Kara J. - Seeking Work in Towson

I began babysitting for a family friend at about the age of 12. I continued to babysit for family friends and for teachers at my middle school and high school. In high school, in order to graduate, we were required to complete a senior project of our choice. I chose to work with our SACC (School Age Child Care) program to teach children ages 4 through 6 a few songs. I worked with them one day a week and at the end of the semester, we put on a musical concert for the children to perform the songs that they had learned. Then, after my first year of college, I nannied for a family during the summer. I cared for a 12-year old girl and a 7-year old girl. I was responsible for providing the two girls transportation to swimming and dance lessons. I also had to provide breakfast and lunch for them, as well as plan some events during the day and summer for entertainment. Since October of 2009, I have been the full time nanny of a girl age 18 months (2 months when I started). The family will be transitioning her to day care staring in March so my services will no longer be needed.

I began babysitting when I was 13 after being certified by the Red Cross as a babysitter (a class with taught CPR and first aid - although I am not currently certified). I babysat for a family with one child for about 4 years, and a combined family with 4 children for about 3 years. I obtained my first nanny position at age 16 and worked with a family with a 9mo. old, 2 yr. old, and 4yr. old. I absolutely loved the family and was with them for a year, but academics and extracurricular activities interfered. My second nanny position was for a year as a shared nanny for two infant boys. I no longer work with them because they are now close to 2 years old and no longer require two nannies.

My name is Kate and I'm a recent graduate of Towson University (2014!) I received my Bachelor's Degree in Family and Human Services (also known as Family Studies) with a track in Child Life. Prior to changing my major to Family Studies, I was taking courses in the early childhood education department. I had thought I wanted to be a teacher, when I stumbled across Family Studies. I wanted to find a major that didn't limit me to one career aspect. With Family Studies I was given the opportunity to take two internships where I learned to work alongside children and families. One internship was working with patients and families in the PICU at University of Maryland Children's Hospital and the other resided at Ashland Preschool. From taking two internships I really found out that my passion is for working with children, helping them grow and learn about the world around them. This is where I feel I belong as a nanny. I have also worked at Towson University's Child Care Center for two years and nannied part time over the summers while completing my undergraduate coursework.

I started out working in a daycare after high school. I took all the early childhood classes in high school and I knew I wanted to work with children. After a few years at being in daycare I realized I wanted to have more of a one on one experience and decided I wanted to become a nanny. I have worked for 3 amazing families and have remained close with all of them. I had left my last family to have my own baby . If possible I would like to bring him to work with me. He is 9 months old. He has a great personality is always happy.
