I’m a nanny because I love working with children and they always really like me. I have a great way of getting on a child's level and making them feel comfortable around me. I feel like with all of my experience and education in childcare, I have a lot to offer a family. I feel that I can provide more than just "babysitting" - I would love to do art projects, play games that teach learning fundamentals, read books and help tutor with homework. I have lots of fun home-made educational games that I have made in school and at work. I would love to be able to share some of these things with someone!
My past childcare experience My first school job was at the Osseo School District - I worked at an elementary school in a Special Ed. classroom with a student who had Autism. I have now worked for the School District for almost four years now. I worked three years at an Elementary school on their playground and in a Special Ed. classroom. I also tutored at a middle school and worked with a Special Ed. student at a high school. I also worked at their summer school program in a Special Ed. classroom. I have been a substitute at numerous schools. I also worked for 2 years in their summer school program as a job coach for Special Ed. students that were transitioning from high school to the work world. Growing up I did a lot of baby-sitting for my cousins and nieces/nephews. Recently, I have been babysitting for my friends. While attending college, I had begun with a Major in Child Development and took a lot of classes that have really been quite beneficial in my actual experience working with children. I currently hold a 3.83 GPA and can provide proof of the Child Development classes I have completed.
Additional comments I have a really laid-back demeanor, am very honest, good at communicating, and have so much experience working with children. I always bonded with them so much and really miss being able to teach children things and yet learn from them at the same time.
Level of education Some College but Non-Graduate
