I had a full-time nanny job from June to August in 2012 for a family in Minnesota. The children were 3 and 4 years of age. I worked at a summer day camp for children in Chicago, Illinois at Saint John Berchmans Parish (located in Logan Square). I was a camp counselor for girls, ages 5 to 12. From August 2014 to December 2015, I interned at Family and Children's Center in Winona, Minnesota. I was an intern for the elementary day treatment program for children, ages 7 to 9. These children suffered from behavioral and psychological disorders that impaired them from functioning optimally in a full school day setting. Also, throughout my time at Saint Mary's, I have been a babysitter for a family in Winona.
For the past two years, I have been a resident assistant at Saint Mary's. For the 2013-2014 academic year, I lived in a building with 100 freshman girls, in which 30 of them were my residents. This academic year (2014-2015), I am a resident assistant in a building with over 100 upper class students. I am also a tutor for general psychology and a study hall monitor for a First Generation Initiative program at Saint Mary's.
I have had a lot of experience with children of many different ages. I am pursuing a career in Counseling Psychology that will allow me to work with children and adolescents. I have a passion for working with kids, which is why I am searching for a nannying job. I am very excited about my move to Chicago and I am excited to speak with you!
