Poppy’s Bio

Hi!
My name is Poppy, I am a 26-year-old college graduate. I attended DePaul University, and majored in broadcast journalism with a minor in sociology. I grew up in Lake Forest, Illinois where I participated in gymnastics, diving and many volunteer-orientated clubs while attending high school at Lake Forest High School.

Most recently, I was a lead Kindergarten teacher at a Canadian international school in Prague, Czech Republic. I held this position for 2 years and learned more about childcare and the pedagogical approach every day. It's was a challenging experience with a lot of work, but definitely worth it!

I have also worked at daycare in Chicago called Kids' Work Chicago, where I gained a lot of experience in caring for infants to 5 year olds. I am comfortable with everything from bottle feeding/sleep training to behavioral and disciplinary problems.

As a babysitter in high school and college, I was mostly spending time with 6-13 year olds, so I have a very broad 'portfolio' as far as caring for children/young adults. I started babysitting when I was 12 and haven't been able to stop! I love kids, everything that I can learn from them and being able to teach them as well!

I have experience with multiples and mixed-age groups! I posses the patience and understanding to really listen to and work with children well.

Ideally I am looking for a full-time nannying job that would begin July 2015 at the earliest, or September 2015 at the latest as my contract in Prague does not end until June 26, 2015.
