For the past 8 years I have been a full-time nanny.I have also been babysitting since I was 12 ,for neighbors, family and friends. Most of my experience and interest with nannying has been with infants and toddlers. I am trustworthy, honest, organized, intelligent, FUN, loving, responsible, punctual, and most of all I love children. I love being active with children and enjoy planning fun activities, whether it be enjoying tummy time with an infant or helping a first grader to learn to read, or making fun arts and crafts! I enjoy swimming, biking, reading, spending time with my family and relatives, taking my neices and nephews to the pool and on other outings, going up north to the cabin, boating, fishing, camping, DIY projects, organizing anything, going to the movies, snuggling babies!, cooking, crafting, sewing I could go on and on! A bit more about child care, I also had the oppurtunity to be a teachers aide for a kindergarten and first grade class while a senior at school. I have taken many classes on child development , health , family and marriage class, Career Explorations focused on Elementary Education and any other class that I could enroll in to educate me further in child development.I also completed college courses on child development. And continue to educate myself through college and reading daily.

I recently started a new position working as a special education paraprofessional. I love my new job and look forward to going back in the fall. Right now I am looking to work with some younger kids this summer (and would be open to continue working in the fall after school). For the past year, I have had the wonderful opportunity to work as a psychiatric technician at a partial hospital program. I have been working with kids aged 5 to 18 and have really enjoyed putting everything I learned in school to use at my job. The days can be long and hard but are also incredibly rewarding. I have learned so much from working with these kiddos who have some additional mental health needs. At this position, I have been expected to follow a schedule, plan social skills activities, behavior management, verbal de-escalation, etc. As a psych tech, I worked closely with a team of doctors, nurses, therapists, and social workers to plan and implement treatment plans. Previous to my job as a psych tech, I worked as a before/after school teacher while I was finishing up my degree. As a before and after school teacher, I was expected to implement the daily schedule, lead crafts, large and small group activities. I also helped students develop their listening and communication skills, self control, and problem solving. Another integral part of this position involved communicating with students, parents, and school faculty.
