Karen’s Bio

Hello,

 I consider myself to be a fun, patient, intelligent, loving, child at heart. These qualities along with my educational background in Child Study, have helped to make me the confident, organized, flexible, well-liked and recommended nanny I am.

I went into teaching because I have a passion and talent for working with children. I have my Bachelor's as well as Master's degree in both Special and General Education Birth-6th grade as well as a double major in Psychology. After finishing my Bachelor's it was clear to me that i wanted to work with children outside of the confines of the classroom and the "teach to the test" restrictions.

I enjoy being creative and developing well thought out activities that are unique to each child's strengths, weakness's and interests etc. In the past I have had many wonderful experiences working as a nanny both Live-in and out caring for children of all ages including newborns and multiples. I believe all activities can be a fun opportunity for learning and growth if you allow them to be. Creating "teachable moments" that are exciting and fun for children is something I love and pride myself in doing.

A great nanny is someone who can balance being a child's friend and authority figure while earning the child's trust and respect in a safe environment. When playing with children I think it's important to physically get down to their level, while becoming part of their world. My hours are extremely flexible and I am more then willing to help you in anyway that I can. 

I am currently looking for a nanny position that offers at least 20hrs per week, but more would be ideal. Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. If you are interested in speaking please send me a message so we can exchange phone #'s.
My resume is readily available and can be furnished upon request.
Warm Regards,
Karen
