I have been caring for children since high school. I took a dual credit Child Care and Guidance class at GHS. I love getting children outside and active as well as playing indoors and actively using our imaginations. Prior experience includes working as a paraprofessional at Silas Willard Elementary School with students with behavioral disorders ranging from kindergarten to third grade, in the nursery and in children's ministry and junior high and high school ministry at Bethel Baptist Church, nannying a toddler, occasional babysitting up to 5 children at a time ranging from infant to junior high, and I currently nanny a toddler with disabilities twice a week. I went to college at Carl Sandburg College for music and Colorado Christian University for music and theater. I believe singing, reading, art, and playing make-believe with children is integral to their upbringing. Previous non-childcare jobs include working as a personal assistant Read more which required heavy housework and cooking, retail and fast food which gave me experience in a fast paced environment, and home health care which gave me heavy experience taking care of people. I love animals, and I do not smoke. Above all I love taking care of people and making them feel loved and valued. I will send my full resume and references upon request!
