Katherine’s Bio

Hello parents! My name is Katherine and I'm from Lima, Peru. I have been a Colorado resident for 10 years and I'm currently in the process of getting my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate.

*I just got back to the States after being 6 months away in Peru working as an english teacher at 2 institutes, one for toddlers and another one for adults. It's been a great experience but now that I'm back I'm looking for a great home where we can all be on the same page and work as a team!*

Before my trip to Peru I worked for a wonderful family in Castle Pines for about a year(2014-2015). I was the nanny of two beautiful girls who I adore - 1 and 2 year old and still nanny on Sundays.

I have also worked as a private english tutor for school-aged children in Peru in September 2013 until February 2014.

In 2009 I was the nanny of 2 school-aged children in Fox Hollow, Lakewood and that lasted for about 4 years (2009-2013). I have also worked as a nanny for the Colorado Rockies during the 2010 season; as a bilingual teacher assistant at Denison Montessori; as an after school sitter for a family in Cherry Creek; as a third grade Spanish (reading and mathematics) tutor at Doull Elementary school for an after-school program called Tutor Train; as a bilingual summer nanny and I have babysat children for over 9 years.

Katherine babysits our 7-month old son and does an excellent job. Her love for working with kids is very apparent and she is confident, calm, and caring. She came prepared with strong references for her interview with us and is very reliable. We are very comfortable leaving her with our 7-month old but I'm sure she would be great with a variety of ages (and she has excellent experience as a teacher's assistant). Would highly recommend her!

Katherine watched my preschoolers and all house rules were respected and the kids had a good time too. I will use her again at every opportunity.

Katherine is hands-down my go-to girl for babysitting. My daughter loves spending time with her, never gets bored, behaves awesome and sleeps well whenever Katherine comes over. Simply stated... she is reliable, fun, attentive to details, intelegent, creative, educational, artistic, calming, rightfuly confident, almost always avialable with wither advanced or short notices and everything else who could wish for in a sitter.

Katherine has been our nanny for the last year and a half. Our kids are incredibly fond of her (as is our very large dog!). Katherine takes the kids to and from school, frequently takes them to doctor's appointments and takes them to after school activities. She takes care of homework, school projects, kids meals and laundry. Katherine is very reliable and a safe driver. She is also extremely diligent about getting homework/reading completed on a daily basis and ensuring that we don't miss school projects. Katherine has watched our kids for extended weekend trips as well. We trust her completely. She has a calm demeanor, and can be firm when she needs to be. She gives us insight to the kids' day. She let's us know if there are issues that need to be addressed, and is quick to share their accomplishments! I decided to take the summer off, and Kat is looking for a full time position. We know her new family will be as happy with her as we are. We definitely plan on keeping Katherine in our kids lives.

Katherine is an amazingly creative and fun sitter with our girls, ages 8 and 10. She is willing to jump in and do crafts with them and even helped create a chore chart with my youngest that she actually wants to use. She will come up with fun activities or just jump on the trampoline with them.

She is prompt, reliable, on-time, and also helps around the house, often doing dishes after the kids go to bed. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Kat is nothing short of outstanding! She has watched our 5-year-old daughter twice now, and both times she's impressed our little one and us beyond measure. In our first experience with Kat, we came home to beautiful butterfly garland strung in our daughter's room, a stack of 10 books that were read to her before bed, and morning reports watching Disney princess movies and eating Crazy Bread. She builds block castles with our daughter and isn't afraid to adorn her head with fake flowers and over accessorize with plastic necklaces for a good giggle. All of this, and our daughter is fed, with teeth brushed, and sound asleep by the time we get home. We would (and will) continue to hire Katherine in a heartbeat! We would recommend her without hesitation!
