Mary’s Bio

I've lived in Roslindale for 21 years.. I've worked as a preschool Head Start and an Elementary School teacher. I've worked as a nanny for 9 months for a toddler. Before that I taught for 3 years at Conservatory Lab Charter School and 1 year in an Elementary School in Charlestown, MA. I also worked in the after school programs at CLCS. and BPS.

I've also worked for four families as a nanny for their infants and toddlers. In all these nanny positions I had additional duties such as cooking, shopping for groceries, picking children up from childcare, kids laundry, petcare, dishes, light housekeeping, errands, etc....

When I work with children, I like to do active things with them, such as taking them on long walks to playgrounds, and parks or swimming. I enjoy playing tag, hide & seek, etc.... I get down on the floor with kids at their level to play, give horseback rids, or read books. I also love playing laps it songs ("Trot trot to Boston, This is the way the lady rides, etc...), I take them to museums, library story time & other activities. The Boston Parents Paper is my childcare bible!

I play a lot of different types of music and dance to it with kids. I know many, many Lullabyes and kids songs. I've been teaching myself ASL and havie been using it with the children I take care of to give them some options for communicating (This helps reduce their frustrations when they aren't verbal yet.)
.
I also like to sing lullabies and read bedtime stories to kids. I like to pull out a board game and play these with kids. I love playing jumprope and teaching them jump roping songs.
Life is so much more fun with children in it!!
