I have been babysitting since the age of 12, but more professionally was a nanny since 2003-2013, for a family of 3 children, ages 10, 7 and 5. I have been with these children for 10 years and have seen each of them through infancy until now. I love these children as they are my own. I have uncountable other experiences with children, including babysitting, tutoring and teaching. I returned from a year contract job teaching English as a second language in South Korea, which was an amazing experience. I am responsible and caring, trustworthy and dependable. Caring for children, teaching them and learning from them as well, is a passion of mine in life. A child's future abounds them. It is up to the people involved in their life to push them in the right path and I have a very positive effect and message to convey to children. I can be loads of fun, but also portray the security and stability they need when the parents can't always be home with their children. I can handle multitasking and can easily be involved with the children and household activities at once, for example homework, cleaning, dinner, bedtime, etc. My most recent career opportunities provided me with a level of experience unprecedented in my life before. I taught Special Education to Elementary students k-5 in Atlanta, GA for 2 years, working with and implementing personalized education plans for students with disabilities, and training other teachers in my field as the Department Chair. I am now moving home to Michigan to be closer to family and friends and look forward to future opportunities to work with children and watch them grow. I have worked at a Math and Reading Center (have 5 years experience). I have also tutored privately for about 8 years in subjects ranging from English, History, Math, Reading and Writing.
