I am the youngest of three girls. I used to tag along with my older sisters when they babysat until I could babysit on my own at age 13. My grandmother ran her own daycare and still does today after 35+ years, and she was our daycare provider too. As I got older, I helped her out with her daycare children. Today, I still help my grandmother with her daycare when I can. I also have 21 cousins and babysat some of them as I was growing up. I have babysat 6 week old infants up to 10 and 11 year olds, and I don't have a preference of age. I am very down to earth, level headed, patient, and don't get rattled easy. I can handle emergency situations very calmly. But, again, I simply love children of all ages.

I started babysitting in my neighborhood at 12 years old. When I started babysitting I typically worked with toddlers and elementary aged children. As I grew older I started working more with infants and middle school children. When I was 18 I moved to NJ where I was a full-time live-in nanny for almost a year. It was an interesting and fantastic experience. I was in charge of transportation, some light education, cleaning and maintaining the household, scheduling, groceries, some light cooking, but most importantly caring and spending time with the kids. I love getting on the floor and playing with the kids. I am a firm believer that kids should be outside as much as possible. I love to play all kinds of sports and games. I love to put arts and crafts activities together and some sort of activity planned everyday. I also have experience with twins/multiples, children with disabilities (ranging from fetal alcohol syndrome to autism and partial deafness) and behavioral issues. I also have 10 years experience with volunteering at a organization who supports children and young teens who are impacted (either infected or affected) by HIV/AIDS. One of the greatest experiences I have ever had and I volunteer year round!

I have a degree in child development and currently am a Daycare Director. In May I will have been in this position for 2 years. I love my job, however there are times I wish that my sole responsibility was to work directly with the children and their family. I have a passion for working with children and helping them master new developmental milestones. I love that being a nanny allows for me to work one on one with each child on a daily basis. Before I became a Daycare Director I was a Special Education Paraprofessional in a Preschool Classroom. I liked how this position allowed for me to work more one on one with a few select children in the classroom. I truly found pride in helping these children progress in their development/behavior. I also have experience nannying for a family with four children. I truly enjoyed working with the younger of the two in different developmental milestones - teaching the four year old her letters, phonics, and beginning to learn how to read. I also worked with their two year old in the beginning stages of becoming potty trained.

I worked in a daycare for 2 & 1/2 years, lived with my aunt for a summer & helped take care of her 5 children. I have baby-sat for many other families in my hometown before I moved to Omaha, NE. I was a daycare assistant for an after school program for a couple months at a Lutheran church/school in Omaha, NE. I have also been a transportation aide for OPS, which required me to make sure the children behaved on the bus and did not distract the driver. I am currently taking care of two children with special needs of ADHD & bi-polar.

I recognized my love for children at a very young age. From age 12-18, I was the main babysitter to call in our small little town. I worked through college in daycares and nannied during the summers. I am currently nannying a three year old boy and a one year old girl, but must move when my lease is up here in Lincoln! I babysit 6 children on a regular basis and have grown such strong bonds to those little humans. I enjoy all aspects of nannying. Teaching, influencing curiosity, watching their personalities develop and helping answer the 'why?' questions as they grow into their teenage years. Some things I enjoy: -Anything creative. -Reading books. -Nature walks. -Walks in general. -Baking and teaching cooking skills. -Playing sports. -Watching movies and eating popcorn before bedtime. -Having miniature dance parties. -Making our own stories and memories. Incorporating fun, humor, creativity, and curiosity for life into every day is important to me, and I hope you will consider be for your position! Have a fantastic day!
