Full-time hours

I began as a regular teenage babysitter. Once I graduated high school, I started college for Child Development specializing in Montessori Infant and Toddler Teaching. During college I was employed as a nanny, as well as an Infant Guide and Assistant Teacher in Montessori infant environments. After finishing the Child Care and Development AAS degree I moved to NC. There, I became the Lead Infant Teacher for an early child development center. I now live in WA. I've worked at a childcare center as the lead infant teacher, as well as the daycare provider at a gym. For the last 8 months I was employed as a part-time nanny for 4 children in Texas. I try to follow the Montessori method as much as possible and focus on the child as a "whole". I believe a child should be challenged and embrace their capabilities as an individual, creating new opportunities everyday. Respect and self-esteem are major factors in my care for children. I feel that my best attributes are my organizational skills and my level of patience.

I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for the children in my care. I absolutely love kids. I am the oldest, one of four. I have pretty much been around kids my whole life. My youngest brother is Autistic, so I have grown to be very patient and learn different ways to communicate with him when needed.
