Before college, I was a swim instructor for five years in Castalia, Ohio. As a swim instructor, I got to work with a wide range of kids from 6 months to about 14 years old. This position has enhanced my creative thinking skills because I had to come up with fun ways to keep the children engaged and eager to learn. In addition, I learned to be adaptable between ages and how to effectively communicate with children.
I have been volunteering at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital for the past two years. As a volunteer, I play with the children and give parents breaks when needed.
Although I do not have any previous nannying experience, I have one niece (8yr$ and two nephews (2yr & 4mo) that I always interact and occasionally watch. I believe I would be a good fit as a nanny because I have always been drawn to kids.
