Astride N. - Seeking Work in New Orleans

22.85 / hour

My name is Astride and I am a film and screenwriting graduate of Columbia College. Don’t let my degree deter you, as I have about 14 years of childcare experience. My most recent job was as a full-time live-in nanny for two medical Tulane residents. I looked after their daughters who are now 2 and 4. Although I am no longer their full-time nanny, I occasionally look after the girls (they are the two cute little ones in my profile picture). I've also worked for many other families in New Orleans, and I have great references. I love children; when I was a kid I swore that I would grow up to have one hundred kids. Thousands of diapers later, I’ve out grown that specific dream, but I still adore working with young people. I had my first babysitting job when I was 12, working for a family at my church, and now 14 years later, I’m still providing my services. I am originally from Boston, where I babysat for many families and landed my first full-time nanny job. For two summers, I also worked as a counselor in training at the camp that I attended every summer. After high school, I attended Temple University in Philadelphia where I took a mini break from child care in order to diversify my work experience. Two years later, I transferred to Columbia College in Chicago where I changed from Communications to a Film major. In Chicago, I worked for several families –some part time, full time, short and long term. I’ve worked with kids of all ages, from newborns to preteens and teens. I worked for a family who later hired me to work as the youth leader at her church for kids between the ages of six to sixteen. I also worked as a counselor during their yearly summer retreat. I am currently concentrating on my creative work and would prefer part-time work, short term work, occasional gigs and jobs along that line. I am flexible, so I am willing to work out different scheduling details. I don’t mind doing overnights, traveling, or doing a short term full time situation. Whatever it is, we can figure it out. I am a very active and energetic nanny! While you’re gone, you can expect that I will engage your children by taking them out to explore the city, playing tag at the play ground, collecting rocks and leaves during nature walks, visiting museums, zoo, or the aquarium, working on a cool art project at home, making mystery casserole or engaging in a baking project, reading books, playing pretend and more.

I have extensive experience with children of all ages. I began babysitting in my neighborhood when I was around 13 years old and now I am 25 years old. I was a nanny in Germany when I was 19 and I loved it. I lived with the family, traveled with them, and took care of their three children. I also have a younger brother and sister (ages 8 and 14) that I helped out with a lot growing up and I still help out with today. I was also a nanny for a single dad military pilot with three children ages 8, 11, and 14. I assisted with everything from homework help, driving to and from school/activities, meal preparation, and occasionally would stay with them for days at a time if their dad had to leave on short notice for a work mission. I received my Bachelor's Degree in 2011 from the University of New Orleans in Early Childhood Development. I also have a toddler niece that I spend a lot of time with and have been helping take care of her since she was an infant.

I have experience working in schools, camps, and private homes caring for children ages 3 weeks to 18 years. Most of my work was babysitting or seasonal work while I was in school, but in the past 3 years I have worked as a nanny in a nanny share, a paraeducator in a special education class, and a preschool teacher in a Regio-Emilia inspired school. My favorite setting by far is a home setting! As a nanny, I worked primarily for one family with an 8-month-old, a 9-year-old, and a 12-year-old. The older two were in school, and I helped with pick ups and drop offs throughout the school year. During this postiion I also worked with 2 other families to provide care for their children in a part-time nanny share situation. As a paraeducator, I worked in the self-contained room of a charter school with 4 children with severe to profound intellectual disabilities. I was responsible for their care and well-being and assisted the lead teacher in teaching life skills and academic lessons.

My experience caring for children stems from being the oldest of five children. I became a Red Cross certified babysitter at 12, and began regularly watching family friends and neighborhood children, which I have never stopped doing. At 16, I started life guarding and teaching swimming, which I have continued to do consistently, allowing me to master the skills necessary to be CPR/First Aid certified (current). I have taught swimming to children of all ages and abilities, as well as several children with autism, a service I could offer as your child's nanny. In college, I was a Resident Assistant, and though that is technically not taking care of children, it did further develop my ability to deal with crisis and the stress being away from family can place on someone. In 2011-2012, I was a live in au pair in Toulouse, France, for two little boys ages 4 and 5. The experience I gained from that job did not only change my life forever, but it gave me the confidence to know I can handle any nanny work, as it was 24/7. Most recently, I was a nanny/personal assistant/curatorial assistant to an amazing mother in Boulder, Co. I am confident in my ability to care for your family.
