I have always loved working with children! I started babysitting at a young age and then naturally chose to go into Elementary Education in college. I have taught 2-6th grade for almost 18 years now! Teaching is an amazing profession but it also leaves me with the summers off, so I often nanny or babysit. My husband and I have a 4-year-old son of our own, so what I'm looking for would be a nanny-share of sorts. One where I would be able to bring my son with me while I watch your precious little ones. With the previous families I have worked with, I love creating fun themes of the week and also bringing arts and crafts that correspond. Baking and cooking kid friendly recipes is one of my favorite things to do as well taking them exciting adventures all around Portland. I am open to full or part time work during the summer. I look forward to meeting with you and your family!
