My name is Natcha. I am Thai, and 27-year-old. I'm currently a college student, studying in New York. I have lots of experiences with children of all ages. I used to take care of toddlers before I came to the US. I came here as an Au Pair and I used to look after 4 children; 2 boys and 2 girls; aged 7, 8, 13, and 17. My responsibilities were doing their laundry, driving them to different activities, cooking, entertaining them, doing art work, helping them do their homework, reading stories to them, doing some light housekeeping, and running some family errands. My second year in the states I was a live in nanny for a 13-year-old girl. I mostly cooked, drove, did laundry, ran some errands, and took care of her throughout the day. The current family that I'm working for has 2 boys who are 1 and 4 years-old. I've been working for them since the baby was 3 months old. My responsibilities are providing meals, getting the boy ready for school, driving, creating activities for after school, and taking care of the baby. As much as I love my current job and the kids I'm taking care of, I am moving to Queens, NY. So unfortunately I can no longer work for them. However, I am also very excited to work for a new family. Getting to know new people is always a fun experience so I am looking forward to our first meeting! (I've also worked as an on-call babysitter for many families in the Fairfield county area.)

I worked as a teacher for 15 years and I found that working with them gives you challenge everyday. Giving children activities that will help them develop their potential is the challenge that I love to experience with them. I worked with children for so long and I found out that each one of them are different and it's up to us (parents/caregivers) to be creative and patient to respond to these challenges to help them become a better person.
