I’m a nanny because I honestly enjoy being a nanny. I love interacting with children and teaching them.
My past childcare experience I have had experience working with a variety of children ages from my position as a Nanny, as an assistant preschool teacher, and as a fifth grade classroom volunteer. Working as a nanny for many years has taught me to multi-task and think quickly when engaging with children of all ages. As a volunteer I have expanded my knowledge and perspectives of understanding patients as well as their families and successfully organizing activities to meet everyone’s needs. While acting as assistant preschool teacher, I can now effectively plan lessons, notice distinctive temperaments, and see the unique characteristics of each child. Due to my volunteer and work experience, I have a great deal of confidence in my communication skills when interacting with children. I also feel qualified to creatively execute activities and events that are developmentally appropriate. More specifically, I have dealt with challenging behaviors involving anger and anxiety. From this I have learned the need for positive redirection, teaching processing and/or problem solving skills, and using play as an advantage to overcome obstacles.
Additional comments I currently live in Los Angeles and recently graduated in 2013 with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies and in emphasis in child life. I am very active, love cooking and being creative.
