My experience includes teaching 3-6 year-olds and 9-12 year-olds in a Montessori environment, facilitating parenting classes, and parenting my own children who have now left me with an empty nest that is still filled with lots of love to give. In the past, I have been lucky enough to be able to watch two babies (one at a time) for a year each, in a volunteer capacity. The gift was mine, because it brings me such joy. I have also attended numerous conferences on brain development, infant brain development, best practices regarding education, etc. For the past 4 years, I have been a part time nanny to multiple families, as well as providing nanny placement and babysitting referrals for multiple families. I have also provided training and monitoring of babysitters and nannies. I enjoy helping families find positive ways to meet their child care needs for the benefit of the adults and the children!
