My name is Ashley and I am currently a senior at the University of Texas. I am a psychology major minoring in educational psychology and am very good with children as well as young infants. I intend to continue my schooling to become a counselor for children and adolescents whose parents are going through a divorce or who come from a troubled broken home. I have two precious baby brothers whom I have cared for and watched grow up. I love them like they were my own! Although I have no professional experience as a "nanny" I consider myself very experienced at handling a tiny baby. One of the most important things about caring for an infant is properly supporting their heads and neck when handling them. I was 12 when my first brother was born and 14 when my second brother was born and I always wanted to help with changing, feeding, and bathing them. Additionally my mom's best friend had two baby girls exactly a month apart from each of my brothers so there was always 2 babies around the house at a time! In addition to caring for your baby I will also help tidy up the house and keep her clothes clean. My father is an OB-GYN and I was a certified nurse's assistant in my clinical program in high school. Both have given me a great deal of knowledge of medical issues and general health that I believe to be very important in caring for an infant because symptoms of pertussis, rotovirus, or RSV must be caught immediately or they can be very dangerous, even deadly. My 1st brother actually had rotovirus and was hospitalized, and my 2nd brother had RSV and was also hospitalized even though they both were attended to immediately. Changes in stool, feeding habits, and lethargy are all things that I most certainly would recognize and bring to your attention. Please don't let my lack of professional experience deter you from considering me for the position because I assure you I will take great care of your children.
I have always excelled in academic studies, graduating high school with a 4.9 GPA. I am very knowledgeable in all areas of mathematics excluding Calculus, specifically algebra, geometry and pre-calculus. I can help with grammar and writing style, study habits, and presentations. I love history and do a great job explaining important events in a relevant, modern-day setting that makes it easier to understand and more interesting than mere facts and dates. I love learning and am patient and perceptive. I can quickly figure how your child thinks about things to create the best approach to learning.
