I’m a nanny because I want to become a nanny because I love caring for young children. One of the many reasons why I want to become a teacher at the Elementary level is because children at that age are in my opinion at the most important stage in their lives. They require encouragement and love to reassure them that they can succeed.
My past childcare experience I love working with children and have just recently received my teaching credential for the Elementary school level. I have worked as a Volunteer Youth Coach for 3 years. In this position I coached 3rd grade girls in such sports as volleyball, basketball, softball, soccer and cheerleading. In addition I also help lead the girls in craft, cooking and even sewing activities. I also volunteered at an after School Day Care. In this position I watched over students grades 1st through 5th at an after school daycare. My responsibilities included leading in crafts, games and also assisting students with questions and homework at study hall. As well, I have worked as a teachers aide and substitute teacher at various elementary schools. Overall I love working with children and love working one on one with families. I have worked for a few families as both a part time and full-time nanny and really enjoyed all of my experiences.
Additional comments My childcare style revolves around the idea that every child is unique and special. No one likes to hear that they are just like every one else, because it's simply not true. Each child has different interests and goals and I try to be flexible with each child for this reason. I try to offer each child loving kindness and the support they need to feel confident in their abilities while still being able to draw the line and discipline them when necessary.
