Meet Amanda

I am fun , energetic and very passionate about everything I do. I love having fun but I believe in taking care of homework and chores first above everything else. I'm great to be around and I have lots of positive energy . I love making people smile and helping others when I can. My mom has been caring for children since before I was born. As I got older, I helped her out whenever I went with whatever I could. I'd help her watch the kids while she did laundry or was cooking but I was mainly there to keep the kids company and I loved it. As I got older my love for children only grew and I began volunteering at a local elementary school. I went there every day after school and I stayed until the teacher left which sometimes was very late. The teacher I worked Read more with was a special needs teacher at an inclusive school; I worked with both children with special needs such as Down syndrome, autism, and ADD/ADHD and with children without special needs in the same classroom. For a few summers after high school, I volunteered as drama teacher in a camp for underprivileged children. I directed several shows, including Seussical JR and the Lion King. The children ranged from ages 4-13. Currently I have been nannying for the past 6 years and I am also an on call babysitter for over 50 different families all over NYC! I am a recent BFA graduate of Marymount Manhattan college and currently perform Improv and Standup Comedy all over NYC, but I am extremely flexible with time and days and duties. I can pretty much do it all and I'm very easy to work with. HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON :)
