I have over 10 years of experience working with children from two months of age to 13 years of age.
I am an elementary school teacher at a private Christian school, looking to supplement my income during the summer months when I have a great deal more flexibility in my schedule. I am currently able to work any shift (mornings, afternoons, evenings and overnight if needed) including weekends and holidays.
Coming from a family with three children, I've learned the importance of maintaining a household in order to make the day to day living easier for a family. I was brought up with solid moral values, with an emphasis placed on education, guidance, and expression through creativity. I sincerely love kids; I enjoy interacting with them and find that my energy is well suited to caring for them. I like creating a fun, game-like approach to most activities, as I feel children respond well and retain more of the educational aspect when modeled in this manner.
Baking is a fun activity that I use to teach time management, responsibility and light mathematical skills. It gives a child a sense of accomplishment when following directions and completing a project. I am CPR/First Aid certified and look forward to sharing my love, experience, and knowledge as a nanny.
