Dear Future Host Family, My name is Elisabet, and I was born july 28th 1990. I live in a small town. I live at home with my dad, my mom, and my younger brother, who is 17 months younger than me. We also have a dog, his name is Oskar, he is a 7 years old poodle. The closest bigger city from Morgongåva is Uppsala. From Morgongåva to Uppsala it is 42 km. The education I took was nursing and medical care. I am a positive, caring, responsible, honest, mature and reliable person. And I am also a very good listener. That is also something my friends say that I am. And something that is very good to have when you working with children, and that I think I have, is patience. Patience I think is great to have when you working with children, because sometimes they don´t always do what you tell them to do. I want to be an au pair for one simple reason, I love children. I want to work with children, because I think you get so much in return when you working with children. When a child smile or laugh, that can make my whole day. I know I want to work with children even after I have been an au pair. And I think being an au pair is great experience to have for future jobs. After being an au pair I have thought about going back to school and study to be a child nurse or a midwife. Activities I like to do with children is all kinds of different things. If the weather is good, I like to be outside. Go to the park or playground. Or just be outside and play in the backyard. Maybe arrange a playdate and have a picnic in the park. Activities I like to do is arts and crafts, my mom have had an arts and crafts group for children for several years, and I help her. So that is something I like to do with your children, if they want to. And I also like to bake cakes and cookies. That is also something I would happily like to do with your children. If you choose me to be your new au pair, you will get an au pair that like to do activities with children. I´m looking forward to explore USA, and meet new people. But my number one priority is gonna be your children. In my spare time, I would like to travel around the U.S., and discover the places I always wanted to go to. Going to the U.S. has been a dream of mine for many years. And some of the cities and places I would like to visit at some point in my life is Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, and The Grand Canyon, and many more places... Maybe it will be under my au pair year? I really hope you enjoyed getting to know me more, and I really hope that I am the one that you and your family choose to become you new au pair, and a part of your family. Hope to hear from you soon! Best regards, Elisabet

I have a little over 17 years of professional child care experience. I also have 10 nieces and nephews, so I'm tested (and tested and re-tested) and resoundingly kid-approved. I have experience caring for children of all ages, from infant to young teens. I am CPR and First Aid certified, with a good head on my shoulders. I am patient, competent, creative, kind, intelligent, and take my occupation to heart. I love to sing, read and do arts and crafts with kids. I enjoy taking field trips with children to museums, aquarium, libraries, and various play spaces. In nicer weather, I prefer to spend as much time as possible outdoors, exploring the parks and any other fresh air venue that NYC has to offer. In the past, I have worked in Park Slope, Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill, Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill, and Red Hook, as well as in Staten Island, and am familiar with all of these neighborhoods and the extracurricular activities and opportunities for enrichment available to children in the area. I have also made regular trips into the city for events and classes, and am comfortable both driving and navigating public transportation.

I have over six years of childcare experience now, four of them being a nanny. Before I decided to become a nanny I worked for two schools being head teacher for both classes after that I worked for a daycare for almost 2 years, My title was daycare provider/assistant. While working at the daycare I decided todo part time nanny jobs and weekend nanny jobs so I had a few short term nanny jobs during that time. After being one on one with children and parents it made me realize being a nanny is what I wanted todo full time. I decided to become a nanny in 2013 and it was the best choice I've ever made. My first real nanny job I worked with 3 children full time, The children were aged 1,2,&3 when I started. I handled everything from cooking breakfast,lunch,dinner & any snacks. I got all the children dressed and fed and had the oldest ready for school by 745, I arrived everyday at 6:50am. While the oldest went to school until 4pm, I had both girls all day. I did activities such as coloring and book time and work time consisted of writing and singing the numbers and letters. I brought the kids to the park and libraries even the beach and pool during the summer. I traveled with the family pretty much everywhere, I also went to parent teacher conference for the oldest. I cared for their dog and was available at any time they needed me! I was apart of their family and I wish to have another job similar to this.
