Amanda’s Bio

 
I have worked with children for the past 15 years, starting my own babysitting service when I was 12. When I was 16, my first real job was at a daycare center, where I worked for 5 years. I still keep in touch with many of the families I cared for as well as the people I worked with. I have experience in every age group, from infant to teenager, as well as with multiples (twins, triplets) and multiple children at once. I have held positions as a teacher's aide as well as a lead teacher. I worked at a summer camp for 3 years, where I was a head counselor. In between day care and camp, I worked as a nanny for many different families in New Jersey and in North Carolina (where I had the pleasure of living for a year). I worked for the Middlesex Regional Educational Services Commission for 3 consecutive school years, where I was an instructional aide in a classroom for preschoolers with Autism. I have attended Kean University for Education with English and a Psychology and Music minor. Although I do not hold a degree at this time, I fully intend on returning to school to complete my degree in the future(night classes). I am very active in community theater throughout New Jersey. I sing, dance, act, and play a couple different instruments(My piano and guitar skills being the strongest). I am a very outgoing and creative person and I believe that the skills I use on stage in theater and in my music go hand in hand when you are working with children.
 
I am currently looking for a full time position with a great family. I am flexible to part time for the right fit and I am also available for occasional nights and weekends!
