I have always loved taking care of children; I used to work in a day care in Brazil taking care of babies. Also, I used to teach English in an elementary school. I decided to come to US to improve my English, so I became an Au pair. (Au pair is a program that you can come to the US to study English and work as a babysitter and live with an American Family for 2 years.) My 2 year program is done with the family and I decided to change my Visa for student and keep working as babysitter and go to college. Some days I will help my host family, but they do not need me as before because all the kids are going to school and spending most of the day there. After my 2 year program I worked with another American family, for 10 months. I had to quit because of personal reasons, but now, I am ready to work again!
If you are interested feel free to call any of the two families and they can indicate me. I still keep our friendship.
Also, I am very flexible and if you need any help with the house I can do that. I can be your big helper!
