Meet Amanda

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I have been a babysitter for 23 years, a nanny for 15 years, and a physical education teacher for 6 years. I have experience with every age of children 0-18, am comfortable with multiple children, and doubles. I have a 6 month-old son I would need to bring with me sometimes, and he is a doll. I have nannied, babysit, and taught children with special needs, children with severe allergies, children with disabilities, children with Autism, Asperger's, and emotional disturbances. I have taught 240 students a day for the last six years, nannied in the summer, and am used to nannying 1-4 children, all day, and sometimes all night. My degree is in Kinesiology, my teaching credential is in Physical Education, and my Master of the Arts is in Education, with a Teaching and learning emphasis. I love working out the kids I nanny, making sure they get as much Read more physical activity as they can, and teaching them/helping them to read, write, explore new vocabulary, etc. I love what I do!
