I am a mother of 3 adult children and 2 dogs . I love to play make believe games, do crafts, and tell stories. I am high energy and like to be on the go. I have worked with special needs children/teens, infants, twins, and school aged kids. I'm currently working as a nanny for 10 month old boys and have been with them since they were 1 month. I am hoping to get a few date night positions with other families during the times my current family doesn't need me. I can even do last minute requests of I'm available. My hour are M-F 9-4 with the occasional evening or Saturday. I have no problem driving kids to their various activities, light housekeeping, or food prep. I have a BS in Business Administration but find I am happiest working with kids so have been working in fields where I Read more can "hang and play" with children. My rates are negotiable depending on needs and circumstance.
