I have over 10 years experience working with children. I have nannied full time for several families and babysat for dozens of families, children ages 5 weeks to 15 years. I love spending time with children, teaching and learning from them. I was a full-time employee at a special needs child care facility working with children ages 3 months to 12 years. I am certified in the Nurtured Heart Approach, Special Needs, Therapeutic Intervention, and CPR/first aide, including for infants and children. I have experience leading children in activities, managing classroom behavior, supervising children and providing guidance. For six and a half years I worked at a mobile petting zoo where the job responsibilities included teaching children how to ride horses and care for farm animals as well as facilitate learning about animals. Additionally, I have approximately three years experience volunteering at child care facilities, schools, and homeless shelters.
