Full-Time Available Nanny Rebecca in Dallas, TX

18.00/hr
A little bit about me…I have lots of experience in childcare. Not only did I grow up constantly babysitting, but after graduating college I taught fifth and second grades. I am currently working as a toddler teacher at a daycare (and have undergone CPR and first aid training). Unfortunately, the daycare I am working almost an hour commute twice a day and the pay does not quite cover my daily travel, rent and expenses, so I am seeking new employment.

One of my favorite parts of working with children is reading books to/with them. I also love how loving, curious, and imaginative children are. It is inspiring as well as fun to be around, which makes working with kids even more rewarding.

I do have reliable transportation and am able to perform tasks indirectly related to childcare (cooking, cleaning, driving, etc.). I do not smoke, and I am good with pets. Due to my most recent experience I am used to working with groups as large as 9 toddlers (18-24 mo) on my own.

More About Me
Relevant experience where I also cared for children were…I grew up babysitting (infants through middle school aged children) in informal as well as formal settings (ie: in home vs church nursery during VBS, etc.). After graduating college, I taught fifth and second graders before transitioning to a job as a toddler teacher (I have been placed in rooms of all ages for short periods of time, but my primary classroom is the 18-24 mo age range).
Activities I enjoy doing with children…One of my favorite things to do with children is read. At my preschool, we also teach sign language, and I have found that not only is the singing and signing process fun for children, but learning rudimentary sign language is a great way to encourage kids to communicate non-verbally. Those are two specific examples but honestly, kids make even the most seemingly mundane things an adventure. Their curiosity and enthusiasm as they discover their world and where they fit within it is a constant inspiration to me, and one of the reasons that I love working with children.
The most important part about being a nanny…Being patient, compassionate, and knowing how to see the positive in every situation.
My experience with special needs children…I have taught children with behavioral needs and cared for children with behavioral and special needs (ASD and CP being among them).
My favorite nanny moment…The kids I teach learning how to pronounce my name in their somewhat variously distorted ways (ie: Beba, Deda, Joja) was pretty heartwarming. Deda is a favorite of mine because when my sister was that age she used to call me Deda.
