Lorelei’s Bio

Hello, my name is Lorelei! I am looking to help out the right families with their evening and weekend needs.
I am a 45-year-old mother of one energetic little girl. We have lived in Texas just 4-years on 01/14. My mother, my daughter and I relocated from CA to Round Rock, to be near family. My mom usually watches my daughter when I work.
I was a nanny to a darling little girl who was born prematurely and at 2.5 years, was in need of socialization, teaching, and fun. After a year the families needs changed and the father became a stay at home parent full time, that was 01/05/12 and I went back to school.
I am currently employed to pick up a 6-year-old boy from daycare by 6:00 p.m. and he is picked up, by his mother, between 6:30-7:00 p.m., four days a week (Tuesday-Friday), since May of 2011.
In January I secured a 3 day a week nanny position caring for 2 boys, this is to be a long term position.
In my 20's I was a nanny for three families over a 6 year period, two of the families had 2 children each, ages 6 months - 6 years of age where I spent 3 years and 2 years and the third had 3 children, 6 month - 7 years of age where I spent 1 year. I had been a sitter since I was 11 years old.
In my mid to late 20's I also went back to college and received my Early Childhood Education Certification and was a preschool teacher. At my most recent jobs, I was able to implement that education by working with the children in reading, writing, math, art, and indoor/outdoor activities including swimming, horse riding and bike riding.
For almost two years, in my mid-30's, I was a substitute teacher's aide for K-12th grade, after a move to a very rural town in California. During this time I was also a very active PTA member for my friend's children who had lost their mother in a car accident soon before.
As I mentioned above, I have a young daughter (who came when I was 40 years old and had lost all hope), so I spend my free time being her mommy and teacher. At just 3 years old she was further along then most preschoolers and at 5 she is beyond ready for Kinder.
I am presently in school, pursuing my Occupational Therapy Assisting degree, and plan to work in pediatrics.
I adore children and truly love being a nanny/sitter. I am a non-smoker. I have 2 forms of transportation (cars with car seats), I have a great driving record, a clean background check and am very loving to children, adults and animals (2 small Schnauzers in our home).

Lorelei was very punctual and prepared for our initial interview. You could tell from our conversation that she really has a keen focus on caring for children. Lorelei kept my daughter engaged and on her normal schedule. She was also extremely helpful with little tidbits to do in Austin with our little one since we're new to the area.
