Since I was in junior high school, I have been babysitting for neighbors, family friends, and other families I met along the way, some of which were weekly engagements and others that were by an on-call basis. While in high school and college, I spent a majority of my summers babysitting and nannying, often filling my schedule with various childcare engagements five to seven times per week. I am a very fun-loving and outgoing babysitter, I am a natural with kids, and I have lots of experience. I've always gone with the flow depending on an individual family's needs and I am completely at ease with a spontaneous plan. In my past childcare experiences, I've enjoyed planning different activities, such as arts and crafts projects, playing outdoors, board games, reading stories, baking cookies, swimming, preparing meals, bathing and preparing children for bedtime, or even going on various outings like to the bookstore or hanging out at a neighborhood playground. I have provided transportation for children to and from camps, birthday parties, and nursery schools. Furthermore, I am a trained singer and piano player and love sharing music with kids. I currently have a full private practice of students who I teach private lessons to starting at 3 pm into the later evening on weekdays and on the weekends, but my schedule is very flexible in the mornings and early afternoons Monday through Friday. I believe it's really great to keep the scenery changing and to constantly provide the opportunity for new experiences or growth. Even so, I try to follow a child's individual rhythm and gauge when more relaxing, downtime is necessary. Furthermore, I am bright, college-educated (I graduated with honors from the University of Southern California), and I come from a wonderfully supportive family. Consequently, I am well acquainted with what is a loving and caring home environment that values a child's ideas, insights, and creativity. And I would be thrilled to share this perspective with the children I care for.

I have been babysitting since I was 11 years old. I was a counselor at a daycamp for children with learning disabilities and developmental disorders for six years. I have a Bachelors degree in Child and Family Psychology and a Masters degree in K-12 Special Education. I worked at a daycare for three years taking care of infants through school-age children. I also taught small groups of preschool aged children how to read and start adding and subtracting. I have been a special-education teacher for the past six years in a public elementary school. I have taught grades kindergarten through fourth grade. My students have disabilities across the gamut ranging from mild to severe. These disabilities include Learning Disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, mild to severe Autism, Language Imapirments, Emotional Disturbance, and ADHD. I have taught all academic areas, social and emotional skills, behavior shaping, and life skills. I am great at incorporating academic and developmental skills into every day activities and making them engaging! I will bring my two kids who make great playmates! I would bring all their food. I look forward to talking with you about how I can serve your family!

With over a decade of experience nannying and babysitting for a range of ages from birth through the teenage years, as well as being a member of the International Nanny Association; I know that attention and dedication is so important to a young infant, toddler, and preschooler. With such extensive experience with newborns and up, I am a very adaptable and flexible person. Potty training, sick kids, preschool activities, are all old hat. I am also Healthcare Provider CPR/AED certified. I have also taken continuing education courses through Texas A&M AgriLife Extension on infant and toddler development, infant-preschool nutrition, and on infant and toddler milestones, as well. Recently, I have been nannying full time for a wonderful 16 month old little boy. I have been with him since he was 7 months old. However, his father received a job offer in Minneapolis. So, my time with him is at an end. It has been wonderful helping him grow and develop from a little baby to the toddler that he is today. Currently, on the weekends, I help at conferences. This past weekend was wonderful as I was taking care of a 4 week old preemie and a 2 month old. I love being with children at their earliest stages. Tidying the kitchen and doing the baby/children's laundry during downtime comes naturally to me. Meal prep, sleep training, sick little ones, bathing, and developmental activities are all things I'm well versed in.

I have cared for babies and children ages newborn to sixteen. I am currently a nanny for a family with three boys between the ages of five and eleven. (They will be moving out-of-state at the end of the summer.) I help plan games and activities and provide assistance with homework assignments and speech practice. I run errands approximately once a week, and I make lunches, do dishes, and do laundry for the family. I also drive the boys to and from school and other activities. Some of the activities we do are reading, art projects, science experiments, hiking, having picnics, going to the park, and playing board games. Prior to my current job, I was a live-in mother's helper for a family with five children, ages newborn to 7 years. (The youngest was born during my time there.) My duties included feeding and clothing the kids, helping with homework and bedtime routines, and doing light household tasks such as dishes and vacuuming. During my university years (2008-2012), I helped babysit for this same family a few hours per week, primarily as a mother's helper. I have babysat for babies and children of all ages since I was 12. I have also tutored first and second grade students in Math and Reading and have completed 15 credit hours of Education-related coursework.

I have 13 years experience working as a nanny. I have also worked 5 years in a preschool day care center working as a teacher and toddler's coordinator, and 18 years experience working as a babysitter. My past childcare experience is always unforgettable, because when I work with children is so much fun and emotional. I give everything of me, I love them and they love me.You become part of their life, you share everything with them from their special favorite toy, there hugs, laughs, tears and all those special moments we share together. Is like having a second mom and a best friend at the same time for them. I enjoy indoor and outdoor activities with children, arts & crafts, table activities, reading books, singing songs, dancing, taking walks, going to the park, zoo, museum, learning activities, teaching them spanish if the parents are interested, and many other fun activities. I get so attach to children and they get so attach to me, that the only downside and sad part of being a nanny is when your services is no longer required because the kids are grown up or in school fulltime and you have to say goodbye, But I always try to think on the other side there is always a new family out there that needs my love and care and I will also become part of their beautiful family.

I have been babysitting my younger brother, sister, and cousins since I was eleven and when I turned 13 I branched out and started babysitting for families in my neighborhood and family friends. Also from the ages twelve to fifteen I helped in my church's nursery. The first nanny job I got I was sixteen and it was to watch a twelve year old boy and an eight year old girl over Summer and drive them to the activities they were involved in or wanted to go to. That same year during the school year I was a nanny for a five year old girl and a six year old boy, I picked them up from school, made them dinner, helped with homework, and got ready for bed. The next nanny job I had was my senior year of high school when I was seventeen and it was to take care of a five year old boy and one year old girl. The parents worked nights so I did meal prep and put them to bed at night, then in the morning I fed them breakfast, got the boy ready for school then took him, and then played with the little girl until one of the parents got home. During these times I was still babysitting for other families on weekends. That Summer, right before I went to college, I worked as a lifeguard and swim teacher for two country clubs. Currently I am working for a before and after school program run by my local school district and have been working there since September 2015. There I work as a caretaker and an aid for two twin, seven year old boys.
