Jennifer’s Bio

Hi! I'm Jennifer. I'm originally from Pennsylvania but moved to California in 2005 for college.  I graduated from Humboldt State University and then earned my Master's degree in Washington. I am currently working part-time as a curriculum specialist at QTA Tutoring Center, a non-profit Buddhist temple serving under-performing students in East San Jose. I am in search of a full-time informal education position, but in the meantime would like to earn some extra income through childcare.

I come from a large family of 10 and have been working and volunteering with children for over a decade. During the past several years, I have worked more intensively in childcare positions as a full-time nanny, nursery assistant, camp counselor, camp director, athletic coach and academic tutor. I have worked with infants to college students and contribute everything I've learned to the different individuals and family dynamics. Working with children and youth and helping them discover the joy of life’s little lessons has been very important to me.

I do have experience working with special needs children in a variety of capacities.  I grew up with an autistic sibling and my nephew is both autistic and Type I diabetic.  I also have worked with learning disabilities including cognitive speech loss (probably the most heart wrenching thing in the world), and cerebral palsy.

Aside from that, a brief summary of my experiences include a year in New Zealand as a live-in aupair for 2 little ladies, 5 years as a full-time nanny in the bay area, 3.5 years as a church nursery assistant (ages newborn - 3), and many many evening and weekend hours as a repeat babysitter and Mother's helper. I believe my attitude and experience will make me a great choice for your family!

Please take a look at my availability calendar and feel free to contact me with any questions. :-)
