I am currently the lead two's teacher at a local preschool and have been working with children for as long as I can remember. I started helping my mom teach sunday school when I was in 5th grade, began babysitting as a teenager and got my first teaching job when I was 20. Children have always been a part of my life and I wouldn't want it any other way! I have experience working with children of all ages, from infants to teenagers! I also have some experience working with children who have disabilities. I believe in providing a fun, nurturing and educational environment for children. This is my goal as a teacher and will continue to be my goal as a nanny!

Heather - Seeking Work in Sycamore

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

I started babysitting (Red Cross certified) at age 13. I have spent the last 10 years in jobs where I worked with children and young adults, and I love doing it. I have been a lifeguard, swim instructor, camp counselor (at both girl scout and special needs camps), and after I graduated college I worked for a wonderful school on Chicago's north side with teenagers and young adults with severe autism. I believe that every child, no matter their needs or weaknesses is an individual first and has likes and dislikes. I am going back to school for speech pathology, and I am hoping to become involved in early intervention for children with autism.
