I’m a nanny because I love children and have greatly enjoyed working for the families I have in the past. I have always had a passion for the hustle, excitement, challenge, and often chaotic nature of children and what it takes to support their healthy development. I am flexible!
My past childcare experience I have a great deal of experience in working with and caring for children and I am the middle child of five in my own family! I am a 31-year-old Master's graduate from UIC in School Social Work (2007) (the rest of my family is in the nursing field). I have worked in the school system for the past 5 years and I am looking to provide nanny or babysitting services to a loving family. I absolutely love and adore children and have always connected with them naturally. I have taken care of infants and children of all ages, including children with behavior challenges and/or special needs, and I have done overnights (multiple days too) for several families. I have a total of 5 years experience in the school setting working with children presenting a variety of needs, from moderate to severe. For the past two years I worked at a school, and prior to that I worked at an alternative school for adolescents and teens with anxiety and/or emotional disorders. I completed my internship at an elementary school where I worked with special education students as well as regular education students. I have worked closely with two specific families through the years and continue to keep in touch with them! They would be happy to provide references for me. I would be delighted to talk further if you are interested and/or if my qualifications meet what you are looking for.
Additional comments I enjoy doing lots of different activities with children whether for learning purposes, social/behavior skills or just to have fun. Also, as a nanny, I see my role as being whatever it is you need when you need it--whether its running errands one day, doing laundry, or accompanying the family to various activities in order to provide an extra set of hands with the kids!
