My name is Danielle and I am 27 years old. I am an experienced nanny, mentor, tutor and preschool teacher's aide. Over the last decade, I have worked with children ranging from age 0 to 14. My experience working with kids started with babysitting. I then tutored math and reading to elementary school students through a program called Backpack Tutoring when I was in high school, and around the same time, I taught snowboarding/park riding to children 9-14 through a program called Board Jammers. I have been babysitting and nannying for 12 years. I have experience as both a teachers aide, and a Primary/Lead teacher. In my free time, I tutored through a program called Art Buddies, working with elementary school kids on art projects. I attended MCTC for Early Childhood Development and Education and am working to finish my last semester online to achieve my Early Childhood Education Degree. I currently have course work completed for my CDA and have a Early Childhood Development Certificate through my school at MCTC. I am a professional child care provider and nanny, and take my job very seriously in working with kids, teaching, mentoring and/or tutoring. I am an artist, writer and musician and believe that those are great tools in teaching kids of all ages in a fun and interactive way. In that, I am very passionate about providing healthy curriculum which follow the mental development and age of the child/children I work with. (For instance, for all ages, I enjoy having art days, nature days, music days, science days, etc. that involve activities appropriate to that child's developmental stage and age.) My ideal job would be long-term for I find it really important to connect with the kids and establish stability. I love outdoor activities, camping in the summer, adventures in the sun and exercise. I believe that health, play and a good amount of sun is vital and important to everyone.
