Jennifer  O. - Seeking Work in New York City

Hourly rate22.85 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I have work as a Head Preschool Teacher for 5 yrs. Though I have worked with children from infancy to adolescence through babysitting and camp counseling, I currently work in an inter-grated classroom where have my children have a variety of physical, emotional, and mental delays. The other children in my class room are developing at a typical rate for their age. The hope is that the children who need that extra time and attention can receive it not only through their teachers but also their peers who act as models. There is nothing more rewarding then watching one child help another on their own. It teaches the children with special needs that they are just as capable as any other child and keeps them determined. On the same token it teachers the other children compassion and exceptence towards those who may be a little different then they are or need to learn things in a different way. I also worked in a self contained classroom for almost two years and with children with severe disabilities and though i love being in the classroom I am now i have to say that was the most rewarding job Ive ever had. I have very strong behavior management skills and serve as a member on the behavior committee at my current job, as a team we sit down with a classroom who may be struggling with a child whom is acting it. We create different strategies to help not only the classroom but the child in crisis. It is extremely rewarding to help a child learn to cope on their own and find ways not help them communicate their anger, sadness, or frustration with more positive outlets. Children are all different and that is what makes each one so special. Earning a child's trust can be difficult whether they are the happiest child in the world or are struggling with some internal issues or have some special needs which require special attention. Once you earn that trust though it's amazing how quickly that bond can form between a care giver and a child. With my background I believe in making every experience not only fun but educational. I believe that you can learn from every day activities such as taking a walk and observing your surroundings and truly having a dialogue about it. Learning can be fun and I always try and make sure the children/child in my care in getting the most out of each day we spend together.

I started babysitting for friends and family members from a very young age. I have frequently looked after two boys aged 8 and 6 from the time they were 5 and 3 respectively. I would fetch the boys from school and daycare. Once we were home I would prepare them a snack then help the eldest with homework. There after we would play and watch some television. I would make them their dinner, give them a bath and get them to bed. Next I looked after two girls from the ages of 8 and 5 until 11 and 8 respectively. I would look after the girls during the school holidays so the day would begin at 8am; I would arrive at the house, give them breakfast and help them get dressed for the day. We would mostly play games, go to the park or the swimming pool. At times we would read, do arts and crafts. I would prepare and give them their meals for the rest of the day and get them into bed by 8pm. I then looked after another pair of sibling boys aged 11 who were special needs. I could not cope and had no experience so I decided to resign from this job.It was a full-time live in position so I would be up at 6:30 am get them dressed, made them breakfast, we would go for a walk then return home and either do some arts and crafts/play games on the computer or broad games. We did a lot of reading, drawing and writing. During the day I would prepare their meals and get them to bed by 7pm.
Nari G. - Seeking Work in New York City

Hourly rate12.54 / hour

I have all of the necessary experience, having spent my four years of college as a nanny to two young girls who I grew to love as my own family. I have also spent multiple years with various families in NYC and London. I am an extremely responsible, outgoing, and organized individual who loves children and I have grown up surrounded by infants. My undergrad studies were that of pre-med and I graduated with a degree in biology having the intention to go to medical school with a specialty in pediatrics so all of my internships were spent in the nursery or pediatric wards of hospitals where I was constantly caring for not only infants but children of all ages. After applying and getting into medical school, I decided to take some time to live life and I moved to NYC. I am more than comfortable with the responsibilities of getting the kids ready in the morning, cooking for them, getting them ready for bed and whatever else is needed. I am absolutely thrilled with the tasks of taking the children on outings to the park, museums, etc., and the idea of putting on shows and getting creative at home is right up my alley as I have grown up with heavy training in dance and musical theater at one point teaching dance myself. I still teach private ballet lessons to some family friend's children here in the city when requested. My father is a physician and so I feel that patience and my passion for caregiving is in my blood. I can promise you that I am an extremely responsible and positive individual who loves kids and hopes to one day have children of my own. I know that a face to face interview will strongly prove my candidacy.
