I’m a nanny because Looking back, the position I valued the most and was happiest doing was being a nanny. I enjoyed being part of a family and having a direct impact on both the child's life and the family's daily operation. Growing up, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and in-and-out of hospitals. Being the oldest in the household, I had to take on many roles while still caring for my siblings, in order to maintain a stable house. With this being said, I understand what it takes to be effective and consistent in many different environments.
My past childcare experience While I have worked with children for over 10years, the past 6years I've worked mostly with children with disabilities, mainly children with ASD, and loved every minute of it. I have had the opportunity to work in many various settings: home therapy, clinical therapy, being a nanny, babysitting, swim lessons, and teaching in a classroom. I have extensive training in children with special needs, including but not limited to Autism, Aspergers, ADD/ADHD, ODD. I have experience with children ranging from newborn to 16years old and adults with special needs. I have cared for twin newborns, as well as, twin toddlers. However, the majority of my experience is with children ages 3-8. I am currently teaching at a school for children with emotionally, behavioral and learning disabilities; my class ranges from ages 3-8.
Additional comments I am currently working towards my Masters in Education; my program is completely online, so it does not affect my work availability. I am excellent at multitasking, being organized, prioritizing and being efficient. Because of these qualities, I was able to earn my B.S. in Psychology within 4years, while working 35-40 hours per week and graduate with a 3.89.
