Full-Time Available Nanny Leah in Seattle, WA

23.00/hr
A little bit about me…Hello! My name is Leah Nordhausen. I am 20 years old and have over five years of various nannying experience. I also consistently volunteered for over two years two at Union Gospel Mission (UGM) with various children who had behavioral, emotional, and mental disabilities, and worked internationally with special need students. Throughout my years of experience I have had unique opportunities to teach, love, maintain boundaries, create curriculum, engage special need students with creative teaching methods, and see students flourish under my care. For the past two years I have been living and teaching in Burundi, East Africa. I taught and created unique multi-faceted curriculum for two children with special needs. I will be attending Seattle Pacific University this fall to pursue my BA in Special Education. I love engaging with children, cooking, baking, creating arts/crafts activities, and much more! I am excited to get to know you and serve you and your family as best I can!
