During the last 21 years I worked as a nanny for children from birth through 16 years of age. During that time I gained my associates degree in early childhood development at Washtenaw community college. Currently I am working toward my bachelor’s degree in special education for visual impairment at Eastern Michigan University. Children have always been an inspiration for me and it has been my career focus to work with them. My goal as a nanny/childcare professional is to be a positive role model and mentor in a child’s life. After all, children hold the future in their hands. It is my duty to work with the parent in a partner relationship to help give their child/children the best care possible. This way I can help to meet all of their child’s basic needs. I have some very good qualities to offer your children. I am patient, understanding, caring and a lot of fun. I am also responsible, trustworthy and clean. I will help children to encourage appropriate behavior skills and manors, be active, make good choices, and learn. I will engage them in a variety of activities including: field trips to places such as the zoo, pool, park, bowling alley, museums and the library. They will have a schedule throughout the day that incorporates reading, playing games, dress up, art and cooking activities that are age appropriate. I can provide a loving atmosphere where your children are able to develop trust and everyday skills to help them throughout the rest of their lives. Therefore, I feel I will compliment any family.

My childcare experience started when I was 14 years old. I was a Assistant in my church nursery. I floated between the infant room and the toddler room. When I was 16, I got a job as a Latchkey Aide for one of the elementary school in my school district. After graduating high school, I was offered a position at a local daycare. I was an Assistant in the Infant, Mobile Infants, Toddler, Young Preschool and covered breaks occasionally in the Preschool wing. I was there for a couple of years before deciding to return to school Full-time. In the middle of the semester I was asked to accept a nanny position, the youngest was 8 weeks old when I started and the brother was 5. I was responsible for caring for the youngest all day and driving the oldest to school. I packed lunches and made breakfast for the oldest as well. As the youngest got older I would take him to enrichment classes (like Gymboree, classes at the library) and we would go to the park a couple times a week to look at the frogs and turtles as well as play on the playground. I stayed with the family until the the youngest was 2 and 1/2 and the oldest was 7 and 1/2...at that time, they encouraged me to go away to school. I am coming to a close on my first year away at school and I would like to extend my family again become a nanny to another family.

I am a recent college graduate (12/13), licensed to teach in Ohio PreK-3 and Michigan K-8, and have recently moved to Michigan (9/14) because my husband accepted a position working with U of M's women's basketball program. Throughout the school year I have been a substitute teacher but have had really pleasant experiences as a nanny! During my sophomore year of college, I was a nanny for a family with four year old twins for six months until their mom went to work part-time. I then became a substitute teacher at a child development center for two years. I worked with children as young as six weeks old to twelve year olds. I completed my student teaching and a long term substitute position in first grade and have taught second grade summer school. I am extremely passionate about working with children and love their energy and passion for learning!
