I have been working with children since the young age of 14. At 14 I started to babysit after school. During this time I also volunteered at the in preschool and kindergarten classrooms. By the age of 16, I had obtained a job as an assistant teacher in a kindergarten classroom. I also worked in toddler and preschool classrooms when extra help was needed. It was at this age that I realized caring for children is my passion in life. Since then I have constantly been in a child care setting. I received minors in Education and Psychology at the University of Massachusetts. During this time I worked at numerous child-care centers in the area. While on summer vacations, I continued working at the in numerous classrooms. I assumed the role of a lead preschool teacher during the summer of 2007. I managed a class of 25 students with assistance and had many daily duties. I developed lesson plans across all curriculum areas, implemented lessons, designed arts and crafts projects, encouraged, oversaw, and participated in games/activities, kept the classroom clean, attended professional workshops and completed many other duties each day that I am willing to expand upon. During the summer of 2008 I traveled to an island in Michigan to work at a yacht club. I obtained two jobs during this summer and worked over 55 hours per week. I was the director and the only lifeguard. Due to the relationships I developed with the children members of the yacht club, many families asked me to babysit for them after work. Each day I was able to interact and play with children in the pool. I also implemented different pool games each day. As director I planned fun and educational events each week for children between the ages of 3 and 13. During these events I single handedly cared for, played with, and taught up to 40 children. I recently obtained my Master's degree in Early Childhood Education at the University of Massachusetts. During this program I student taught in a special education preschool public school classroom, a kindergarten public school classroom, and a first grade public school classroom. I could probably write a 50 page paper describing exactly what I accomplished in this program. However, I basically took over the role and duties of the lead teacher in each of these classrooms. Overall, I feel as if this master's degree program paired with my earlier experiences has helped me to develop into a well rounded, confident, lighthearted, respected, enthusiastic, and competent teacher/caregiver/overall person.

My childcare experience ranges from full-time Nanny to everyone’s favorite baby-sitter. I come from a large family. I am number sixteen of thirty-four grandchildren and I have been taking care of younger cousins and siblings as long as I can remember. I started baby-sitting family members and neighbors when I was about 12yrs old. For the past 2 years I have been a nanny for a 12yr old boy with Asperger’s Syndrome. We spent every day after school together. I helped with homework and took him to all after school activities. I helped with house work and making lunches for school. In the summer I spent majority of the day with him, often at the neighborhood swim club. I often had all three brothers after school and in the summers. This past year I received my CrossFit Kid’s certification and started a CrossFit Kid’s program at my gym. A group of 10+ children ranging from ages 5-13 participated in one hour of physical activity. I taught them basic functional movements and incorporated lots of impact loading and vestibular activity. We played team building games and stressed the importance of integrity, hard work, and positive attitudes. Growing up I was involved heavily in competitive cheerleading and gymnastics. I would watch the younger children and coaches children on a daily basis. I also helped coach cheerleading for ages 5-12 during High-School. I was a full-time nanny for two children ages 7 (boy) and 11 (girl) in Ocean City, NJ summer 2007. I was responsible for helping both children with their summer reading and projects each morning. I drove them to their swim and tennis lessons each afternoon and spent countless hours with them on the beach and boardwalk. The well being and safety of the children is always first priority and of greatest importance. I am fully capable of cooking and was responsible for feeding the children 1-2 meals a day. I often had to get them ready for bed and/or put them to bed. I was their nanny for the entire summer and helped baby-sit throughout the following years. I love children and I love to have fun. I am a huge advocate of education, as well as, health and wellness. In my experience as a baby-sitter and nanny I have always ensured the health, safety, and smile of the children.

I started off babysitting for my parents during of course like many teens. I have a younger brother who is 15 and younger sister who is 10 but I started babysitting them at the ages of 5&10 when I was 14. I then went on to babysit for my aunts &cousins' once I started getting paid i considered them my first unofficial job experiences. Although in reality I really started off when I began to volunteer at community centers the last summer before highschool. I would lead small groups and be in charge of them for the day. I would make activities for them and make sure they had their breakfast and lunch. I found a job doing exactly that my junior year of high school, except I had larger groups and I was actually on my own with these groups. That's when I got the real fee to take care of kids all on my own and how to mange time along with activities but not to forget about fun! Because that las the best part of taking care of KIDS! I worked with about 3 community centers before I got my job as a teacher assistant in 2013 for DISD. I currently still woke with them but we are currently on break for the summer. When school starts ill only be available after 4:00pm during weekdays. Also my first actual nanny job for a family I didn't know at all was just last year. lt was a family of 4 kids. They all had medication to take through out the day. Which came with lots of activities and required energy in my part. But after summer ended so did my first nanny job. Now hopefully this is enough to prove kids love me lol but on a serious note.. I was teacher assistant of the year ;) which means grown adults like me too' (; just sayin..

childcare: New Jersey healthfitness center ages 6mo. to 12 years. During this job I recieved many opportunities to babysit for members of the facility. I have always had a few different families to babysit for since I was 13 years old. My nanny experience: New Jersey 1)2007 picking up 2 boys, 5 and 7 from school. Cooking them dinner, helping them with homework and putting them to bed, with lots of laughter and fun made-up games of course! 2)2009-2011 A nanny job that I had to leave about 7 mo. ago due to relocation was my ideal fit. Cared for a little girl (from 2 1/2-4 years old. Includng her potty training,saying goodbye to pacifer with the "binky fairy", ABC's,123's colors,and lots of singing and dancing). 8 year old boy who has Diabetes which I helped him manage:)He loved Star Wars,pokemon, piano,guitar, and he taught me how courageous and smart kids can be! For this family, I cooked, picked up toys, and was responsible for kids lanudry and towels. I was respectfully paid $10+ an hour. Texas: 2011-present, I am working with 2 little girls, ages 2 1/2 and 6. They have very busy busy lives, lots of dirty dished left for me, and lots of laundry and picking up left for me. I am happy to clean, but I would like to be more focused on the children. Communication is harder, and dicipline styles are different. I will only use time- out and moral reasoning and I am not comfortable spanking as a form of punishment.

What are some common responsibilities for nannies in Dallas, OK?

As a parent, it’s natural for you to ask your nanny for a little extra help around the house. However, the boundaries for a nannies duties vary from person to person. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met. This includes things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active, that they have a healthy diet and a sanitary home.

To start, it’s important you set expectations and are aligned on compensation from day one. This includes outlining vacation days, a protocol for sick days, and everything else you would want your own employer to cover. From here, spend time getting to know them. Take your nanny out one of Dallas’s great restaurants, learn about their childhood, and discuss your parenting philosophy. Finally, be sure to resolve conflicts as they arise. Open communication is crucial to ensuring a healthy long-term relationship.
