I have been a babysitter since I was 10 years old starting with several jobs with my two younger siblings and then later for various family friends and for others to whom I have been recommended. Over the past twelve years, I have watched an estimate of 50 different families with a number of children ranging from 1-6.

About My Nannying Experience and Style I have worked with two families as nanny, with children ranging in age from 11 weeks to 4 years. My duties in both cases included care and welfare of the children first and foremost. When time permitted, I did light housekeeping, laundry and food preparation relating to the children. My style of caring is warm and nurturing. I am soft spoken and gentle, treating children with love and respect. I am a strong proponent of preempting challenges before they arise, using proper guidance, reading the child's cues, having a predictable schedule, and setting limits so that the child knows what to expect and so that I can best anticipate their needs. Should we come upon a problem, I use redirection, empathy and compassion to resolve any issues, while being mindful of the child's thoughts and feelings. I've worked in a variety of professions, but I've always been happiest when working with children. Being a nanny gives me the opportunity to have a closer relationship with children and become an integral part of a family.

I started babysitting children when I was about 15 years old. I babysat several families in my neighborhood until I graduated from undergraduate school and moved to North Carolina. During the summer months of 2005 I babysat two boys, ages 5 and 10 years old, Monday-Friday from about 8am-2pm. During the summer months of 2006 I worked at a camp. I was a camp counselor where I planned activities and supervised children ages of 7-15. As a 2003 graduate of St. Bonaventure University, I have experience working with children at the second and sixth grade level, in both suburban and urban school districts. After college graduation, I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher in North Carolina. In August of 2007, I accepted a first grade position in Knightdale, North Carolina. Immediately upon my arrival at , I felt as if I had found a whole new part of myself with my enthusiasm for working with children. I worked in first grade for a year, and then moved up to second grade, for a year. During my summers in Raleigh (2008 and 2009), I worked at a summer camp . There, I assisted developmental therapists in helping autistic and developmentally disabled preschool children. I worked on various fine motor and gross motor activities with autistic and developmentally disabled preschool children. In 2010 I moved to Charlotte, NC. I have taught elementary school here in CMS for 5 years. Two summers ago I was a full time babysitter for two boys ages 5 and 8. I would take the boys to and from summer camp and then care for them until dinner time.

I started babysitting for close family and friends when I was 13 years old. This included children as young as 4 and as old as 12. I did this for about 2 years until I became a lifeguard at 15. I worked for xx in Charlotte for 6 years. My last three years with them I was in a manager position working at the pool up to 35-40 hours a week. I took that job very seriously and I have made a number of saves for children who jumped into the water with out their "floaties". I also taught swim lessons for a year. I continued to take babysitting jobs from a number of friends. I started doing infant care when I was 18 and am very knowledgable about caring for infants. I have a 9 month old niece and have watched and taken care of her many times. This includes changing diapers, bathing, bed time, nap time, bottle feeding, baby food, formula, play time, giving snacks (fruit and puffs).
