Being a nanny is a natural fit for me. The combination of being an active and inquisitive person in addition to my immensely patient and nurturing personality allow for me to easily take on the role of care-giver. I adore children. I love working with them, being around them, and having fun with them. It is important that kids be able to have fun and explore their world with the person caring for them. I believe their curiosity and creativity should be encouraged and cultivated. However, while they need a spirited “playmate,” children also need boundaries, structure, and a responsible adult. I take my job very seriously and understand the high level of commitment, accountability, and reliability required of me. Every parent wants their child to grow into a well-rounded person. I understand that as a nanny, I have a great responsibility to ensure that kids feel pleased and confident Read more with themselves and their surroundings. Through hard work, great energy and a lot of love, I am able to create a safe and lively environment for children as well as partner with parents to help grow their children into bright, capable, well-adjusted people. Furthermore, I am a skilled fort builder, gracious loser at Candyland, semi-pro Crayola Crayon technician, eager cupcake baker, A+ book report co-author and homework double-checker, below-average hider but highly-skilled seeker, animated story-time reader, victorious imaginary monster slayer, fantastic tea party planner and guest, experienced assistant to an “exotic pet trainer,” and successful cardboard box spaceship manufacturer. ● 8 years experience as a nanny ● 1.5 years as kindergarten teaching assistant ● 1.5 years as Sunday School teacher for kindergarten and first grade ● Experience with multiples, newborns/preemies, and children with developmental and emotional issues ● 2.5 years live-in experience ● 3 years coursework in Psychology and Sociology with courses in Child Development ● CPR/First-Aid Certified ● Able to teach piano and music theory for beginner and intermediate levels ● Patient, Nurturing, Amiable, Creative, Dedicated, Motivated, Responsible, Organized, Flexible and Team-Player Minded
