Jackie C. - Seeking Work in San Antonio

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

Hello! My name is Jackie . I have always had a passion and a love for working with children. When I was in high school I always offered to babysit for the other families in my neighborhood. I, myself, am one of nine children and have grown up around the organized chaos of a large family. In high school I had the opportunity to work as an Elementary Teacher Assistant and knew that I wanted to work with children. After I graduated, I went on to attend Texas State University in San Marcos. While I was working towards my Education degree, I worked side by side with a seasoned teacher while she opened up her own learning facility. I had the opportunity to create curriculum for each one of the classes, order supplies, set up classrooms, and manage the parents night out held on Saturdays. The next step was to complete my student teaching. I worked as a student teacher in a kinder classroom at an school here in San Antonio. I completed my student teaching in April of 2012. I began to substitute teach grades k-8 for the duration of the year at a school. The school I worked with extended an offer to me for their Kinder position, I gladly accepted! While I waited for the school year to begin, I worked as a Nanny through the summer with a family that had three girls. When the school year began, I was the new kinder teacher and helped continue as the families Nanny during school holidays and breaks. This year I decided to take a leave as a teacher and pursue a degree in higher education. Through my years working with children, I see how many children struggle and begin to get left behind. Many students in my class had problems with speech, I had a Speech Pathologist work one on one with my students every week. It improved my students' quality of life and made their time at school much more enjoyable. I want to help students who struggle with similar issues and become a Speech Pathologist myself. I am organized and clean person who works well in chaotic situations. I work well on my feet and am a very energetic person with an active lifestyle. I absolutely love to cook and love interacting with children through music, cooking, sports, and crafts. I would love to opportunity to meet your family and share my passions with you!

I have a cumulative of 10 years of babysitting/nanny experience starting with babysitting local children when I was in high school as well as taking care of my newborn brother while my parents worked. I have a degree in psychology emphasis in child psych. and I also have my EMT certification (emergency health care). I am currently a year away from my BS in emergency medicine. I love children and I would love to help out with your family! EXPERIENCE Nanny Babysitting Exclusive Child Care * June-September 2010 The family consisted of three children all under the age of 5. I watched them during the days while the mother was at work. I made sure to include fun outside activities as well as reading and learning activities. We worked on addition and spelling in fun ways that made the kids more engaged and enthused about what they were learning. I also took care of basic household duties such as cleaning the kitchen, bathrooms, and children’s rooms. I also did the laundry and vacuuming for the house, and made dinners and snacks for the children. * August 2006- December 2009 I was very close knit with this family of five. I looked after the younger two girls. Keri was 12 and Kasey was four. I mostly was over on weekends and evenings to make dinner for them and help them with homework before tucking them in for bed. The rest of the family was very busy and I did not mind driving them around for various school and extracurricular activities. * July 2010- Present This is a new family here in Utah. They have two girls both under the age of five. I will occasionally watch them on evenings after school when the parent’s are at church or work activities. They are a very lively bunch that loves being outside so I will take them to the park or on bike rides. I also cook for them at dinner time and cleaning on occasion. * September 2012 – Present My family experience is probably the best experience that I have in childcare. I am the middle child with five brothers. When my youngest brother was born my step-mother had to go back to work. I became primary care-taker to my infant brother. I learned the ins and outs of taking care of infants and as he grew older I progressed with learning more about babies and then toddlers. I am more than capable of understanding a young child’s needs. I understand non-verbal cues and I also am very skilled in the art of diaper training. Food knowledge is also an essential part of any child’s health. I am very experienced in health foods and know quite a bit about food allergies. Overall, this has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life.

Kateley L. - Seeking Work in San Antonio

Full-time hours

My name is Kateley, I am a 22 year old college student who loves children. I have around eight years experience in sitting, and over a year experience in working where I was an assistant teacher to the preschoolers, as well as bounced around from room to room helping out with all the other age groups. As an assistant teacher, I would come up with fun educational games and activities, play anything from blocks to Play-Doh, read, and assist with snack times. I have worked with children 6 months up to 12 years of age. I have also been the "house manager" for two years for my own home helping to organize and helping out with my younger brother (12) and sister (16), driving them and their friends, to after school activities, helping with homework, chores, and organizing a home binder and behavior/reward system in the home. I am not the type of person who expects children to entertain themselves by sitting them in front of a TV. I much rather be involved with a child rather than letting them watch TV or play games alone. I love playing anything from Barbie dolls to Lego's to Hot Wheels. I also find any excuse to pull out my craft boxes and pull a project together. I am structured and organized and I even set up a homework and chore charts and system in my home for my younger brother and sister, as well as daily schedules. But I also know when to have fun with children. On most of my jobs I bring my craft boxes and I do arts and crafts with the children (always putting out a tarp of course to keep messes minimal), we play board games, go to the park/pool, do homework of course, and have down time. I also always carry my "sitter bag" which has a few essential items.
Alicia G. - Seeking Work in San Antonio

17.14 / hour

Hello my name is Alicia, I am 26 years old and I am currently a full time student at Northwest Vista College. Currently, we are on winter break, but I will be continuing to take online courses this semester to reach my goal in earning my degree in business administration. Most recently, I worked for a family whose two boys I cared for Monday-Friday and I can assure you that there is never a dull moment! Most week days, I would pick up the boys from school, drive home, and we would start homework with a light snack. Of course, Miss. Alicia would have to approve the snack, and then, upon completion…play!! With endless amounts of art supplies (which I love), toys, games of hide-n-seek, and on occasion, so I could get some light house cleaning done, watch a fun/appropriate and approved show or movie. During the summer there was less T.V. and more “let’s do stuff, but outside”, we’d run, play, and learn about everything and anything. Summer was a lot of fun with plenty of swimming, running, biking, taking them to their weekly swim class, as well as, learning our alphabet and numbers. Normally, I worked and cared for till them until their mothers return home and the boys would always, unless instructed differently, bathed, had their dinner prepared, and ready for relax time. More recently, I have been only working part time for the family and am seeking either another part time position or full time position.
