My name is Lacy and I am a professional nanny. I am a 24-year-old sophomore at Cerritos College and I will be transferring to Long Beach State to conclude my major in Child Development in 2012. I have a talent and a passion for working with children and I can't imagine pursuing any other career. I am seeking a part-time position, preferably long-term. My schedule is flexible and with every new school semester, I will select my classes around my work agenda. I attend classes at Cerritos College on Tuesdays and Thursdays but I can also switch my classes to Mondays and Wednesdays if it is more convenient for the family I work with. :)
