Hello! My name is Leigha, I am 21 years old and I am extremely interested in your job posting. I have been a professional nanny in Albany and Pleasantville New York for approximately 4 years. I am looking for a full-time position as soon as possible. I have worked multiple nanny jobs throughout the past four years. My first job consisted of the care of a 3 and 4-year-old boys and my last position was to care for an 11-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy. Though both experiences were extremely different I loved both of them. I have worked with young children for six years, I first started by working at an Art History Museum in Albany. I was able to teach children about the benefits of art as well as work on their motor skills. I haven’t just worked with nannying but also I worked for a private practice of Read more Giving Hope. This company works with assessing young children with ASD and providing resources for them and their parents. I currently am studying applied psychology and human relation but I plan to attend a doctoral program for clinical psychology and hopefully work with children after. I also have been a competitive swimmer since the age of 4, continuing my career as a college athlete, I could teach your children how to swim efficiently. I am a non-smoker with a clean driving record. I also have grown up with animals my whole life and would be great with any animals you may have. I would be happy to provide references as well as meet or chat on the phone about the position. I hope to hear from you soon!
