I have been babysitting and nannying for 12 years. I worked as a teacher's aide at a preschool in Missoula for 2 years, and in 2012, started working as a nanny in Minneapolis. 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 curriculums 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.
