I’m a nanny because Hello, My name is Lakeisha . Im a 24 year old African American, college graduate. I am heavily into the arts as well as education. I recently started a small production company, geared towards educational theatre and performances for youth. I’m originally from Houston, Texas. Below I have pasted my resume (references and background check available upon request) but basically, Im a fun, out going, loving person who loves children and watching them grow. I have been in the professional business of nannying for about 5 years and nonprofessional babysitting since I can remember. My goal is to not only take care of my duties as facilitator, but light housework, laundry, meal preparation, these are things I feel come along with the territory. I love to dance, sing, play dress-up, go on pretend adventures (and real ones too, for the older kids ;) ) I believe I’m just an all around good person and i know i would be a wonderful addition to the right family.
