Joan’s Bio

I am a very active retired educator.  I have worked as a full time Nanny since my retirement from teaching.  I have really enjoyed my Nanny experiences.  I have a strong education background.  I have two grown and successful sons.   
In addition to my full time Nanny position I taught ESL to three Korean children.  I am a warm and caring person and love watching children develope and explore the world.  I see my self as a "Mrs Doubtfire" and enjoy finding fun ways to work with children and their families.  I try and make everyday experiences a learning experience.  Like going to a fruit market.  There are colors, counting and naming all involved in such a visit.
I have a Masters Degree from Columbia University in NYC.  I also play the piano and enjoy most of the arts and also enjoy sports.   I work out everyday and enjoy a very active life style.

My daughter requested "Miss Joan" to come play again after the first time she met her! She was very verbal and interactive with both of my children, creative with her play and changed her style to suit the needs of whichever one of my children she was taking care of. She gently held my 3 year old accountable and straightened a bit when I was busy elsewhere in the house as a nice surprize. Bonus for me, she's familiar with gtube feeding so she was able to give me some respite care with my special needs infant and my oldest at the same time. She exudes the "loving grandma" persona naturally and I would use her again.

Joan is a truly wonderful nanny. She was excellent with our 7 month old daughter. She took her on walks, read books to her, played and took great care of her. Our daughter always lit up when she saw Miss Joan, which always makes a parent feel good about the decision to leave their child in the care of another person. I would highly recommend her to a family!
