Ruth’s Bio

We live in Halls, TN. and my husband is retired.  I just retired from  successfully working (37 years) as a mortgage professional.  With the declining market, I decided that I would LOVE to leave the mortgage business and enjoy my first love:  children.  I love all children and especially like to challenge them to learn new things.  I am a music major and introduce basic musical skills to each child.  I do not believe in corporal punishment, rather using "time out" to discipline.  If that doesn't work, I put them to bed for a little while.  I water ski, ride horses, play the piano/organ,  and am an avid speed walker.  I, therefore, regardless of my 67 years, am able to keep up with even small children and make their days fun.  The biggest accomplishment to me is having the children not be sad when Mommy leaves and always happy to see me coming into their home.  I am Christian & feel that is very necessary in rearing children. For the past 6 years, I have nannied a set of identical twin little boys until they went to school and then nannied two beautiful little girls until they, too, began attending school. I am all too happy to furnish you with references from both of these families, should you desire. Thank you.
