Below is a little about me: I have 2 B.A.'s and a Masters in Education. Professionally, I have devoted myself to working with children. For the past 9 years I have been working as a school principal and am currently taking a break from working in a school for the next 2 years to decide the next direction I want to go with my career. I have been taking care of children and teaching children for over 15 years. I love interacting with kids. I enjoy playing with them, reading them stories, doing arts and crafts and playing games. I love playing sports! I have 6 nieces and nephews and at times have taken care of all six together. I am friendly, organized, responsible and young at heart. I am energetic and fun loving, respected by children and know how to properly care for children. I greatly look forward to hearing from you.

My past childcare experience was the summer of 2012 for family of 4. My duties were to plan summer activities for the children, take them to play dates/birthday parties, sporting activities, and to prepare meals for them while under my care. This was actually my second time working with this family. I worked with this family about four years prior during college as an after school nanny as well.
