I've raised my children and would love to be part of a busy, lovable family. I am looking for full-time, long term work and bring maturity, experience and dedication to the job. I am energetic, patient and loving, but I also am very grounded and organized and know how to bring order to chaos. Without hesitation I'm confident that the children I've had the opportunity to work with would speak highly of me. I've loved them and felt loved back. I know how to keep order, but I'm also very fun and playful. Some of the skills and talents I have are: I am an excellent seamstress and can sew costumes, dresses, and outfits. I have been a private chef and can cook for diabetics, gluten-free diets, or those with special dietary needs. I am a professional artist and have taught art to children as well as adults. I am a bronze sculptor artist and am currently working on a sculpture of Orrin Porter Rockwell. I am meticulous and have cleaned houses professionally. I have taught art and cooking to children, as well as taught remedial math and reading. Do you have a child with special needs? I believe I am excellent in enrolling kids into my system of structure and discipline. If you need the kids transported to school, or other activities, I drive a new, 2011 car and have full coverage. I wholeheartedly believe that children should be praised for positive behavior and encouraged to choose the right. I volunteer in a Youth Center and love it. I believe that children are our greatest asset and that with the right environment and opportunities they will blossom into the young adults that would make us all proud. I would love to find a family who would benefit from my experience, talents and devotion. If that sounds like you, please call me and let's talk. I'd love to meet with you.
