I have always been naturally gifted at caring for and teaching children. In 2006, I received a Bachelor's degree in elementary education. From 2008 to 2011, I taught preschool (ages 3-5) at a YMCA in Idaho. From 2012 to 2016 I nannied for several wonderful families and also gained valuable experience as an educational assistant. During the years 2016 to 2019 I loved working as an infant teacher at a church in the Rice Village area. Currently, I'm employed as a toddler teacher at the same church but am looking to get back into full-time nannying. It's my preference to have a more personal setting for working with children and their families. I love to engage kids in art projects and read-alouds/interactive book projects. I also encourage outdoor play, can prepare healthy meals, and am happy to provide homework help. Please contact me if interested!

Amanda was our family's first experience with a nanny/at-home child care, and she was fantastic. She cared for our twins for a year, and we loved our experience with her. Amanda is all the things we wanted: compassionate and connected with our kids; timely and transparent. She taught our kiddos so much, and created a weekly schedule to blend in activities, playtime, art, language skills, and music. We connected with her a few months into the pandemic, and she was communicative and responsible/on par with our expectations for quarantining purposes. She was a gem to work with during an incredibly unique time.

*Babysitting/Nanny! I enjoy taking care of kids. I will watch all ages from babies to toddlers to school age children to adolescents. I like getting on the floor and playing games, coloring and drawing, reading stories; from changing, feeding, to planning different activities with them. My old school motherhood comes into play when it's time to eat/bottle feed (eat everything off your plate.), being safe and entertained in fun ways that do not always include watching TV or movies all the time. It is important for them to have play time, and reading time. My experience allowed me to work with families with diverse backgrounds and their needs, engaging their children in everything, from newborns, toddlers, elem. kids, teens, young adult, to special needs. I assist clients/patients with daily living and fundamental tasks at their office, homes, daycare, school, assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities, nursing homes and mental health facilities. I provide direct care to pediatric, teenage, geriatric patients, disabled, handicapped, hospice, and mentally challenged patients. I assist clients/patients with running any errands such as; going with them to their doctor appointments, school, daycare, cleaners, grocery shopping, paying bills, etc. I wash clothes, change bed linens, take out trash, dust, direct visitors, and answers telephones. I cook and serve meals and help assist with eating by mouth or peg tube feeding and bottle feeding (baby).
