For 25+ years it has been a joy to see that children really want adults to spend time with them interacting in fun and creative ideas like art to music, story telling, baking projects and story time dress up activities. My strength is in childcare as quality time without video games and television.
I worked 9 years in the Kent school district in the States as an instructional assistant reading specialist and language integration instructor, grades pre-school to Gymnasium. I have an excellent command of the English language and am currently enrolled in intensive Norwegian at Folkeuniversitetet, studying hard and learning quickly. I love children and enjoy interacting with them as well as teaching, playing and supporting them in all their interests and activities. I am a caring listener and have a great imagination and creative spirit. Organized, tidy, honest, hardworking, physically fit, a cheerful, kind personality and the willingness to 'go the extra mile' in everything I do are among my strengths. I have also worked with young children and teenagers as a yoga and meditation instructor.Household duties, cooking, baking, driving to activities and motivation are all part of my rounded experience for the past 30 years of child raising.
I am from the US with a son and 4 grandchildren here in the Asker area. This summer I moved to Norway to be actively involved in my grandchildren here. Our family does not have pets and we do not smoke. My university degree is from the University of Washington, Seattle, in European History and I am well travelled. I look forward to working with your family!
