Abigail O. - Seeking Work in Norfolk

As a young adult I had full custody of my younger sister. Shortly after I married and had two girls of my own. To be home and available to them I attended Old Dominion University where I received a BA of Science in Elementary Education. I taught school for 12 years. I know that the search to find a nanny is a daunting task. Good parents are utterly aware that they must find a nanny that is the most suitable to be in charge of their children. My current position will be ending soon. i have been with this family of four children for 3 years now and will be very sad when it ends. my two previous positions were on Long Island and Connecticut. My daughters were raised and live in Norfolk and I came back to be close to them and my new granddaughter. My name is Abigail and I am 56 years old. I have two daughters, Kelly Marie 28and Sarah Peyton 27. I am a former Middle School Teacher with additional training for the younger child. I also have had a number of interesting jobs which you will see if you get as far as my resume. If we never meet I wish you luck in your search for your perfect Nanny. Sincerely, Abigail

This will be my third summer as a nanny. One year I cared for an 8-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl. Because they were older, I was mostly there to keep the peace in the house, feed them, take them to friends’ houses or the pool, and take them to sports practices. The second year I cared for 3-year-old and 5-year-old boys. I got them up and dressed in the morning, fed them, potty trained the 3 year old, helped the 5-year-old learn how to ride a bike, took them to the pool and helped them swim, took them to swim and golf lessons, took them to museums and to the aquarium, the boys had daily workbooks that I helped them through, and frequently stayed later then the usual time so that the parents could have date nights. Last summer, for about a month, I left my full time nanny job to go to another family’s house to watch 2 out of the three kids while their mom took the third to practice every night. Her husband is military and he was deployed at the time. She needed those 2-3 hours to be able to take the oldest to his football practice and have some time for herself instead of worrying about the two younger kids (ages 2 and 4).

I have been a professional nanny since my first year of college at the age of 18. I have experience with all ages: newborns, twins, triplets, and special needs. I grew up and have built my career in Hampton Roads, which I have continued since graduating from Old Dominion University. Since 2012, I have cared for 9 and 11-year-old boys, who I pick up from school at 3 p.m. daily to assist with homework and after-school activities. I care for infants and toddlers of a few families in the mornings and early afternoons most weeks. Through my diverse experience, I have been reassured of what I love as a nanny. I strive to combine learning specific to age to advance development (academic/social), while having tons of fun. Thank you so much for taking the time to read about me. I look forward to hearing from you.

I was raised in a small town in Missouri, where my mother provided in-home daycare for 13 years. During high school, I assisted my mother, as well as worked in the church daycare. I joined the navy in 2003 and I was honorably discharged in 2007. In 2010, I helped raise 3 wonderful children (twin newborns and a 3-year-old) for 8 months while I was in school for Occupational Science. Once I graduated from college, I wanted to do some traveling and see where my new education would take me. Upon my traveling, I was honored to work for the state of Kansas, as a youth care worker for troubled children. It was one of the more rewarding jobs I have had. Since I have been back in Virginia, I have been a nanny for a wonderful family in Norfolk. I love taking her on play dates with other nannies that I have met and outdoor activities. We go to the libraries a lot, as well as the museums, zoo, and frequent many parks. They will be moving the beginning of August, so I am actively looking for a new family to care for. I am seeking a family that allows these outings throughout the week, it makes the days that much more fun!

I have taught for 20 years of which 7 of those were homeschooling. I have worked in a state licensed daycare facility for over 15 years. Beginning at the age of 11 years old I cared for my younger brother and sister (being 10 yrs. older than they...my mother said I was a natural very young when it came to children). For the past 8 years I have headed up the nursery dept. of my church and my husband and I have taught a 36 hr. parenting class once a year for a few years. Also, having 3 amazing adult children and 9 as amazing grandchildren I have much more hands-on experience to share.

Where do I begin! Like almost every teenaged girl I began babysitting when I was about 14 years old. Prior to that I helped care for my 3 younger siblings. I soon became the day care assistant at the church nursery where I fell in love with infant care. My first daycare job I worked with school aged kids. One day I had to go to the nursery to help out because they were short staffed and the owner saw me on the monitor with the babies and later told me that is where she wanted me to stay. Through the next few years I worked as a substitute teacher for the public schools and was a nanny for my now godson who was first just one of my children I cared for in the nursery at my first job. A few years ago I started working with children with autism and fell in love again. I loved all my boys so much and enjoyed watching them develop and overcome some of their challenges.
