I am a mother of two beautiful children: a daughter who will begin her Senior year in college in the fall and a son who passed away in 2012. I adore children! Although my B. S. degree is in Elementary education with a minor in Kindergarten, most of my experience is with children from Newborns through Kindergarten-age. I have approximately 10 years experience providing loving, quality childcare in my home, and 2 years in a daycare setting. I cherish the 6 years I worked as a teaching assistant in kindergarten, as well as teaching preschool for 5 years. The past 2 years I have had the honor to work as a professional nanny to 2 wonderful preschoolers. I enjoy traveling, hiking, singing, playing games, reading, doing crafts, and providing fun, educational experiences and outings for children of all ages. My CPR/first aid certification will be renewed this month.
