a 2-year-old niece that I have learned to care for since her birth, and I occasionally babysit a close friend's 4-year-old daughter just to gain more experience. My interests include theater/political science. Those are my majors in college. I also love cooking, writing, cheerleading, interacting with kids, shopping, outdoors, and reading. You should choose me over someone else because I truly enjoy enriching the lives of young kids. Ever since I've started working with kids I've found myself bonding with each and everyone of them from doing things like: giving them fun tips on their homework, sharing their favorite hobbies, exploring new games, but most importantly, bettering myself. I may not have had the longest experience, but it doesn't take long to find something you are truly passionate about. I thank you so much for the opportunity.

I recently moved to Atlanta from Miami. My fiancé is finishing law school at Emory in December and we plan to make Atlanta our permanent home. Most recently, I was a nanny for an adorable 14 month old boy. I had been working with the family since August. My duties included meal preparation, light housekeeping and laundry, as well as attending to all of the needs of the child. Prior to that job, I was a nanny for another little boy in Miami. I began working for them when he was 4 months old. After the birth of the their 2nd child, they made the financial decision to put them both in daycare. My duties included complete care for the child including meal preparation, laundry, planning and executing activities and play dates. I have been a full time nanny for a family of 5 with children ages 6, 13 months and an infant whom I started caring for when he came home from the hospital at three days old. My responsibilities included complete care for all three children, such as laundry and meals, as well as some light household cleaning(sweeping, dishes, etc.) I did several overnights a week to do baby feedings and was the primary caregiver for all three children. I have been a live in nanny in the past for a family of 4 kids all under the age of 12, with the youngest being a toddler. I also have a lot of experience with children because I am the oldest of 4 and my three siblings are much younger than me, so to my parents, I was a free babysitter. I have also been a regular babysitter for different families with children varying from age newborn to teenage. I am in excellent health and have no allergies. I can do light cooking and cleaning as well as run any necessary errands. I have a clean driving record and one of the safest cars on the road (Volvo S60). I am a very hands on nanny and enjoy outdoor activities. I do not believe in sticking a child in front of the television. I love coming up with new activities that complement the interests of the children. attended school in Chicago for 2 years at Loyola University before transferring to College of Charleston where I majored in Elementary Education. I hope to hear from you soon.

I'm open to a housekeeper/home manager position as well. I prefer a live-in position, but I am willing to consider live out. I'm also available for overnights and occasional care. I've been a nanny since 1998. I'm very passionate about what I do and know it's important which is why I take it seriously. I try my best to make a positive difference in children's lives while being silly at the same time! Through the years, I have taken care of many children all with unique personalities. It never ceases to amaze me how they always have one thing in common though: Their simple approach to life. Through their eyes I have been able to see and enjoy things I would have otherwise missed. I can honestly say I have learned just as much from them as they have learned from me! Past families have appreciated my willingness to jump right in and tackle whatever needs to be done whether it is tasks around the house, making up the children's schedules or helping to figure out how to change an unwanted behavior. It's not out of the ordinary to find me brainstorming a solution to a concern, and I never approach anything with the attitude that it can't be done. I love to have fun but safety is always first priority. I'm firm yet loving when it comes to my approach with children, and I find positive reinforcement to always be useful. I'm organized, detail-oriented, proactive and self-motivated! I work best when the relationship with the parents is a partnership where there is an abundance of mutual respect and understanding from both sides. Having good communication along the way is also important to me. I find this works well and everyone feels heard and appreciated. I know how wonderful a nanny experience can be when you find the right match. I hope to find a family who will appreciate all I have to offer! In return I can assure you I will take care of your children to the best of my ability! I look forward to hearing from you! *Resume and references are available upon request

I am a recent college graduate with a passion for childcare. I helped raise two family members from infancy to toddler-hood, I babysat regularly as a teen, I founded a growing and well-established childcare collective in Atlanta in June of 2010, and I have had the pleasure of being a nanny for two young boys (ages 4 and 7) for the last three months. Recently, I have been taking one-time full day gigs providing childcare for infants to 2 year-olds. Outside of paid childcare work, I am deeply involved in childcare activism, as I believe passionately in the importance of the involvement of parents and children in progressive movement building and in accessible childcare as a fundamental need for a democratic, family-supporting society. I am highly organized, energetic, and dedicated to the work that I care about.

I have the ability and love to spend time swimming, skating, watching movies, playing different games in the park with children, cooking delicious pancakes or other food, doing handicrafts, and at the moment I´m reading a book titled "Como organizar fiestas y actividades para niños" (How to organize games and parties for children), so I can get new ideas of activities to do with the children that belong to my host family. I also like to study and learn new things, ride horses, four tracks, go out with my friends and go to camp sites. I'm a very delicate and active person. I think that this is so important to take care of children of any age. I had experience and acquired skills taking care children of 1 year or older, with whom I learned to change diapers, prepare and give baby bottles, practice indoor and outdoor activities, play games with groups of 15 children in a daycare center and with only 1 or 2 children (cousins or the children of my mom's friends) in my house. I also learned how to help them in the restroom, give them breakfast, lunch or dinner, teach them vowels, animals or numbers, read stories to them, help them to do handicrafts, carry them and take them in the car to different classes or pick them up at school. From November of 2012 to May of 2013, I was the nanny of two teenager; I used to drive them around to different classes, help them with homeworks and cook them. Then I went to take care of a baby of 1 year and 10 months; to whom I changed her diaper, prepared her baby bottles, teach her Spanish numbers or colors, took her to the park, gaver her baths and sometimes do babysitting with her. And after that I went to do babysitting with the 10 and 12 years old daughters of two police offices, so I used to stay at home since 8:30pm, get them to bed and at the next day wake them up for school, make sure they get ready and have everything in their backpags and then take them to the bus stop.
