Meet Laurel

  • Licensed Practical Nurse
  • Comfortable with pets

I am a "Retired" LPN with a current license. I have recently taken care of my two grandsons aged three and nine months while their mother had to be out of state for several days. I love children and babies and feel very comfortable taking care of them . I enjoy teaching and being part of the process of child development. I homeschooled my two children one who is an ER ICU supervising physician and the other who has her masters in special education. Both are loving and thoughtful parents. I am active, energetic, and genuinely love to play with children of all ages. From the age of 15, I worked in summer camps as a counselor, both with normal and special needs children. I was a group home supervisor with developmentally disabled residents before I became a nurse. As a young adult, I substitute taught elementary children and also Read more taught middle school in Italy for a year in 1999. As an employee, I I am very respectful of the rights of parents to decide how they want their children to be raised, values that they want taught, the schedule that is to be kept, etc. I am responsible, reliable, and will keep a schedule that I have agreed to.
