I love the joy that children bring around with them where they go. I love to encourage their creativity and imagination. My favorite moments with them are when we are simply sitting, being silly, and enjoying our time.
I recently attended Elgin Community College pursuing my degree in Early Childhood Education. I was also working as a nanny from August of 2011 until June 2013 and I loved it.
I love working with kids. For two years I enjoyed working as a kindergarten, school-age, and learning-adventurers teacher at a Learning Center. Before that I spent 3 summers as a camp counselor for a day camp. I also have been a small group leader for the high school and middle school ministry at my church for 8 years.
Two years ago, I became an aunt to two beautiful girls and spent one spring as my sister's live-in nanny watching her 3-month-old. It was an incredible experience that inspired me to want to nanny full time.
Most recently, I have been a nanny for a family of 3 girls. They are 3, 5, and 8. We like to play outside, bake, and do crafts together. Their mom is a teacher so over the summer I took care of a family that is a little boy who was 1 1/2 and a girl who was 6. We loved to play at the parks and go swimming.
I look forward to another opportunity to nanny in the future.
