I am DEPENDABLE, CONSCENTIOUS,ORGANIZED,PRO-ACTIVE, STRONG WORK ETHIC, LOVING,GENTLE,PATIENT, CREATIVE, AND PROFESSIONAL. Every child that has been in my care as nanny, has been such a joy to cherish and see grow. I have 10 years working as a nanny to professional parents working outside of the home. During that time I have worked with parents in areas of feeding, routines, developmental charting. As their children have moved through infancy and toddler-hood into their preschool years, I have shifted my attention to more in-depth activity plans as they demand more challenging games, toys, and projects. I truly believe that Communication is the key to a good parent-nanny working relationship. Providing clear commication helps to establish seamless transtions for a child. From sleep schedules, feeding routines and decipline. Making sure in all aspects of learning to respect, value and celebrate a child's individuality. I am seeking a nanny position in which I can support and facilitate a family's values and parenting philosophy. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration in your search for quality INFANT/toddler care.

I am a certified & experienced elementary/middle school teacher (10 yrs), an experienced math tutor, an experienced school nurse (RN), & an experienced live-in AND live-out nanny, so I have lots of experience working with, caring for, & teaching/tutoring children. Additionally, I babysat all thru my high school & college years. Today I have a middle-school-aged niece & nephew whom I adore & often care for when their parents are away (ever since they were preemies). I've also worked in the past as a volleyball coach, a pediatric home healthcare nurse, an in-home baby (newborn) nurse, a summer camp counselor, a summer camp nurse, & a volunteer for Big Brothers/Big Sisters. I still substitute teach & sub nurse in nearby school districts on occasion, as well. I've spent my whole adult life with kids, and they are the joy in my world!

My experience caring for children... hmm, well where should I start? I've been working at a preschool (60+ students enrolled) as an afternoon teacher for the past four years. My class is the 4-5 age group, but I'm in constant contact with all of the other classes as well, ages 2-5 (in the summer, ages 2-10). My duties are, but are not limited to, teaching new games, helping to develop gross motor skills as well as fine motor skills, reading books and teaching word/letter/color/pattern recognition. Since July of 2011, I've also been the cook at the preschool. I do the daily shopping for snacks, crafts, breakfast and lunch, manage a budget, prepare lunch and snacks and follow proper dietary guidelines. I've also been babysitting for the past 10 years. I babysit for many of the children at the preschool because I build very strong relationships with the parents and children. I love working with children. It's become quite a passion of mine. I'm constantly learning new things from them, and love teaching them new things as well. When my kids say, "I love you", it melts my heart every time. :) Also, I am from Springfield, MO but will be relocating to New York City as soon as I can. I have family up there and just love the city. I visit at least once a year (have been since 2007) and fall in love with it even more each time. I plan on going back to school to get a degree in theater management and directing (I've started a BFA in photography, which I love, but my love of the theater is calling my name). I will schedule my classes around my work schedule. If you would like further information, please don't hesitate to ask me.

I have over 13 years experience in childcare. Before moving to Springfield in 2005, I operated a home daycare in Festus, MO. for 5 years. In addition, I have worked at three Christian preschools. Two of which were in Festus, MO and the third was in Springfield. I was the lead teacher of 2's and young 3's at in Springfeild. In 2007 I made the transition from lead teacher in a preschool to nanny/family home care. Since then I have worked for three families on a part time/full time basis. Besides nanny duties I also clean houses part time so I am very able to do any duties a family would request of me.

I have never been an actual nanny before but I have worked very closely with three seperate families as their babysitter. The first family I worked for had a daughter that was 5 months old. I would watch her during the days until her parents were home from work. The second family had 3 children, two girls of the ages of 5 and 3 and a boy at the age of 7 month. I would pick them up from day care and pre school in the afternoons and watch them for the remainder of the evening. The last family that I worked for had two daughters ages 11 and 13. I would stay with them on weekend nights when their parents went out and on ocasion I would stay for the week and take care of the children and the house while the parents were away on business trips.
