I’m a nanny because I have chosen to pursue a career as a professional nanny as a grass roots opportunity to promote the educational development of the whole child in a positive and structured environment, while fostering a passion for lifelong learning. I feel an authentic and intrinsic motivation to assist a parent's life long goal of shaping a child's mind and establish lifelong habits, such as manners and organizational skills. This will aid them in succeeding as adults by providing help to the parents through a necessary service that allows them to focus on their jobs and other duties, comforted that their children are safe and happy at home.
My past childcare experience My child experience is both extensive and diverse. First and foremost I am a proud father of three amazing children. My wife and I are raising two daughters Emma (age 10), who has Aspersers and Sensory Processing Disorder, Madelyn (age 6) and Samuel (age 2). Currently, I am an accomplished teacher where I have made a positive impact on my student's social development and demonstrated tremendous gains in my student's academic proficiency. Prior to my current position, I successfully student taught at the third grade level and interned in a first grade classroom. While working towards my Elementary Education degree, I honed my craft as a professional educator working as a substitute teacher for many years where I have worked with children from grades K-12 from various socioeconomic communities. This past summer, I worked at a children's center for youths living with emotional impairments as well as cognitive impairments but more importantly served as a source of hope, care, and treatment to Michigan's abused, neglected, and at-risk children. Prior to my experience as a Professional Educator, I was the Assistant Camp Director where I was able to expertly enrich the lives of countless individuals ranging from ages six through twelve years old. In addition I have worked in numerous camp settings as an Outdoor Education Instructor, Camp Counselor and Assistant Program Director for thousands of campers ages five through seventeen years old. I have also worked as a counselor at a non-profit therapy and wellness center which served children with orthopedic, speech, hearing, and vision disabilities. Lastly, I held the position of the Director of Extended Day in which I oversaw the care of many children from the first grade through the eighth grade.
