Hi my name is Karin Shimoyama. I am 32 years old. I have had the opportunity to look after children for almost my whole life. I definitely have a passion for taking care of and teaching children. I studied early childhood development and psychology at Essex Community College and Columbia University. I grew up as the eldest girl in the neighborhood, so mothers always were happy leaving their children in my care. As I got older, I began getting paid for doing what I loved--watching little children! I loved it. When I got older, I went overseas to a study-abroad program. I lived there for four years, and during that time, found work as a tutor/teacher to help pay my tuition. Those years gave me lots of experience as both a caretaker and an educator. Since then I've been blessedl to have looked after a wide array lovely children as Read more a part time and live in nanny. :)
