Meet Raquel

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! My name is Raquel. I have been working with children for about nine years (mostly in a classroom or daycare setting, but nannied for one year). I have experience working with children who are 6 weeks to 13 years old (the greater part of my experience is with children who are 6 months to five years old). I have taught in Montessori and Reggio schools and have worked with children who have higher developmental, emotional and behavioral needs. I also led a parenting class for two years. I am comfortable with potty training and happy to help. I believe consequences/redirection should be logical, appropriate to age and teach the child about the world in which they live. I know many games, activities, songs and snacks that keep children entertained and happy. I’m currently transitioning between careers and would love to do some work with kids. Thanks for considering me!
