Paige P. - Seeking Work in Meridian

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

I have worked as a child care provider for ten years. For the first six I self-contracted for regular clients while I finished secondary school. I was then taken on as a Childcare Teacher for the xx where I provided childcare including assisting PreK-high school freshman with homework. I also taught beginning Spanish to elementary students through my own curriculum for a semester. I worked there for a year before leaving for full time self-contracted nannying. Immediately then I au paired in Taipei, Taiwan. Since returning I continued nannying for the next two years, caring for families with five or more children at a time, from infants to teenagers, children with special needs—many families in many different situations! I often ran errands, cooked, and performed heavy housework. In this past year I've worked office positions so I could also assist you with office duties and light paperwork should you work from home. Whatever your family's needs, I would be happy to fill them!
