Amy’s Bio

Hello! My name is Amy, and I am a former 3rd grade teacher. Prior to classroom teaching for 2 years, I was a special education assistant; I worked with a wide variety of students with special needs in kindergarten through fifth grade. I also took over a maternity leave and taught 2nd graders for half a year. I have been working with children for 8 years. This past year I was a full-time nanny for a wonderful family and cared for a toddler and preschooler (2 year old boy and 4/5 year old girl). While in college, I nannied for 3 children (ages 3, 5 and 7), babysat regularly for two families (boys ages 1, 3 and 4) and have cared for countless other children while their parents went on date nights and/or worked around the house. I am reliable, responsible, caring, creative and flexible, and I absolutely love working with and caring for children. My teaching background allows me to engage children in meaningful activities and to understand child development. I am consistently teaching the boys and girls that I care for!
