Fun, Loving, Dependable, Outgoing & Patient Caregiver Available Today!
My love for children began at an early age. Not only did I aid my mother in the care of my younger brother, I also obtained my first babysitting job at age 9 and continued throughout my teenage years. Although my first job was for a financial institution, I attended Oakland Community College where I earned my Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education. Shortly upon graduation, I resigned as a banker and was employed by an agency as a Special Needs Assistant, servicing 5 centers, assisting children ages 2 1/2 to 5 years. After 2 years of employment, I was selected to assist a church in the opening of a child care facility for infants, toddlers and school aged children. I was hired as the Assistant Director/Lead Teacher. Currently, I am the assistant Sunday school teacher for my church and I teach children crafts including but not limited to candle and soap making. I also conduct entrepreneurial workshops for teenagers. I am fun, loving, creative, outgoing, patient and dependable. I am a mother of two children and 16 nieces and nephews. Because I am a parent, I know and value the importance of quality child care. I am very passionate about the overall development of children.
