Iddie B. - Seeking Work in Houston

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

I worked with the same family for a period of 3 years until their nanny needs changed. The family will give me great reference. I am presently with a family of 4, the family is downsizing their need for a nanny. I have been with this family for approximately 8 months. This job is more of a Mother's helper, since the Mom is a stay at home Mother, and hands-on Mother. I regretably will be leaving as her full time nanny by the end of this month (April 30, 2008). With the last two families in which I have worked, are very loving and highly respectable families. I adore them and their children. I believe children must be lifted up and treated well, since they are our future; they are most important. I enjoy taking children to the park, movies, children museum, etc. We enjoy reading time, play time, story telling times, physical times (such as walking, running with exercise plans). All activities are age appropriate. I am also available for date nights and over night stays upon request. I also cared for a 12 month old toddler picking him up from daycare, including activities of feeding, bathing and bed time stories until parents return from medical center.

I'm a 27 year old mother of two, ages 4 and 2. I have a passion for teaching and molding young children! From 2010 to 2012, I worked as a stay at home mom which taught me great time management skills when it comes to tidying up the house, running errands and giving the children the attention they need. I had several friends who had a hard time finding a committed and reliable caregiver for their children, so I decided to join the business. Since 2012, I worked and managed curriculum driven childcare facilities. My daily routine was that of an elementary school teacher. I taught core subjects as well as art, spanish, gardening, music/movement and gym. I spent 6 months in a pre-k classroom where I implimented a kindergarten readiness program. During this time, I also had the opportunity to work with several special needs children. With the help of their parents, I was able to follow through with what the kids were learning in therapy to further their development. As a parent, I understand the stress that comes along with finding a trustworthy and accountable caregiver this day and age. I am active and I live a pretty healthy life style. I enjoy adventures to the library and crafting to pass the time. I don't have a problem getting on a child's level to make them and their time with me more comfortable. When it all boils down with me, you'll get a fun, dedicated and driven person to protect and teach your child. If given the opportunity, I would love to help and make difference with your family!

Childcare has been a constant of my life. My experience began as the eldest child in my family and having to care for my younger sister and cousins. I have been teaching Sunday School for three years and volunteered as a teacher's aid for four years prior. I have worked as a nanny for a total of three years and in that time I have cared for children of widely varying ages, as well as health and behavior conditions.

Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

Since I was about 10 years old family, friends, and neighbors have entrusted me with safety and well being of their children while they went away on vacations, had date nights, and when they had to work late nights and couldn't make it home to their children. I've also assisted single working moms when the load became too much for them to handle alone and expectant moms in their third and fourth trimesters who were too far along to do housework and take care of the children they already have without complications. Some of my many duties includes preparing formula bottles, feeding infants, bathing infants and toddlers, making sure children have educational and outdoor activities, making sure that children are fed dinner (prepared by parent or myself) and in bed by a certain time. If the children were school age I was to assist them with homework. Some of my other duties included household chores such as preparing food, cleaning of all areas of the home, and laundry.

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.
