Erica’s Bio

Hello! My name is Erica and I am 32 years old. In 2010, I finished my graduate degree at UNC-CH, where I earned a Masters in Teaching, specializing in Spanish K-12. I have 10 years of teaching experience, all of which included working with young children. I am certified to teach Spanish and ESL K-12, Middle School Language Arts, and Elementary Education. I currently teach middle school Spanish and help lead the lower/elementary school After Hours program at a Quaker school in the Triangle area (although I am thrilled to work with families of all backgrounds and religions and identify myself as spiritual - more on this later). As a nanny, I have travelled with families I worked with to the UK, the Caribbean, Hawaii, and LA for a full summer. I have been caring for children in my spare time for 20+ years. I adore spending time with children, and am committed to contributing positively to their development as they grow more fully into their authentic selves.
I love working with children, mostly because it doesn't really feel like work at all. It has its challenges, of course, but caring for and playing with kids is far more fun and meaningful than other positions I've held over the years to make ends meet (like waitressing, for example). I am fun, upbeat, and easy to work with. I very much look forward to meeting the next families I'll have the opportunity to be a part of.
Due to one parent's concern I have included the following: although I was once employed at a church on Sunday mornings, I identify myself as spiritual, not religious, and have absolutely zero agenda in terms of inflicting any type of religious/spiritual views onto the children I care for or their families. I am very welcoming and appreciative of all faiths, and respect any individual choices regarding this matter (including those who identify as agnostic or atheist). I am also completely open to working with families of all different varieties (and, in fact, prefer working with a diverse range of families).

Erica is amazing! She babysat for us from February through August of 2010 (7 mo). My daughter was 2 1/2 yrs when she started and baby #2 came in April. Erica was attentive, funny, intelligent, and had the energy to keep up with a toddler. She even did bedtimes--which is something no one else but my husband and I had ever done before. She sang Toddler to sleep with songs from The Sound of Music. When the baby came, she was patient with him (he was colicky) and she would bounce with him on the exercise ball and wear him in the Ergo to make him happy. It was so sweet. Her life experience and education are outstanding and she is an interesting person to talk with, aside from the kids. I think my excitement about her probably helped my toddler trust her and even fall in love with her. We moved out of state at the end of August and had to say goodbye. My toddler still talks about Erica! I give her my highest recommendation.

Erica sat with our 3 kids and was great! She was prompt in her arrival and was easy to work with. The kids loved her and are already asking when she can come back to play. This was my first time using Sitter City and leaving the kids with someone other than family or close friends and it was a fantastic experience. My husband and I don't go out often but she is now on our short list of sitters for sure!
