I am very energetic, honest and love working with children. I have worked as a Montessori teacher for a class of 2 to 4-year-olds. I have experience working with children for many years, and I also have three children of my own. I am very neat and tidying up after children is not a major task for me. I am very creative, nurturing and sensitive to the varying needs and demands of children. I have a good sense of humor, I am patient and understanding. I have an ability to communicate appropriately with children of different ages. I enjoy making sure the children are happy, contented and taken care of without any shortcomings. I don't consider it a challenge, it's something I love doing. I enjoy helping children grow, explore and learn about life. The positive responses and appreciation I receive from a child are a reward which is priceless. Read more I love children and love to make sure that they are happy, and that they know they have someone who they can depend on, who will be there to give them a hug when they need it, and make sure everything goes smoothly. My role is to provide support to the family by serving as a loving, nurturing and trustworthy companion to the children.
