Nanny/Babysitter With Degrees Available Immediately!
I graduated from Malone University with two degrees-an Early Childhood Education degree, which allows me to teach Pre-K through 3rd grade, and an Intervention Specialist degree, which allows me to teach Special Education Kindergarten-12th grade. The pursuit of these degrees has provided me with a multitude of experiences in public schools, inner city, suburban, and so on.
During college, I worked off and on for a daycare/learning center. At this center, I was provided with the opportunity to work with infants 6 weeks old up through 5th graders. I created and implemented age-appropriate activities to engage students. I also developed classroom management skills, and built relationships with students, parents and staff.
From September 2010 until April 2011 I worked as the head teacher at a daycare in Lakewood, Ohio. I created my own fun, interactive and educational curriculum related to topics provided by the directors. I interacted with students, parents, other staff, and even held parent-teacher conferences. I communicated with parents through daily sheets, assessments and newsletters.
From May 2011 until September 2011, I was the lead teacher at a Head Start school. I developed engaging/interactive activities for 3-5-year-olds. I tracked student development with anecdotal notes and individualized activities based on student interests.
In September of 2011, my son was born. I decided to stay home with him to best suit our family. During the time since then, I have helped provide childcare/nanny for 2 families. The reason those ended was because both families had children starting school and no longer needing extensive home-care.
My husband has been a pastor for 7 years. This has provided us with the opportunity to work with junior and senior high students exclusively for five years. I have not only done fun activities with them, but have also have provided counseling for some students. In addition to working with teens at our church current and previous church, I have worked with the children, doing Sunday School and Vacation Bible School.
I enjoy working with children of all ages, and feel that the different opportunities and experiences that have been placed in my path have helped me to become a well-rounded educator and child-care provider. I am always willing to continue learning and helping myself grow. I also am always looking for new fun things to do and teach children!
