My name is Kallie Simmons and I am graduating in May of 2014 from Hendrix College (which is a small, private liberal arts school in Conway, Arkansas) with a degree in Sociology and History. I am an Iowa native and grew up in Gilbert (outside of Ames) and am returning in May. Since I am not entirely sure what I want to do next, and because I love working with children I though a nannying position could be a great fit.
I have been babysitting and nannying on and off for nine years. During that time I have worked with children from 3 months to 15 years of age. Throughout my college career I rarely ever babysat or nannied, but I did gain other valuable experience in childcare. I worked at a Boys & Girls Club that serves over two hundred members, am an assistant troop leader for a group of ten 7-9 year old Girl Scouts, have worked in a school as a reading/writing/math tutor, and have worked as a CASA volunteer.
My experiences in childcare and my love of organization, communication, and spending time outside make me a great nanny candidate. I have high energy, am an optimist, and love reading.
Feel free to contact me with concerns or questions! I would love to hear from you.
