Hourly rate17.14 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I've been living in Rye, NY since October 2013 where I take care of 4 boys as au pair. Before moving to NY, I used to take care of 8 kids (7 girls and 1 boy) in Texas. I love to expend time on outside activities and sports and also I am very artistic. I enjoy painting, drawing, dancing, singing, playing. Everything that I can do to make the children happy and make sure they are learning good manners. Well, since I was very young, I take care of my brothers as I am the oldest daughter. I used to take care of them while my mom was working. I also worked for a woman I met in my drama club. I took care of her daughter named Gabriela. She was 9 at the time and I helped her with her homework, played games, read great books, cooked her meals, swam with her, played the clarinet with her, studied music and literature. Besides all that, we watched TV, listened to music and went to the movies. I worked with this girl for a year.

I have been babysitting pretty much since I was about 10 years old. I have always been responsible, even at a very young age. I took a nanny position for a family in Mobile, Alabama, when I was 20 years old. I intended on staying with them for a year, but ended up staying with them for almost 5 years. I became one of the family, and grew to love them as my own family. My job with them was a lot of carpooling and driving kids, but I also helped manage their household and the children's activities. It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and I still keep in very close contact with the family to this day. I have been a nanny in the northeast for 4 years, gaining more nanny experiences in a different part of the country!
