I am an educational professional who has spent the last 3 years managing special education & student achievement at a charter school. I am available over the course of the summer for vacations, date nights, etc! I have my masters in Educational Psychology from Hunter & my ungraded degree in Public Health from Davidson College. Prior to my current job I worked as an AT in a kindergarten classroom at a G&T school and ran a tutoring program at a Tanzanian orphanage. Over the last 10 years, I have nannied for several families with children ages 0-6. In 2008 I spent 3 months working at a home for abandoned babies in South Africa- feeding, changing, bathing, providing medication and developmental activities- for 5 babies at once. I also returned to SA in 2012 to do my undergrad thesis research on group homes for babies. I also spent 3 months volunteering Read more at an orphanage in Uganda, teaching English & leading after-school activities. I enjoy running & playing Frisbee. I hope to hear from you!
