I’m a nanny because I like helping children conceive and acheive their goals, whether it is riding a bike, tying their shoes or getting an A in math. I like feeling invested in their success.
My past childcare experience I have been in child development for the past 20 years. I started out as an assistant teacher in a preschool setting, learning everything I could about how children learn, think and behave under different circumstances. I feel I developed very good communication skills and how to balance a child's day with both learning, fun, discipline/routines and teachable moments. From preschool, I went to work for an extended family as their nanny for the children ranging in age from newborn to 14 years old, including a child with Down Syndrome (cognitive impairment.) While I throughly emjoyed this experience, I found that I wanted to continue my education. I worked full time as a nanny and earned a degree in elementary education in the evening. I have been working for the past 8 years in an elementary school as a reading teacher, but would like to go back to working with children outside the school setting.
