Housekeeping, Family Assistant
Hi. My name is Teresa. I am a very active mother of 3 boys, two of which have grown up and left the nest, and 10-year-old that keeps me young. I also have a 21-month-old granddaughter. I am the second child in a family of 8, and therefore, started babysitting at a very young age. I knew by the time I was out of my teen years that I would pursue a career involving children. I completed my Elementary Education degree and worked for many years as a substitute teacher, and then later switched my focus to care giving. I find the task of a nanny so rewarding because I see it an extension of the parenting job, and I consider it a highly valued responsibility. I find children and their ideas so fascinating. I love to see how they view the world, and how they process information and ideas. Children are the ones who remind me to stop and smell the roses . When I am not working with children, you will find me in the gym, exploring the great outdoors, or in the kitchen, baking up something amazing. I have over 30 years experience working with children of all ages
I have the following training and education: First Aid and CPR certified, Live scan background check, college level courses in Early Childhood Education, Infant & Toddler Care giving, and Guidance and Discipline Techniques I am mature, caring, energetic, organized, professional, dependable, punctual, honest, and trustworthy.
