I have more than 6 years of professional childcare experience, working with individual families and as a preschool teacher. I am a patient, kind and high energy individual with a strong work ethic. I believe that children are a family's greatest assets. After many years of working in fields varying from banking to beauty, I decided to take a risk and follow my passion, children! I have always loved children and enjoy being in their company, as well as teaching them. I have worked with children ranging in age from newborn infants to 9 years old and I am comfortable meeting all aspects of their daily needs. My experience includes but is not limited to meal preparation and feeding; diaper changing, bath time routines, homework assistance, organizing age appropriate activities and lesson planning and much more. I am an avid reader who loves music, drama, traveling and the outdoors. I am always excited to share these interests with children through story time, music and movement activities, playtime at the park and outings to the zoo and other places of interest. I am family oriented and value my relationships with relatives and friends. I consider myself blessed when a bond is formed between myself and the children in my care. No day is complete without hugs and kisses.
