Full Time, Live Out Sitter/Nanny/Mother's Helper W/BA, Teaching Experience - July 1
I am very interested in speaking with you about the opportunity to work with your family and I feel that I would be very qualified for the job.
Please allow me to tell you a little about myself. I am 37-years-old and I have previous experience as an elementary school teacher, middle school teacher, and as a full time nanny. I am also the single mother of an amazing 2-year-old girl. I have a Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences, however, I majored for many years in Elementary Education. My degree had an emphasis on Psychology, particularly Child Psychology, Behavior Modification, and Educational Psychology. I also have been educated in Vocal Performance and have spent much time singing in church and community choirs.
I love to travel and hope to do much more traveling in my life. I speak conversational Spanish, although not fluently. I enjoy exercise, mostly yoga, and I try to maintain a healthy diet, which is something that I would hope to teach your children about, with your permission of course.
As I previously mentioned, I have worked as a teacher, Third - Fifth Grade, in a public school in Tampa, FL, for children with emotional or behavioral disorders. After leaving that position, I moved to Los Angeles where I worked as a nanny for a 2-year-old boy. I also worked as a Math teacher in a Los Angeles middle school for a year.
Prior to teaching, I worked at a hospital in Tampa in labor and delivery and lactation, as a lactation consultant and childbirth educator for two years. Therefore, I also have professional experience with new mothers and am very comfortable handling infants (not to mention being a mother myself).
Currently, I am living in Lake Charles, LA with my family, but I am relocating to New York as soon as I possibly can, so that my daughter may be close to her father. I would love to speak with you over the phone to answer any other questions you may have. Feel free to contact me at any time, either by phone or e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much for your time.
