Pursuing a masters degree in social work with an undergraduate degree in elementary education. I was a full-time nanny for a 2-year-old boy immediately following college, and subsequently worked full-time for a family with 2-year-old twin girls, and then a family with three children aged 11 months- 5 years of age. I am the oldest of 5 children with extensive babysitting, nannying, and early childhood experience. I have subbed in daycare facilities and am comfortable with structuring, including a lot of hands-on activities and outdoor time. Now that I am pursuing my masters degree, I am looking to make a bit of extra money to pay for school and pay off my undergraduate student loans. I love spending time with kids and watch my 12-year-old niece and 6-month-old niece a few days a week in addition to my 4-year-old daughter. I believe in teaching children the boundaries of safety and respect for other people but otherwise I like to let kids be kids. I value nature and exploration.
