I’m a nanny because I want to keep working as nanny because I had a great time as au pair in USA and it helps me to develop my English and Educator skills. Also, since I've been babysitting so long, I know how good and sometimes challenge is this job, and I love it!! Spank isn't acceptable. Time out, warning, and action-consequence (for e.g.:if the kid do not have a good behavior, s/he can not play with specif toys ) Behavior/education methods must be discussed with parents!!
My past childcare experience Before working for the past 10 months for a big family in Aurora (2,8,13,16),I worked as an Au Pair for this lovely family from January 2009 to September 2010 and I got back to work for them from December(2013)to April (2014), it means I have over two years experience spending 45h/week taking care of two kids (and now a 18 months baby too) and it has been pretty nice. When I started it kids were 3 and 5, now they are 8 and 9 and the toddler is now my major responsibility. I had a experience in Colorado babysitting a one month baby during 2 months, a Sensory Processing Disorder boy and 2 months experience being an 13 months old boy nanny back in 2010. In Brazil I used to be a babysitter since I was 12, especially for the kids of the Church I used to go and also neighbors and families/friends. My experience goes from newborns to teenagers. I worked with recreation to a kids' birthday place and on my last year of College (2011) I was a language teacher teaching kindergartners (3-5 years old) and Middle School students (9-15 years old). In 2012 and 2013 I was a Spanish and English teacher for a language school and taught students from 9 to 65 hears old. I got my degree in Literature, Language and Education, it helps me to have more experience with kids and develop my skills with them, since I'm planning on keep being a teacher when I get back to Brazil.
Additional comments References are available on request. CPR classes and Au pair training provided when I was an au pair. I love snowboarding, hiking, swimming and I like to have fun with kids and teens, which makes things easier because I can be a fun company to be around. I really would like to study in USA, so we can talk about a student visa/nanny position. Graduated in Education.
