My name is Yelena. Over the last 13 years I have worked with 3 families. Children’s ages were from newborn to 13 years old. This includes 5 years work with boy/girl twins. My responsibilities ranged from active child care, household tasks, running errands to driving kids to activities and school. I prefer long lasting relations with families and children. All children that I have ever cared for, including my two adult daughters, are eager to learn, appreciate art, nature, enjoy traveling, and love trying new foods. My philosophy is to provide safe and healthy environment and to engage kids in exploration of the world through a variety of sensory experiences: visual, audio, tactile, and emotional. My goal is to cultivate children’s curiosity and teach them how to learn. In my previous life back in Russia I was a research scientist. English is my second language, but I am continuously working Read more on improving it. I am good with computers and other electronic devices. I have many hobbies including: hiking, yoga, hand crafts, reading, listening to audiobooks, learning French, and digital scrapbooking, so I think we will have some common interests with your family. I renewed First Aid and CPR certificate in 2011, and willing to renew it again. I live in Alexandria (22306) and have a clean driving record. I am very organized, reliable and enthusiastic. I am looking forward to meeting and talking with you about requirements and my qualifications in more details. Resume and References furnished upon request.
