Meet Chartamia

  • Speaks Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets

Greetings! My name is Chartamia, but I go by Shay. I graduated from Columbia College Chicago, May 2013 with a BA in dance. Currently, I teach dance with age ranges from 3/4-5/7 yr olds in ballet, tap, and jazz. I also work as an arts administrator. Prior to relocating, I was a full-time nanny for two amazing twins for three years that are now 5yrs old. I also worked as a part-time nanny twice a week for an awesome little guy until he went to kindergarten. As both a full time and part-time nanny, duties included meal prep/light cooking/light housework/potty training/arts and crafts/reading and fun field trips to the park, zoo, library, beach, and museums. My experience extends beyond nannying, I've worked as a nursery teacher caring for ages infant-5yrs old and multiple summers as camp counselor. I'm truly invested in the growth of small minds. I center my care Read more and activities to cater to the child's developmental needs. I believe learning can be taught in many areas, rather it's in the classroom, studio, and or individual time. My goal is to help young minds reach their greatest potential in a nurturing and stimulating environment. Best of luck in your search!
