A little bit about me…I'm a highly educated woman of Italian origins. I am perfectly tri-lingual (Italian, French, English) and have working knowledge of Spanish, beginner German and Arabic. I have taken care of children starting from my younger siblings, throughout high-school, college and more later. During a stretch of 10 years in Italy I have volunteered with very sick children at Gaslini Hospital, Genoa (a famous children international hospital for cancer) and before that I have raised two children of my own. I can care for a house in all details and I have an extensive culinary experience. I am know for my high hygienic standards and knowledge of medicine and remedies. I get involved and enjoy sharing in the children's activities whether is play, craft projects or homework. I am a P/T professor and an artist and I am now seeking a P/T nanny job because I truly enjoy children. I have an immaculate driving license and long experience driving all kinds of vehicles.
Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…Aside from raising my two healthy, smart and successful children (38 and 25), I have baby sat since age 16. I also have volunteered working with children with serious, terminal illnesses (as leukemia and Neuroblastomas (brain cancer) at Gaslini Hospital in Genoa, Italy. A renowned, intrnational children hospital. I have also cared for special needs children, from learning disabilities (HDAD, ADD, Dislexia) to more serious mental illnesses (Psychosis and Autism). I am caring, cautious and aware of potential dangers, especially children younger than 5y.o. can get into. I am willing to take any First Aid and CPR certifications. I do know a lot about nutrition, prevention, hygiene and armless, traditional home remedies and traditional Homepathy, that often solve many common afflictions without having damaging collateral effects...
My experience with special needs children…See above section where I got into details...
Activities I enjoy doing with children…I m also an artist -- went to art school and Beaux Arts Academies in Italy. I enjoy doing arts and crafts projects and teach them to prepare healthy food. I also enjoy outdoors, from walking in nature, playing sports, swimming (I'm a good swimmer and have taught swimming to adults and children alike), I'm a horse rider and trainer from my teen years, I also love tennis and all ball playing sports. I like to read to children and tell them real life, enlightening stories. I'm a spiritual person but do not have any specific religious affiliations. I like buddhism, which I studied at length in college and beyond. It teaches "ethics" and respect for the other. I also enjoy skiing and used to be a real pro... Have practiced also mountain climbing, I still practice yoga, mainly and swimming in my own time.
The most important part about being a nanny…Being caring, protecting, careful and a good, solid role model for their present and future reference.
My favourite nanny moment…When they tell me back very funny things I have done or said. Adventurous fun experiences together but especially when kids (and dogs...) remember me from ages past gone...
