Fun Loving and Retired, Career Kindergarten Teacher Seeking Families to Serve Part Time
I have worked with children most of my life, starting at a young age, I helped out in my grandmother's daycare. As a teenager, I babysat and was a camp counselor. I got my degree in education, and followed up with kindergarten endorsement and ESL certification. Five years ago, I retired from my 28 year teaching career in which I taught pre-k or kindergarten all of those years. The last five years, I have provided part time and occasional child care, part time nanny services, teen supervision, transportation, pet sitting, home boarding services, overnight care for teens, and some assistance with the elderly. I work at helping out my families in any way that I can.
When providing childcare, I love to bring along fun, engaging, stimulating and creative activities. I am not afraid to get messy. With children, I love painting, play dough, and mud pies. (We will clean up, too.)
I enjoy singing, dancing, cooking, science activities and especially reading to the children. I have provided assistance with homework. I've made games and supplemental activities to support what is being taught in school.
I strive to be kind, loving, dependable and flexible. I value the families I serve.
