I am practically raising my sister's two children. The eldest boy is 6 years old and the youngest boy is 1 year old. For a year and a half, I was a live-in nanny for a 14-year-old girl while her mother was away for school. I also have experience as a math and English tutor for elementary, junior high, and high school students, so I can assist children with their studies. I am great with children and am knowledgeable of their developmental needs, having earned an associate degree in liberal studies and child development at Long Beach City College.
I am passionate about working with children because I feel that I can really connect with them. I communicate well with children, as I possess the necessary characteristics of a child care provider, including: patience, compassion, understanding, fairness, trustworthiness, and humor.
