Janeth M. - Seeking Work in Newbury

Hourly rate13.20 / hour

Taking care of younger cousins and a very ill grandmother began at the age of 7 when I lived in Colombia. My responsibilities also included all household duties and up keep. I am adopted and the oldest of 10 children, 9 of us are adopted from various countries. Through out the years I helped my mother during the summer months in our (which included kids of ages 3 to 14.) From summer to summer 2 kids grew to 16 extra kids in our home. Our kids came from the inner cities of NY and therefore presented to us with many personal, social and emotional issues. My duties included teaching school, personal hygene, social interaction, and domestic skills. In a home with so much diversity in personalities and cultures, I had lots to learn and adjust to. I was blessed to become a friend and counselor to many of the kids. God has given me the gift of service, compassion and patience. I became a nanny in 1995 to a 5 1/2 year old boy. I was thankful then that I had God, good growing up foundations and plenty of experience in child care to guide me through the obstacles I had to face to gain Ruben's trust and friendship. As I look back on all my children-encounters and experiences, I know they all came at different stages in my life to help me mature, be thankful, and be blessed by God's children; I learned many lessons about myself and about life in general.

I had an amazing childhood. I was raised by my father whom was very strict and school and work were very important to him but I also grew up playing softball, on the swim team, cheerleading and danced. In the summers I would attend summer camp where I grew up to become a CIT. My father was very involved with my extra curricular activities such as coaching and being at all my performances he is my role model.
