Here's a bit about me. I also have a resume and excellent references readily available at your request.
I am very passionate about working with children. I have taken four early childhood education courses in college, however, I am currently studying American Sign Language Interpretation part-time. I take child care very seriously, and I feel that I truly understand and enjoy children! I believe in treating them as individuals, getting to know their personalities, and fostering their creativity and independence. My experience includes working at a daycare in a classroom with 2-year-olds for one year. Then I started working as a nanny and I've worked with various families for the past 9 years.
I love music and when appropriate or permitted, I will often play it with the children under my care. I typically like bluegrass, singer-songwriter, folk, new-age, etc. I play the banjo and ukulele (still learning) and bring those along sometimes, as the children really enjoy playing it too. I am an artist and do abstract painting. I also have a passion for herbal/home remedies.
I have a special knack for interacting with children; it’s innate and comes very easily to me. I typically have a quiet, calm, nurturing presence but at the same time, I am very funny and can be quite animated when working with children!
