Jerika T. - Seeking Work in Knoxville

Hourly rate8.57 / hour

At first, I started out at 12 years old with my 2 nephews living with my mother and I full-time, it started to bring out my motherly instincts faster than I ever thought possible. As for another part of my childcare experience, I have been working at an early learning daycare center for 2 years and have built up high credibility - references available. I babysit for almost 20 families now but if you do decide to hire me for the Summer of 2012, you will be my only client. Thank you :)
