Janelle’s Bio

Out of all the jobs I have done, the ones where I work with children have been my favorite. I enjoy seeing their eyes light up and their smile when they learn something new or accomplish something. Seeing the world through a child's eyes brings new perspective and reminds us of what is important in life. I am currently a full time nanny for a 2 1/2 year old boy who I started taking care of when he was 4 months old. Seeing him grow and learn has been a true joy the past couple of years! He has some special needs and I have learned a lot from his therapists and hope to practice some things when I eventually have my own children.

My time as a child care provider comes in various forms in a variety of contexts. From occasional babysitting for friends and family to substitute teaching, drop in child care at the YMCA, and being a camp counselor, I have worked with children from ages 6 weeks to 17 years old. I taught a year of Outdoor Education and was always surprised by the amazing curiosity that the students had for the world around them.

I have also worked with children in different cross-cultural environments. I have traveled to Baja Mexico, Nigeria and South African and had the privilege of meeting children who don't have a lot but they are so happy to be alive, no matter what their circumstances. I also was a teaching assistant for the Early Childhood Education program at World Relief in Chicago, where I worked with children of refugees and immigrants. I learned so much about other cultures and traditions by spending time with these children and their families.

I am CPR/First Aid/AED Certified and have a valid drivers license. I have done professional development with literacy works and by taking an introduction course to Early Childhood Education. I am passionate about advocating for children's rights and that they are a vital part of society.

Wonderful!

I felt very, very comfortable having her in my home with my son. She's got a great, warm personality and a genuine love for children. She was on time and very, very friendly. I will be calling her again soon for babysitting my little one!
