I'm a university instructor, teaching 2 classes this semester. Primarily, my grading is done from home, and I only teach outside the home for 3-4 hr stretches, generally on Tues & Fri. My husband also works from home a great deal, but travels out-of-state from time to time. So, we are looking for someone who can work alongside us, and provide care especially during busy times of the day (mealtimes, nap/bath/bedtime, etc.), totaling approximately 20 hrs/wk. We have 2 girls, aged 17mo. and 3. 5 yrs. I should also mention that we own a large dog, who is quite friendly, but will initially bark at people who come to the door. She is great with the kids and very gentle. Caregiver should be comfortable around animals. Our 3-yr-old will be attending preschool 4 days/wk and may require pickup/drop-off, if my husband or I aren't available.
