Meet Graciela

My goal is to provide high quality child care. Being a full-time mother of two children and by having the opportunity to care for them at all times, I learned to understand the importance of being a responsible parent. Providing them with safe and loving care helps them grow emotionally and physically strong and healthy. Now that my children are grown up and very much on their own, I tried to go back to my clerical skills, which I used to do before marrying but, I found out that children are what I feel most connected to.

My goal is to provide high quality child care. Being a full-time mother of two children and by having the opportunity to care for them at all times, I learned to understand the importance of being a responsible parent. Providing them with safe and loving care helps them grow emotionally and physically strong and healthy. Now that my children are grown up and very much on their own, I tried to go back to my clerical skills, which I used to do before marrying but, I found out that children are what I feel most connected to. I come from a Christian family of 9 children. We grew up with family values and morals. Children are always first.
My services are limited to child care ONLY when a newborn or toddler is under my care; however, I do look after everything that has to do with the child as far as keeping nursing and playing areas, laundry, and food preparation is concerned. If the child is 3 years old and above, I can engage in some extra light housework such as laundry for the family, dishes and tidying up around the house and, compensation wages will be expected accordingly. I work on a signed one year minimum contract that should include all standards for working hour schedules, compensation wages, regulations, obligations and benefits recognized and classified for this type of employment by the Labor Law of the State of Texas such as 40 working hours per week, with a maximum of 45 hours per week that includes the one hour break for lunch; the right to paid sick leave, paid 10 days of vacation, paid generic national holidays, and 4 unpaid days per year for PTO (Personal Time Off) when necessary. Wages are paid preferably on a weekly basis and not by the hour; however, should any extra time be needed, it can be negotiated for free time during the regular working hours schedule or paid by the hour at a rate of $10.00 per hour.
I am a responsible person, with good organizational and clean habits, punctuality and detail performance are my forte. I believe in well managed discipline, in fun, friendship and confidence to build character and sense of responsibility, I believe in trust and self respect. Being a babysitter or a nanny is not just about "watching" children, but helping them grow to become fine, sensitive and productive adults of our society and aiding parents in their education and loving and safe care; therefore, I take my job very seriously.
I do not smoke, I am not very fond of pets but they are not a problem. I have my own transportation and

Hi, I have the pleasure to recommend Graciela as a reliable, trustworthy, gentle, patient, loving and very responsible babysitter. She worked for me full time for a few months, until I was off from my school year term during the summer of 2010. Graciela still helps me every now and then with my younger child. She is a well experienced mother of two grown up children, who has the knowledge and the common sense... More

Dear Adaora O.,

Thank you for your kind words about me and how you felt talking to me on the phone. I must say that I felt the same about you and, it is very unfortunate that what we both are looking for did not match this time.

I wish you all the best in your search for the right caregiver for your children, and, if in the future you think you may need me and I am available according to the circumstances,...
