Beginning in my teens, I started babysitting for various families in my rural community. In my early 20’s I became a mother's helper to two different large families. One family had multiples from newborn up to age five. The other family had a baby up to an eleven year old. It certainly was a stretching experience for me as I came from a small family. I did some daycare work back in WI in the mid 1990’s as well as in FL for a private daycare. I have also been a Kindergarten teacher in a private Christian school in FL as well as a dually certified substitute here in the Greenville area for the last five years. I finished my degree at Bob Jones University with a certification in Elementary Education in 2006 and then went on to receive my second certification in Early Childhood from the University of Phoenix in 2010. I have been certified in infant/regular CPR as well as First Aide and would be willing to do so again. I have also had numerous background checks, the last being in February of this year. While attending BJU I was able to work with a wonderful family by the name of Gentry from August 2003-July 2004. Mary works in an executive position at (last I knew anyway) and Ted is an attorney. They have three great children who really were a joy to work with! The children attend Schools. I worked approximately a school year with them; I attended classes and then was at their home in time to pick them up from school, did the children’s laundry and general pickup (they had a housekeeper), made sure homework was done, piano practice, character training, chauffeured them to their private lessons/games, played indoor and outdoor games with them, created and prepared their suppers, baked with them, enjoyed crafts together, read to them, laughed together, and generally just loved being with them. Dear, sweet children! Mary, later for a time, ended up staying home and so I was no longer needed but we all ended with a great rapport. The last family I worked with as a nanny is a professional couple in town. Mary works for her dad's business and Richard works for his brother in law's business. I had the charge of their newborn twins from approximately three months old until about a year. The family was made aware, right from the beginning, of my need to finish my student teaching and that I would have to quit when I did and they were also great to work for! I was with this family from March 2005 to January 2006. What a wonderful experience to help rear and nurture newborn babies and to see their different stages of development! I am a believer of having babies on a schedule, as were they. The family wanted me to read various books on child growth and development as well as how to schedule, to help them get the twins into a routine. One of the books was "Secrets Of The Baby Whisperer" by Tracy Hogg and also BabyWise by the Ezzo's. Both books were very beneficial to someone who has never been married and has no children of her own. I followed a schedule with the babies and boy, what a difference that made! The babies, even though they were so young, got used to this schedule and they then "knew" what to expect. I remember one day one of the babies, at about 10 months, crying by the door at about 9 a.m. I had gotten off schedule and they knew that it was our stroller time:) I would feed, hold, talk to, read to, play with, sing to, teach character to, and also teach sign language (babies can sign before they can talk). We focused on having classical music playing on and off throughout the day as babies become smarter thru this technique (Mozart Effect), I also did general pickup and the babies' laundry. They too had cleaning people come in to do the more heavy duty cleaning. It was a hard time to leave "my babies" after that year and I cried but I knew I had to move on to my next goal in life of finishing my degree. I finished my degree thirteen years after "I was supposed to". I am 39 years old, never married but in a new long distance relationship. He is originally from SC and may move back this way. Even though I am now a dually certified teacher, I would love to make a career change back into being a nanny for several reasons. I still enjoy teaching but for the last five years I have been a substitute and with the economy the way it's been, there have not been a myriad of opportunities for me to receive a full time teaching position. I would love to marry someday and have my own children, but for now, I would love to again take care of someone else’s babies/children! I am also a tutor and if you have a need for that, I would be willing to help you out in those areas as well. I’ve helped over seventy, five year olds to read using a very special phonics program. Please feel welcome to give me a call regarding your childcare needs. I may also be willing to consider a different price for occasional babysitting. Thanks for this opportunity, Michelle

I have cared for children over a span of years. I mostly babysit while in college but I love children so much that I am willing to work part-time with them. I currently work full-time at a pediatricians office. I graduated with a Minor in Education from Clemson University. I love caring for children. I also worked as the child care provider at Gold's Gym while attending Clemson. I worked 6 days a week and would watch up to 20 children at a time. Ages ranged from infant to 10 years old. I was always able to handle each child individually while maintaining a safe and fun nursery stay. I have also baby sat steadily for two families. Both had two children and each were under the age of 5. The families that I babysat for asked me to babysit after I left the Gold's Gym job. They were amazed at how I managed that many children. To me, it was fun. Sometimes, challenging but mostly fun. It was a learning experience and I loved getting to know each and every one of them. I've also worked with special needs children while in high school and during my full-time job in Clemson as an assistant property manager. I am very patient and comfortable in any situation and confident that the children will be too. I am able to not only have fun but to provide a learning experience as well. I am able to use what I learned while gaining my minor in education. Children take to me easily as well as, I to them. :)

I love children of all ages and have worked with them my whole life. Around age 14 I started to frequently babysit and began to attend a local church and within a year I jumped right into children's ministries. I worked with "Cubbies" (a children's program for 2-5 year olds) for the 4 years I attended high school; I taught the K5-2nd grade sunday school class from my Sr. year of high school until my Sr. year of college, and helped with teen ministries as well. I volunteered at Camps in the summer time for 2 of my college summers working with all age groups and families. In China, my husband and I frequently watched a fellow teacher's daughter (1 1/2 yrs old) and newborn baby boy. As you can tell, I love children and have much experience with them.
