Hi parents! Is the position still available? I'm very interested in taking care of your child. My name is Barbara Salgado, I'm 29 years old and I'm from Brazil; besides the Portuguese I'm at the intermediate level of English. I graduated in nursing in my country, where I have worked in a maternity hospital and at a nursery school. I've been living in Chicago for the past 8 months to pursue my English studies and working full time as a nanny, plus I had a lot of experience in Brazil. I am a reliable, trustworthy person, fun, friendly, multitask and pro-active, and at the same time, responsible, patient and very organized. I have a lot of experience with babies and children until 7 years old and I also doing babysitting on weekends! When I came to Chicago in 2017 I started working for a part-time family, took care of an Read more 18-month-old baby boy. I am currently working full time with a 8-month baby boy since he was 4 months old, but now they are moving to the suburbs and I will be available for other positions. Both of the families I worked with are available to provide reference, if you need. Feel free to contact me if you need anything else. I really appreciate your time and I hope you liked me. I would love to know more about your family. Best Regards. Barbara Salgado
