Former Special Ed Teacher And Child Advocate Seeking Nanny Opportunities
**Please note currently I'm only available for week nights and weekends for the occasional date night. I am a former Special Education teacher and current Child and Family Advocate. I taught grades 1st, 2nd, 6th, 7th and 8th grade Reading and Language. I have a Bachelors in Special Education. I have spent the last 7 years supporting, coaching and training foster providers to provide therapeutic care for foster children experiencing significant mental health and behavioral challenges. My parent training over the years have emphasized Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), Behavior Modification Techniques, Trauma Informed Care Giving, Crisis Intervention, Attachment Theory and Cultural Awareness. I am skilled at working with youth that have depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, RAD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ODD, and Bipolar.
I am looking for the occasional babysitting job for date nights or weekend care.
