My name is Katrina Johnson, and I am a 37 year old mother of 3 teenagers. When my children were little, I never allowed anyone other than myself to be their caregivers because I couldn't fathom the thought of someone mistreating my loves. Children are precious and should be loved, cared for and treated with the same respect as adults. For me, caring for children while their parents work is not about the money. It is about making sure that the parent knows their child is in the best of hands and will be given the same love and care that they themselves give to their children. I have seen countless videos of children being abused by their caretakers and it absolutely breaks my heart because children are sweet and innocent, and no one, especially a child, should have to endure such treatment. That is the reason that i decided to become a fulltime nanny. If I can save even one child from falling into the hands of a negligent caregiver, then I am happy. I would rather go home completely exhausted from caring for 20 children before I allow one child to be mistreated by someone else who is only in it for the money. While a child is in my care, they won't just be sat in front of a television all day. We will engage in a variety of productive activities such as reading books, coloring, learning the alphabet, learning how to count, and if allowed by the parent, going outside and learning about nature. I also assist in potty training, teaching children the basic know how's in life such as how to button clothes, tie shoes, brush teeth, make their beds and clean up. I take great pride in caring for children so that parents can go to work to provide for their families worry free.

I have always loved children. I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old. Taking care of and teaching children is just something I have always done and always adored. When I was younger I usually took care of children for friends of family or the children in my neighborhood. When I got a bit older, I had I little business in my neighbor with all of the children I took care of. I started being a nanny when I was 16 during the summer for family friends and usually met different families from word of mouth. I have been teaching pre-k on and off for the last 6 years(volunteer and paid jobs). I am current Teaching pre-k at developmental center. I would like to go back to being a full time nanny for the experience of being able to give one-on-one care again. I have also worked with Big brothers and big sisters. I have also worked for a non-profit formerly called Building with books that focused on working with children in the community.

Good Day,
I have been a nanny for 9 years now. It has ranged from infants to early teens. I have always loved teaching and helping children. Kids are such a joy to be around. I get my most creative ideas from children, and I can actually apply it to my career. I have been a daytime nanny as well as a overnight nanny. Children are fun, and very interesting, open-minded individuals and that gives me drive to be a nanny. You learn something new everyday with kids, even when you are the one trying to teach them. I am a kid at heart and I believe that's what you need to babysit. You can be strict at times when needed but you wouldn't want someone that's not going to interact with the child, that's something I would do even on a boring day I would make it fun playing games, going outside to the park, arts and crafts. I love it and would not change it for anyone. I cook, read, clean, and have fun with the kids, I am energetic and reliable.

I’m 19 and looking for a fun exciting and loveable job I also have one of my own who’s 1 he’s an amazing helpful entergetic little one who I adore.
