Hello my name is Erika Cain and I graduated last year from Lesley University. I majored in Elementary Education and Creative Writing and now hold a teaching license. This year I am living in Thessaloniki Greece, as a English teaching fellow. I will be back at the beginning of July 2016 and am looking for a summer nannying job. I've been babysitting for the 10 years, I have experience with children of all ages. As a teacher I've worked with K through 6th grade. As a nanny I've watched babies from ages 4 months to 10 years old. Throughout college I watched a baby who was 5 months when I started watching him and 2 and a half when I left. I also worked with a family who had a 6-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl with sever Cerebral Palsy. I have experience and feel totally comfortable working with children Read more with special needs. In college I studied abroad in India for 4 months and volunteered 5 days a week in Mother Teresa's Orphanage in the disabled wing. I got the chance to work with kids who have Cerebral Palsy and Autism. I helped feed them, dress them, bathe them, play with them, work on school type things with them, carry them and care they deserve. I have a car and clean driving record, along with being First Aid and CPR certified. Can't wait to make some great connections with some loving families.
