Taryn J. - Seeking Work in Naperville

17.14 / hour
Full-time hours

My name is Taryn. I am currently completing my second year of teaching at a private preschool, but am looking for a nanny position. I have five years of nanny experience with one family. I was with them since the birth of their first child and have become almost a part of their family throughout the years. The family now has a 7 year old, 5 year old, and 2 year old. I love what I do for a living, but am my school is unfortunately closing. Being a teacher and a nanny, I have spent time working with kids both in an educational setting and in a home setting, and am a firm believer that you can make anything educational. When working with kids, I hope to help the children develop educationally, emotionally, socially, and physically, and that the parents desire a healthy lifestyle for their children in all areas. With my former family, I spent time doing light housekeeping, cooking, errands, grocery shopping, laundry, swim lessons, and Spanish class among other things. I would love to hear more about your family and your nanny position. My old employers would also be available as a reference.

I have taken care of children off and on in some capacity since I was 11. One of the boys from my first babysitting/nanny jobs graduated college recently (time flies!). I have also nannied (live-in) for over 2 years. I prefer an active lifestyle and to be outside as much as possible (weather permitting). Ideally, I hope to find a family to be a part of; do not want to be just an employee. With that said, I appreciate the importance of family time and would never intrude on it. Basically, I want to ensure there is mutual respect, open communication, and similiar values. I have an educational endorsement, in addition to my BA. I know some ASL and am trying to expand on my Spanish. I have experience working with therapists (OT, PT, SLP, and Vision) to help assist in therapy. Due to my education, I would be willing/able to work with the children on letter/number recognition, articulation, phonetics, reading, writing, homework, and general school preparedness.

I was born to be a child caregiver and teacher. I have cared for children since I was 10 years old (I had a newborn baby brother at that time) and helped my mother take care of him. I was a babysitter for other children throughout my teen years and early twenties. I periodically babysit for friends' children, even to this day. I have been a certified elementary teacher for 9 years, teaching children from Kindergarden through 6th grade in public and private schools in Ohio and Illinois. I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education and another Master's degree in School Administration. Also, I was a nanny for a family in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio who had two sets of twins - two 14 month boys and two four year olds - boy and girl.

I have worked for 4 years in a kindergarten that specialized in speech impediment. I later worked for two families which I still keep in touch with. In the first family I helped to raise twins for which I started working when they were 3 weeks and finished working when they were 5 years old due to schedule change that preschool required. I later started to work in a family of 3 children. When I started, the oldest was 5, middle boy was 3 and baby girl was 7 months. I was responsible of driving the kids back and forth from school, friend's homes and daily activity centers. I love to keep the kids busy with art projects, baking or something as simple as puzzles because I believe that it is very important for children to get to know their surroundings and discover what is around them through experiences such these. Art projects help kids develop their skills and focus on one job at the time. Because I am also an educator, I make sure that they love their activities but also learn from them. I highly value honnesty and am always thankful when parents are honnest with me as I am with them because if there is ever a time I should be confronted about something regarding the children, I ask to be open and inform me on any issues
