I was a live-in nanny for a child with Down Syndrome in New Jersey for a year. I was also a come and go nanny for two children on the north side of Chicago for three years. I am a certified special education teacher with a Masters degree and seventeen years teaching experience. I love working with children and teens. Everything from ABCs to transitioning into adulthood. Currently working on coursework to become a behavior analyst. I will then be able to help people with disabilities and autism through ABA therapy. I will also be able to do consultations and write behavior plans to address a range of problems for children and adults.
