Part-time Or Full Time Nanny, And Temp Jobs
I just moved here from New Orleans, LA and I am drawn to all of the outside activities that California offers. I consider myself an outdoor kind of girl, love adventure and anything that inspires the mind, body, and soul. I am a very family oriented person and believe happiness needs to be shared. I have worked closely with all ages of children including adolescents. I am a creative person and I am always coming up with a way children can learn and enjoy their developmental years. I think it is extremely important to always make a child feel safe, comfortable, cared for, and adored. I received my Master's in Social Work and have worked as a licensed social worker for 6 years. My work experience helps me understand the physical, social, and cognitive developmental stages. I have experience in working with children with learning disabilities, mental and behavioral challenges, poor impulses, children experiencing grief, adoptive families, transitional issues, and children of divorce.

Hi, we are a small family with an 11-year-old son and two parents with full time jobs. We need help with basic tasks so we can spend quality time with our son when the work day ends. We are looking for someone to help us out with shopping, cooking, light cleaning, errands, and picking up our son at school. He does not need baby sitting and he is very independent and delightful. most days he likes to be dropped off at my office and then he goes to the library downtown. My ideal assistant has their own transportation, is a non-smoker and is comfortable with pets. Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks!
