Maggie’s Bio

Experience
Most recently, I was a live-in nanny for a family with twins (boy/girl, age 4) and lived/worked with them since March 2012. I was able to do an extensive amount of international and domestic travel with this family and feel very lucky to have bonded so well with the twins (who I loved like my very own little brother and sister!) And family (who has gladly offered to provide reference!). My time nannying for them ended when I was unexpectedly offered a scholarship to study abroad, which is what I'm currently doing. I plan to finish my program this summer (July 2013) and will be looking for a fun, caring, energetic yet laid back family to begin nannying for then! 
While I was attending Oregon State University for my Bachelors, I worked as a live-in nanny (for two summers, for a family with a 4/5 year old daughter and newborn/1-year old son) and also a nanny for a family with a baby girl (only 3 months old when I started, and I stayed with the family for a year). I've also babysat for a family on occasion over the past 9 years (they have 4 children, ranging over the years from infant to 11 years). In addition to these nannying experiences, I've taken teaching courses at OSU, helped out in classrooms, volunteered for SMART (start making a reader today) in local kindergarten classrooms, worked for a year in Oregon State Universities Valley Library Daycare (our little village daycare) as a teacher/child care specialist (2008), been a counselor at a day cheer camp for a season (2009), coached co-ed little league soccer, and also spent two summers working as an Acadian Specialist Summer Camp Counselor at Camp Laurel in Readfield, ME (2007/2008).
I have a great driving record (US license and would be willing to get an international license), am CPR/First Aid certified, and am a non-smoker. I've done an extensive amount of traveling with the family with whom I previously nannied for, and therefor have a TON of experience traveling with little ones. I'm currently studying in Israel (which is a long distance from what seems like everything!), but am always willing to "Skype" in order to meet a family! I'm looking for a live-in position, my salary is negotiable, and I would be available beginning as soon as July 2013!
 
BIO
My name is Maggie and I'm 24 years old and a recent graduate of Oregon State University with my Bachelor's of Science degree in Speech Communication! I love children and spent many years working with them before, during, and after University! I've taught in classrooms, daycare facilities, been a camp counselor, coached, taken University Early Education courses and worked as a nanny (live in and out) for several families! As my next position, I would love to meet a family who needs a caring, responsible, mature, enthusiastic and loving nanny! I have always enjoyed working with little ones and view being an Au Pair/Nanny as an excellent way to do something I love while getting the opportunity to travel and experience new cultures/lifestyles!
In addition to my experience and education background, I genuinely just LOVE working with children! I truly have a passion for teaching, learning, and helping little ones develop! I'm extremely friendly, organized, enthusiastic, nurturing, reliable, flexible, energetic, honest and responsible. While I love to have fun and be silly, I always put the safety of children as my number one priority. In my spare time, I love soccer, reading, the outdoors, traveling and I'm an avid runner. I like to keep an active and healthy lifestyle, I am very open, warm and am always willing to try new things!
